Nestled in the heart of ICD Brookfield Place in DIFC, you’ll find the incredibly chic Josette, where we experienced their incredibly luxe Afternoon Tea.
Set against a backdrop of green and pink, the venue screams ‘excess’ in the best possible way. Everything is carefully curated from the clashing chintz sofas and decadent art adorning the walls, to the beautiful Josette-stamped china and white napkins; you’re instantly transported to Paris in the heart of Dubai.
We sampled the ‘Sparkling Afternoons’ high tea, featuring savory petit fours and a multi-layered platter of sweet indulgences, paired with their signature blend of teas and a glass of Josette’s finest bubbles. The candy coloured macarons and selection of viennoiseries were a nice additional surprise, while the blueberry ‘caviar’ cheesecake may have defeated us this time, but full marks for ingenuity, presentation and taste.
It’s the little touches, though, that really make this place stand out. From the ‘press for champagne’ buttons concealed within the table lights to the opulent mirrored bathrooms and pink marbled accessories, it is easily one of the most instagrammable haunts in the city – and that’s no easy feat.
A wonderful way to wind down a Friday afternoon, we’ll definitely be back for more.
‘Sparkling Afternoons’ – Available every Wednesday to Friday and Sunday from 3.30pm – 5.30pm | AED 180 – non-alcoholic package per person AED 250 – Champagne package (inclusive of 1 glass of Josette Champagne)
