The glamorous Lobby Lounge, found in the main lobby at the well regarded Ritz-Carlton Dubai, serves a wide range of menus from classic afternoon tea to breakfast dishes, crowd-pleasing international mains and sweet treats.
Guests can enjoy their time relaxing under the dancing light of sparkling chandeliers, or you can venture outside to the terrace that overlooks the green resort gardens and blue ocean. At the heart of the dining room is a grand piano, and The Lobby Lounge regularly has a live pianist playing to accompany guests as they sit down for a meal or enjoy drinks. Live harpists also make regular appearances, and the seating is a mixture of comfy armchairs and plush sofas, where guests can make themselves at home.
The Lobby Lounge is an especially popular afternoon tea spot, and guests can enjoy afternoon tea under the chandeliers or on the al fresco terrace, which overlooks the verdant resort gardens and the Palm Jumeirah. Afternoon tea kicks off with traditional sweet and savoury scones and a selection of finger sandwiches before the sweets arrive - truffles, cakes and delicate macaroons in various flavours. Choose between a huge range of fine teas, or upgrade to a glass of premium Champagne if you’re feeling fancy.
Meanwhile, an all-day menu provides a range of dishes from morning to evening. Breakfast kicks off with chia seed muesli, avocado and labneh crostini, and shakshuka, whilst the lunch and evening menu goes with an array of easy-going international light bites like Caesar salad, chicken shawarma, club sandwich or penne arrabiata. There’s also a kid’s menu to keep the little ones happy.
The Lobby Lounge is a great place to relax with a drink - the drinks list is extensive and offers a multitude of drinks, but The Lobby Lounge’s true speciality is their whisky cocktails.
