An entertainment institution in Dubai has called it a day.

The Music Room, a popular live music venue, will close its doors for good on September 30.

The nightspot was able to cater for more than 700 people and managed to retain its vibrant appeal by catering to a diverse range of genres.

It is unclear why the venue is to close with Alex and Fay Economides of M Management Company, which is behind the venue, releasing a statement that read: "We are proud of what we achieved, we built a stage together from scratch and it quickly became a melting pot for awesome live performances from around the globe,"

Since it opened in 2005 The Music Room has hosted concerts by bands the calibre of The Proclaimers, The Heavy, Avial and The Outlawz.
