The second branch of the freakshake and burger hotspot completes the foodie line-up at the Rixos Premium.

Black Tap was one of the year’s biggest openings when it first started serving in the beautiful Jumeirah Al Naseem hotel in February 2017.

The New York export, which is famous for its gravity-defying milkshakes and epic burgers, would see guests waiting up to two hours for a taste (and, let’s be honest, a snap for the ‘gram).

But there’s good news for Black Tap fans, as a second serving of the Instagrammer’s paradise has just opened in the Rixos Premium on JBR.

The biggest Dubai restaurant openings and closings of 2017
Coming soon: 16 restaurants, bars & clubs opening in Dubai

The licensed spot is open daily from 11am to midnight, and will be serving up the same menu that many Dubai foodies have already enjoyed at the Jumeirah branch.

The opening of Black Tap completes an already impressive line-up of restaurants, clubs and bars that have turned the Rixos Premium into quite the foodie destination.

It joins Azure Beach Club, Mediterranean beach grill Riviera, a super-sized serving of Lock Stock & Barrel, new nightclub Inner City Zoo, American steakhouse-meets-party spot STK and the recently-opened contemporary Italian Luigia to make the eighth opening in the hotel, alongside all-day dining spot Turquoise.

Black Tap, Rixos Premium, JBR, daily 11am to 12am. Tel: (04) 520 0000. More info on website
