The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai offers a small corner of upper elite New York for those wishing to immerse themselves in the heritage of the revered Waldorf and The Astoria hotels of NYC. Peacock Alley referred to the daily strut and saunter of notables through the original colonnade connecting the two opulent properties in New York. Now the eponymous lounge at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah celebrates the local glitterati of Dubai as Peacock Alley, this week’s #foodiegram, has swiftly become recognised as an ultimate place to see and be seen in the Emirate.
Set overlooking the hotel’s striking central gardens, the contemporary sleek lounge offers a selection of fine teas including the Waldorf Astoria signature blend, plus coffees and light meals. A classic afternoon tea remains a popular option while the opulent Peacock Alley terrace can’t be missed. Sit back and admire the glitteringly futuristic Dubai skyline while remembering the past with a traditional shisha, served as dusk falls through to midnight.
The aptly named Indulgent Saturdays revolve around a very generous High Tea, which starts with a series of canapes and includes a bespoke tea trolley and infused cocktails. Indulge and enjoy the pianist-in-residence tickle the ivories as the sun sets across the Palm.
