Here are some of our favourite places in Dubai where you can negotiate a deal, or make a presentation as you sip on your favourite rst ush.
LA FARINE CAFÉ & BAKERY JW Marriott Marquis Dubai
is ultra-chic space boasts an upbeat vibe thanks to its pop-colour decor, but retains certain age-old teatime traditions like tiered sandwich platters, scones and pastries.

LOBBY LOUNGE The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai
Host an afternoon brainstorming session at one of Dubai’s most glamorous addresses. The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai’s Lobby Lounge exudes classic elegance through its understated decor. The afternoon tea will have you raving with its Traditional Treat menu, featuring pastries and savouries, as well as scones accompanied by Devonshire clotted cream. Their most interesting offering, however, will pique the interest of all the corporate gentlemen out there. The Gentlemen Treat afternoon tea eschews the allegedly dainty teatime delights and serves up more robust offerings like wagyu sliders, accompanied by some single malt.
