Burj Al Arab features – Gold On 27
Gold On 27 is the Burj Al Arab’s newest lounge bar and is all set to open its glittering, gold doors to the public on April 8 after 18 month of making.
Located on the highest floor of the iconic landmark, the bar overlooks the Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline. Along with a good view, the bar will host ‘masters in the art of mixology’.
While the hotel is recognized for its distinctiveness, right from the arrival to the property restricted to reservations and hotel guests only, the new spot promises to be more accessible to guests and has created a new app that allows people to make a booking for the bar on the day of their visit. Tables and seating are open and there is no minimum spend charge is required.
The bar’s general manager Paul Bradley said that since the Burj has a reputation for being very difficult to get into and for being very exclusive, the team is working towards breakdown that limitation. The hotel will not be accessible and the dress code will be simplified, with no elaborate suits or top hats.
Just as its name, the spacious bar will have attractive gold furnishings. The textured walls of Gold On 27 shine, while the lighting effects create a chic atmosphere, with exclusive art deco design. The floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the Burj’s prime location and offer views all across both land and sea.
Enhancing the lounge bar atmosphere, resident DJ Darko De Jan (formerly of Armani/Prive) will feature deep, soulful house and lounge tunes every night from 19:00 to 01:00.
Visitors can order mixed drinks at Gold On 27, serving premium brands and a unique assortment of ingredients, which include saffron, truffle, goat’s cheese, charcoal and Fois Gras. The bar’s team of mixologists have created an imaginative menu that is brimming with contemporary twists, all named after local traditions and quotes. Mixed drinks range on average between Dhs100-Dhs140.
The pricing for the Burj Al Arab are actually lower than the rest of the hotel. The drinks will not be made in 20 minutes, the ingredients are prepared over several days. The selection are blends including Light Sweet Crude (using foie gras and blackened truffle oil), Scent of the Souk (using oud oil, rosemary and spices) and A Ghaaf, a Goat and a Camel (using goat cheese foam).
Dubai residents and visitors will be able to make bookings for Gold On 27 through an app, available on both Android and IOS. The booking is then activated upon arrival at the entrance to the hotel, allowing access to the property and the bar on the 27th floor.
