Description
Set in an idyllic Arabian ambience with Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building serving as its backdrop, Al Bayt, the Lobby Lounge at The Palace Downtown Dubai, is further elevating its charm with an array of new elements. The splendid lounge will resonate to the traditional tunes of Arabia by a live harpist, from August 26, 2pm to 6pm daily, adding to the majestic atmosphere of The Palace Downtown Dubai, a five star retreat nestled in the heart of Downtown Dubai. The mellifluous notes of violinist Olga Trifonova, a resident musician in a selection of hotels around the world including Busan in South Korea, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, will resound in the hallways of The Palace. From October 2 onwards, harpist Evelyna Markova, whose music stylings span classical, contemporary, modern, jazz, and Arabic, will perform a repertoire of songs from Europe and the Middle East, from 2pm to 6pm Al Bayt is open 24 hours.
