The venue itself is Landing Point, the hotel's swanky all-day dining spot. And in addition to its gorgeous surroundings (the paved marble floor and crystal sculptures dangling over the bar really completed the look), we were totally impressed by the service.
Our waiter not only helped us pick out our preferred tea from a menu of around 20 different blends (black, green, herbal, you name it…), but when our tea arrived, he even unscrewed the honey jar, spooned out a little, and stirred it into the cup for us! The only time we even lifted a finger was to drink it.
If we had happened to be in the mood for a cocktail at 3 in the afternoon (not something we generally make a habit of), there would have been plenty of options for that, too, as the bar is filled with endless bottles lined up along the shelves. Thankfully, our appointment was business-related, so tea and a biscuit was plenty.
Afternoon Tea is clearly a thing in lots of hotels, but this may just be the classiest act we've encountered so far. To experience it yourself, show up between 3pm and 5:30pm, though Landing Point is open all day (7am-midnight Sun-Thurs; 7am-1am Fri-Sat).
