Having taken over Dubai with two venues south of the creek, New York cult burger venue Black Tap is rounding out its city-wide portfolio with a third venue, this time on the north side of the city.
Responding to the consumer demand, Black Tap’s famous craft burger creations and monster CrazyShake milkshakes, have landed at the licensed Waterfront Level of the InterContinental Dubai Festival City in early December.
“Our first two venues in Dubai are both runaway hits, and we’re so excited to share the Black Tap love across the city for more of the Dubai’s residents and visitors. Our third Dubai venue means the city’s residents will never have to travel more than 20 minutes to find their closest Black Tap,” said Chris Barish, Black Tap owner and restaurateur.
Antonio Gonzalez, CEO of the Sunset Group, the Black Tap franchise owners in the Middle East and Europe added: “Right from our early discussions on bringing Black Tap to the UAE, we were confident residents would love our CrazyShake milkshakes and craft burgers. Our new location in Dubai Festival City puts Black Tap front-and-centre in an area of the city which is undergoing a regenerative transformation. We are very excited about this opportunity to enrich and expand Black Tap’s success story in the UAE.”
Black Tap’s cool, downtown New York vibe fills each location from the design to the music. Custom street art can be find in every Black Tap venue, and renowned graffiti artist, Fumero – a long-time Black Tap creative collaborator in the US has created a wall mural for the new InterContinental Dubai Festival City outlet, his first in the UAE.
