There’s something ultimately relaxing about a space where tea is served, and the Lounge at Address Boulevard in Dubai provides the perfect respite from the colourful chaos of the city outside its walls. With a tempting menu of treats, teas and small plates, it makes the ideal spot to enjoy a few minute’s peace and quiet with friends or family.
The floor to ceiling windows make the space feel bright and breezy in line with its food and drinks offering, while the furniture has been designed specifically to put people at ease. Comfortable armchairs are scattered throughout with low tables that work well for holding a few cups or an entire feast – depending on how hungry you are. The serene background music adds to the ambiance while the neutral palette of the walls, carpets and bar surrounds ensure nothing feels jarring or too disorderly.
When it comes to drinks you can expect a far-reaching tea menu that showcases some of the best loose-leaf varieties in the world; from fine black teas, through green kinds to rare white blends. If you prefer coffee, you’ll also find a comprehensive offering in this realm, with all the classics featured as well as Arabic and Turkish coffee serves should you fancy trying something a little bit different to your standard cappuccino. For little guests there is a whole round up of tempting softs including delicious-sounding ice cream-based malt mixes that come in flavour mixes like popcorn, banana and mascarpone or mint, chocolate chip and cherry.
If you find yourself in need of sustenance the short food menu is perfect for enjoying a light bite from. Dishes like hot and cold mezze platters feature as well as a selection of sushi, salads and sandwiches. For those with a sweet tooth, afternoon tea is served daily and showcases the patisserie’s selection of cakes, scones and sandwiches.
