Situated on the lobby level, The Drawing Room recalls the timeless tradition of Afternoon Tea, which Mrs. Astor, the founder of the original St. Regis in New York, established early on as a St. Regis institution.

Setting the stage for elegant teatime or an anytime snack, the modern space harmonizes marble floors with plush, abstractly patterned area rugs topped with informal groupings of contemporary sofas, leather armchairs, and coffee tables. A soaring wall of windows illuminates the space with island sunshine while high, arched ceilings and white walls add to the airy atmosphere.

Equally refined, the beverage menu includes signature tea blends as well as bubbly, coffee, and more. Light bites and snacks range from the savory—Crab Club Sandwiches, Spaghetti, and Asian flavors—to the sweet: Handmade Chocolates, Macaroons, and Bespoke Cake. Meanwhile, Afternoon Tea options include bubbly, signature blend teas, coffee, and guest’s choice of traditional Finger Sandwiches, Scones, and more.

In the late 19th century, Caroline Astor (mother to the St. Regis founder, John Jacob Astor IV) elevated Afternoon Tea to a new level of sophistication by introducing the ritual at elegant gatherings at her home in Manhattan. Now more than a century later and thousands of miles away, the Afternoon Tea tradition is alive at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi.

We welcome you to a warm, festive atmosphere adorned with traditional décor and live entertainment by Harpist that’s perfect for holiday celebrations. Along with an assortment of savory delights and traditional scones, our imaginative Pastry Chef has created a selection of indulgent pastries including almond stollen, spiced gingerbread loaf, yule log and more.
