Dubai’s highest sky lounge opens at The Address, Downtown Burj Khalifa


”A room with a view” reaches new heights with the opening of Neos – a striking lounge inspired by the Art Deco era

The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai, the first and flagship property of The Address Hotels + Resorts, the newest hotel brand to enter the international luxury hospitality scene, has opened Neos, the highest lounge in the city of Dubai.

Visitors will find Neos on the hotel’s 63rd floor where the panoramic 360 degree views across the city offer the ”wow” factor. The name Neos derives from the Greek word ”neo” meaning new and ‘eos’ meaning dawn, bringing a young and fresh venue to Dubai’s social scene. Here guests discover a glamorous and exciting destination where Dubai’s jet-set meet and mingle. 

Cora De Conceicao-Stuart, Hotel Manager of The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai explained: “We wanted to portray exclusivity in the design of Neos and define it as a venue dedicated to glamour and luxury. It is definitely a destination venue and a ‘must see’ place for residents and visitors to Dubai who are looking for an upscale yet retro experience.”

The hotel’s interior designers, WA International have taken an inspirational trip into the past and created in Neos a space that has its roots in Art Deco with a contemporary twist, the design concept encapsulating elegance, exclusivity and exquisiteness.

Exiting the lift at Neos, guests are immediately drawn to the floor-to-ceiling windows where the view encompasses Burj Dubai – the world’s tallest building – the nearby Burj Dubai Lake and spectacular sights of the city.

Neos offers a host of features which are both aesthetically pleasing as they are stimulatingly entertaining. Apart from the panoramic views outside, there are tasteful touches inside which provide a flow of movement: the beverage outlet has been fashioned from black granite infused with reflective quartz, giving a twinkling starlight effect. Overhead, crystal chandeliers enhance the starburst effect while a fibre optic light curtain surrounds the high gloss black lacquer lift case, further adding to the dramatic shimmering ‘feel’.

With a contemporary look and an elegant retro influence, Neos portrays a sense of relaxation and sophisticated lifestyle. The décor is enhanced by six-meter high columns made out of mirror polished stainless steel cladding which are down-lit, creating a highly striking effect. Complementing the design features are furnishings which are understatedly elegant and in a monochromatic colour palette with blacks, silvers and greys, enlivened with rich wine for contrast and warmth.

The menu in Neos reflects the hotel’s philosophy of ”Where Life Happens”. Delicate yet creative dishes include French oysters and Boston lobster while the world caviar selection is a highlight. Open daily from 6pm to 2am guests can enjoy other delicacies such as Homemade Duck Proscuito with Foie Gras terrine, Wagyu beef croquette and Fine de Claire Oysters.  On the beverage list is a fine selection of premium beverages and some classic and innovative mocktails.

The 196-room flagship hotel which opened in October 2008 is situated in the heart of what has been hailed as the most exclusive square kilometre development in the world. The Address Hotels + Resorts brand targets corporate, leisure and group travellers – particularly international jet-setters and global high achievers who value personalised luxury.

The Address Downtown Burj Dubai will be joined by two sister properties, The Address Dubai Mall and The Address Dubai Marina in 2009.
