Gold on 27 - an opulent all gold bar has opened at the top of Burj Al Arab in Dubai. The elegantly designed social space is accented with textured wallpaper, bar stools and an angular bar, all covered in gold. The feast for the eyes doesn't stop at the decor, one look over the city below from top floor of the hotel will leave you mesmerised. Arrive when the gold bar opens at 6pm for daylight views, or later for a more club like ambiance.

Staying true to the 7 star hotel's opulence, not only is the decor over the top with gold details, the cocktails are too. Cocktail prices at Gold on 27 start at AED 100 ($27 USD) which might be steep, but these cocktails are anything but ordinary.
A real show stopper is 'Scent of the Souk' made with cardamom spiced cream gin, mixed with spices cinnamon, nutmeg, rosemary and comes with 3 wishes from the smoking oil lamp. Another cocktail to try is the 'City of Gold' made with Banana Rye Whiskey, Benedictine, Pedro Ximenez, Rhubarb Bitters, Angostura Orange Bitters, and dehydrated rhubarb. It looks like a glass of magic potion.
If you're looking for something even more unique, go for Gold on 27's 'Light Sweet Crude' cocktail mixed with Foie Gras and aged Whiskey.
Reservations are required to visit Dubai's new gold bar, as it is located within the Burj Al Arab hotel. On the bright side there is no minimum spend, where as in the past the only way to visit the hotel if not staying there, was to visit for high tea or a meal which started at a couple hundred dollars.
You can make a reservation easily online and stop by for a cocktail or 2 accompanied by an optional cigar. Complete your visit with a gawking and photo taking session in the hotel's luxurious lobby.
