In pictures: Inside Burj Al Arab’s new bar Gold On 27


Situated on the highest floor of the Burj Al Arab, the bar overlooks the Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.

“The Burj has a reputation for being very difficult to get into and for being very exclusive, but we’re trying to break down that boundary; we don’t want it to be inaccessible,” the bar’s general manager Paul Bradley told Time Out Dubai. “The dress code will also be more down-to-earth – no fancy suits or top hats.”

Staying true to its name, the spacious venue is kitted out in gold furnishings.

Lead design consultant for this project was multi-disciplinary architectural and interior design practice, AK Design, while the interior design consultant was Dubai-based Keane Brands design agency.

The dominant light source in the main bar area is a custom-made chandelier designed by Czech lighting manufacturer Preciosa.

“We were very excited to work on this wonderful project  and  we are proud of the decorative art pieces we have delivered,” explains Martin Fryzelka, managing director of Preciosa Middle East.


Tables and seating are open and no minimum spend charge is required.
