The venue is the second to close in Dubai in September. London concept Mahiki, which was located in Jumeirah Beach Hotel, also shut down in the same month after seven years in operation.  In July, after two years in operation, Little Black Door in the Conrad Dubai also permanently closed. It follows on from a number of bar and restaurant closures in Dubai,  including Hakkasan at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, and Left Bank and The Agency in Souk Madinat Jumeirah.
