Nestled atop Riyadh’s iconic AlFaisaliah Tower, the Globe provides a stunning 360-degree view of the city. Pair that with their High Tea and you have yourself a truly elevated weekend experience.
The moment the elevator opens to the main restaurant, you’ll be greeted by a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. Likewise, the atmosphere within the Globe itself does not disappoint—spacious, elegant, and inviting on a fine Friday afternoon.
The High Tea itself consists of sweet and savory buffet offerings to pair with their unlimited hot beverages. There is also a fun kid station, making it a nice family affair should you wish to bring your children along.
We appreciated the variety of savory treats, from sandwiches, canapés, salad cups, croissants, down to the sushi corner; no palate will leave dissatisfied. The dessert table is not to be overlooked either, providing a selection of crafted chocolates, macarons, cakes, and more.
To tie it all neatly in a bow, they offer one of the finest tea labels in the world, TWG. Coming in a variety of flavors, favorites like the Moroccan Mint and authentic Jasmine can be had here. Coffee lovers, worry not, you will enjoy a fresh brew here, too.
High Tea at Globe is perfect for friends, families, and couples wanting to enjoy a sophisticated yet relaxing weekend. We recommend going around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, and stay to watch the sunset on the city. Make sure you also pass by The Experience, an exclusive viewing deck that will leave you awe-inspired.
