Enjoy gold afternoon tea in the Burj Khalifa

Armani/Lounge is offering up the spectacular spread for just Dhs183 per person

Everyone loves a bit of afternoon tea. The carefully sliced finger sandwiches lined with cucumber and cream cheese, the endless pots of relaxing chai and those delightful trollies full of cake.

It's like a brunch every day, and it's so Dubai. But now Armani/Lounge has figured out a way to make it even more luxurious – by decking it out in gold.

The restaurant is offering a contemporary spin on a classic dining occasion from its home in the Burj Khalifa, and it's just Dhs183 per person.

Sandwiches on offer include Maine lobster and caviar with a touch of gold leaf on black bread, or alternatively a fresh combination of golden beets and feta.

Next up is the patisserie (our favourite course), which features a golden Paris-Dubai choux, gilded brownies and scones filled with golden raisins.

Of course, it's all served with a hearty range of preserves and clotted cream.

It is available every day from 3pm until 6pm until Sunday September 30 at Dhs183 per person, or Dhs313 per couple.

This is an afternoon tea that might just prove all that glitters really is gold.

Of course, if you prefer something a bit more traditional (and less golden), then we've got plenty of options for you, too.

Just upstairs in the Burj Khalifa (well, more than a hundred flights of stairs up) is At.mosphere Restaurant and Lounge – the place for a truly elegant afternoon tea experience.

It's on the 122nd floor, meaning mesmerising views across the city. Indeed, we loved it so much that it took home Best Afternoon Tea at the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards 2018.

Another top choice is Al Fayrooz Lounge in Madinat Jumeirah, which offers up an epic spread including hot and cold savouries, cakes and pastries with views of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah too.

Pass us the patisserie, please.
Dhs183 (per person), Dhs313 (per couple). Daily 3pm-6pm. Until Sun Sep 30. Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai (04 888 3666).
