Next time you’re in Dubai on a luxury holiday make sure you head for a visit to the new Fortnum & Mason Dubai. Our partners at Fortnum’s told us this is their first store in the United Arab Emirates; adjacent to The Address in cosmopolitan Downtown Dubai, situated opposite the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
The ground floor of Fortnum's Dubai is similar to the famous Piccadilly Food Hall, renowned for its range of tea, English biscuits, jams, sweetmeats and chocolates. Also on sale will be the iconic Fortnum’s hampers.
On the first floor is the new Tea Salon, where afternoon tea is served, while on the top floor you’ll find the scrumptious delights of the Ice Cream Parlour!
"This is a momentous event in the history of Fortnum's,” said Ewan Venters, Chief Executive of Fortnum & Mason. “We have always been outward-looking by nature, and have a tradition of serving customers around the world, so when the chance came along to secure such a fabulous site in such an important destination, it was just too good to resist.
"We feel the mix of Fortnum's traditions and the vibrancy of Dubai will be a powerful combination. Also, there's the fact that tea, for which Fortnum's is renowned, is the drink of choice for many people in the Middle East.”
