Is there anything more luxurious than eating and drinking in the plush surrounds of an Armani-designed room? We don’t think so, and the Armani Lounge in Dubai’s Armani Hotel provides the perfect pick-me-up venue for when you want to take a little time to unwind from city life.
This gorgeous, serene space is flooded with natural light thanks to expansive windows that allow daylight to pour in from every angle. The lounge aspect is introduced through generously sized armchairs clustered around low tables, offering up the perfect place to enjoy a tea or coffee from, or something more substantial. It’s this understated luxury that draws the city’s elite and ensures a low hum from happy drinkers and diners throughout the day. While enjoying your time at the Armani Lounge you’ll look out onto some of Dubai’s most striking architecture, with beautiful views from nearly every place you sit.
To set yourself up for the day why not indulge in the breakfast menu, which features an array of dishes that includes classic serves like organic smoked salmon with bagel chips or platters of sweet, sun-ripened fresh fruits. There’s a full line-up of egg possibilities – covering all the favourites – as well as Arabic specialities if you’d like to try the local cuisine. Think labneh shtuah (cucumber and yogurt) or shakshuka with lamb meatballs garnished with rich, grassy olive oil.
Later on, you’ll find the Armani Lounge serving afternoon tea, a full three tier spread with sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones all featuring on the intricate stand. Additionally, there is a main menu which is served right through to 1.30am for all-day dining. Pick between healthy options like a cold mezzeh platter or a smoked quinoa salad, or plump for something a little naughtier with a cheesy pizza or a plate of crisp, deep fried vegetable samosas.
