What's On (Dubai) - - TEA TIME -

BEST FOR: VIEWS

Sure, the Burj Khal­ifa might be a hot spot for tourists. But don’t let them nab all the ta­bles, as this may well be one of the best af­ter­noon tea spots in the city. Here, visi­tors can take their pick from mini-sand­wiches, patis­series and a 20-strong tea se­lec­tion, all whilst lis­ten­ing to a live vi­olin­ist. Fancy a more up­mar­ket ex­pe­ri­ence? The Lux­u­ri­ous Menu – yes, re­ally – in­cludes cham­pagne and a main course such as roast chicken with sea­sonal veg­gies. Our tip? Grab a ta­ble by the win­dow, of course. A nib­ble at the world’s tallest build­ing *and* spec­tac­u­lar sky­line views? It’s af­ter­noon tea at its finest.

Burj Khal­ifa, Down­town Dubai, Dubai, daily noon to 4.30pm, Dhs327 to Dhs515. Tel: (04) 8883828. Taxi: Ar­mani Ho­tel at­mo­sphere­bur­jkhal­ifa.com

The Lounge

Tea in a chest of draw­ers? It is at Ad­dress Boule­vard’s Art Crafted Af­ter­noon Tea. The first drawer in­cludes plas­tic-wrapped candy and choco­late caviar, while the sec­ond and third draw­ers con­tain a mix of sweet and savoury items, in­clud­ing smoked sal­mon and quail egg.

Ad­dress Boule­vard, Down­town Dubai, Dubai daily 2.30pm and 6pm, Dhs166. Tel: (04) 8883444. Taxi: Ad­dress Boule­vard, Down­town Dubai ad­dressho­tels.com

The Gin Bar

What bet­ter way to ex­pe­ri­ence a thor­oughly Bri­tish pas­time than on board a leg­endary lux­ury liner? Served in the gin bar, which was once re­served for vis­it­ing roy­als and first class pas­sen­gers, guests can ex­pect fin­ger sand­wiches, sausage rolls and mini quiches. If you’re feel­ing flush, you can get The Queen El­iz­a­beth pack­age for Dhs7,850 which comes with Dom Pérignon Rosé.

The Queen’s Grill, The QE2 Dubai, Port Rashid, Thurs to Sat 4pm to 6pm, Dhs195 to Dhs7,850. Tel: (04) 5268888. Taxi: Port Rashid qe2.com
