 Leading Dubai-based hospitality investment and management company is committed to international expansion and increasing operations


Dubai, United Arab Emirates –  Sunset Hospitality Group is further expanding its growing portfolio in the region, announcing the introduction of its first operational outlet in Beirut, Lebanon with Azure Beach Resort, set to open this month. This follows the group’s newest Black Tap branch opening in May at The Dubai Mall – the largest Black Tap venue in Dubai, UAE.

Scheduled to open in June 2020, Azure Beach Resort Lebanon will be located just a few minutes away from Beirut downtown, making it the ideal destination for fun-filled daycations and the ultimate summer holiday treat. Situated amongst lavish gardens and lush greenery, guests can enjoy the resort’s natural, endless ocean views. Much like other Azure Beach outlets, the resort will include elegant apartment options for short and long-stay guests, membership packages and benefits, a grand pool and children’s pool, making it perfect for families.

Antonio Gonzalez, CEO at Sunset Hospitality Group comments, “We are extremely excited to launch the first Azure Beach Resort brand in Beirut. Opening in Lebanon was only a matter of time, and we wanted to ensure we were bringing the right brand to the right location. Azure Beach has seen great success in Dubai and the Lebanese market is a good expansion step, paving the way for future openings in Doha and Abu Dhabi. Azure Beach Resort Lebanon will be a seamless fusion of breathtaking scenery, modern design, and curated experiences.”

“We are also very proud to launch the largest Black Tap outlet in Dubai, in the world-famous Dubai Mall, totaling our current operational outlets to 16 in the region, and more than 20 additional openings in the pipeline. This is an incredible achievement for the Sunset Hospitality Group particularly during these unprecedented times,” he adds.

Black Tap Dubai Mall opened its doors in May 2020. The venue features an expansive terrace, offering guests unobstructed views of the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain, along with a unique “boombox booth” perfect for diners looking for a cool yet intimate dining area. The outlet also includes two CRAZYSHAKE® counters offering a new ‘Grab and Go’ experience for customers, currently serving the beloved Brooklyn Blackout, Cookies ‘n Cream and Cookie Shake flavours.

Both outlets are following all government advised rules and regulations in regards to COVID- 19 as well as all other required safety protocols to ensure the safety and wellbeing of guests. In addition, Black Tap has introduced digital menus for the convenience of diners.

Sunset Hospitality Group maintains a positive outlook for the coming months leading up to 2021. With over 20 projects in the pipeline, the group continues to pioneer new openings in the market with unique global dining concepts highlighted by exquisite hospitality.
