The sun is setting on a Dubai institution, as 360˚ pulls its shutters down on May 12.

The popular Jumeirah Beach Hotel hotspot will close ‘in line with the planned refurbishment’ of the property, a statement read. While details of the new project yet to be revealed, Jumeirah Group has stated it will bring a ‘contemporary and fresh experience’ to the 13-year-old bar and restaurant.

The planned refurbishment will also extend to all guest bedrooms, the public spaces, lobby, retail areas, beach and outdoor facilities, as well as restaurants and dining outlets at the hotel.

Leading up to the closure, the hotel group has stated it will organise a series of farewell parties and gigs in the upcoming weeks, which will be announced across its social media platforms.
