The Signature Afternoon Tea and Artisan Chocolates at The Drawing Room

The classic afternoon tea is an iconic tradition that has graced the gatherings of luminaries for centuries. The sophisticated ritual at The Drawing Room is inspired by the original afternoon teas hosted by Lady Caroline Astor, the founder of the first St. Regis hotel in New York. Mrs Astor started hosting afternoon teas in 1904 as way of introducing herself to New York society and gathering with her closest friends, and since then it has become a signature and defining part of The St. Regis experience.

Encompassing a full spectrum of enticing textures and exotic flavours, the collection will instil a new appreciation for fine chocolates in each and every guest. Meanwhile, the newly unveiled enchanting chocolate waterfall is guaranteed to captivate every passer-by, leaving them enraptured and filled with awe.
