Have you been wondering how to celebrate the momentous Golden Jubilee on 2 December?
The Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the biggest anniversary the UAE has ever seen.
Set in the beautiful Lobby Lounge of the five-star hotel, the Up in the Air circus afternoon tea will bring a sense of theatre and razzmatazz to the National Day celebrations with an exciting line-up of live acts and a 50-layered cake.
As guests take their seats, they can expect to tuck into a tradition afternoon tea spread of freshly baked, warm scones with lemon curd, strawberry jam and clotted cream alongside sandwiches such as confit tuna, lemon infused crème fraiche with caviar pearls and black olive served on focaccia, roasted angus beef with horseradish crème on an onion baguette.
For those with a sweet tooth there will be a tangy lemon and raspberry roulade, pistachio panna cotta and orange marmalade macaroons for the sugary kick.
And while you relax and sip on your tea, marvel at the stunning storytelling of the acrobatic performers and ballerinas who promise a jaw-dropping show with props like pianos and one enormous helium balloon
In partnership with Abu Dhabi Culinary Department, the Up in the Air circus afternoon tea takes place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 8 December with shows starting at 1pm at and at 3.15pm for the first and second show respectively.
