The popular burger and freakshake joint is opening soon in Dubai Festival City…

When it burst onto the scene at Jumeirah Al Naseem, it was an instant Instagram sensation. It’s popularity continued with the opening of a second venue in the Rixos Premium JBR. And now burger and freakshake chain Black Tap is set to add a third venue to its portfolio with the opening of Black Tap in the InterContinental Festival City. 

Set to launch in early December, the cult New York burger joint will land at the licensed waterfront level of the hotel.

“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,” said Chris Barish, Black Tap owner and restaurateur. “Our third Dubai venue means the city’s residents will never have to travel more than 20 minutes to find their closest Black Tap,” he added.

The New-York cool vibe that’s found in both of Black Tap’s first Dubai ventures is set to be carried through at their latest spot. At their Festival City venue, renowned graffiti artist, Fumero, who has been a long-time Black Tap creative collaborator in the US, will design his first mural in the UAE on the theme of family dining. 

Black Tap, InterContinental Festival City, Festival City, coming soon.
