Time Out Says

This afternoon tea at Palace Downtown is a suitably regal affair, as you’d expect from the name of the famous hotel.

Tea is served in Al Bayt lobby lounge, which is bright and airy with huge windows offering views out across the lush green gardens below.

Choose from a traditional English or Arabic afternoon tea in this Arabesque lobby and whichever you opt for you’ll be delighted with the choice.

The Arabic tray offers treats such as shawarma and kofta concoctions, scones flavoured with saffron and cardamom, and camel milk crème brûlée, among others, menu depending, and it’s a top option if you have guests in town who want to try something a little bit different.

If you’re more keen on an authentic afternoon tea then there’s a classic one to dive into, with traditional crumbly scones ready to be slathered with cream or jam (in whichever order, we’re not here to judge) as well as delicate finger sandwiches and a pick of tasty cakes.

The vibe is mellow and upmarket – this is somewhere you can wear your nicest frock too – and you’re sure to have a sophisticated afternoon here.
