Restaurant news: Business Bay restaurant Morah has closed down
Update: Potential good news! The Morah team internationally, which is based in Miami, has announced plans for an ‘exciting reinvention’ of the 71 and 72 floor space of the JW Marriott Marquis in Business Bay . The Eastern Mediterranean restaurant, Morah, has closed its doors to make way for a brand new and exciting concept that will add to the emerging Dubai dining scene. Keep an eye on Morah’s social channels to see what’s in store next.
Sadly, Business Bay restaurant Morah has closed its doors under a year after opening.
Mediterranean and Middle Eastern fusion restaurant Morah, occupied the 71st and 72nd floor of the JW Marriott Marquis (above Weslodge), but we reached out to the restaurant today and they said they’re closed “indefinitely”.
Morah, which opened in December last year, had panaromic views from its floor-to-ceiling windows and came with a chic gold and neutral palette fit out. The restaurant, on the lower floor, was joined to the upper bar area via a spiral staircase.
The detailing in the design was modern, sleek and well put together, and the food was great.
What will take its place, or indeed when, is still not known.
Morah’s closure is the latest in a string of restaurants that are shutting down in the Downtown and DIFC area. Four concepts in DIFC, including two in the Four Seasons (Firebird Diner and La Luz are both no longer in operation).
This came shortly after the announcement that Fortnum and Masons at the Dubai Mall was also closed for good.
We’re sad to see so many venues going out of business, but look forward to seeing what restaurants are announced next.
