Traditional Afternoon Tea has been given a glam-rock makeover at K West Hotel in Shepherds Bush. Guests can swap traditional hot drinks for tea-infused cocktails, and even enjoy the treat late at night like a true rockstar from 10pm-1am. Who doesn’t love cocktails and cake at midnight?
Formerly the BBC Building Kensington House in the 60s, an endless list of Rock ‘N’ Roll royalty has stayed, played and misbehaved at K West including Bob Marley and the Wailers, Bowie, The Kinks and Roxy Music, to name a few.
Priced at £22.50 and served from 2-6pm in the newly launched Studio Bar & Kitchen, The Glam Rock Afternoon Tea will pay tribute to the hotel’s music heritage in a playful, fun and stylish way. The tea will be served on vintage record covers, with electric blue and pink teapots and teacups, adding some glam to the rock.
A Glam Rock Prosecco Afternoon Tea is available for £29.50, and the ‘Rock ‘N’ Cocktails Midnight Tea is priced at £32.50. This cocktail tea will include a selection of five shots of cocktails, or one cocktail each. All tipples will be made using different flavours of fruit tea, such as ‘Lemon Lennon’ with Citrus vodka, limoncello, lemon tea, lime, soda water and lemonade; or ‘Elder vs Flower’ with Hendrick's gin, mandarin vodka, elderflower tea, fresh lime and lemonade.
All of the Rock Tea’s will include fresh ‘rolling scones’ with clotted cream & strawberry compote, as well as a selection of delectable cakes decorated with edible music notes, Mini gooey chocolate brownies; Lemon tarts; Almond & orange cake; a selection of Macaroons and White Chocolate Ganache Lollipops spiked with popping candy.
A selection of delicious finger sandwiches is also included, such as Scottish salmon and cream cheese on rye bread; British ham and old school piccalilli on white seeded bread; and Coronation chicken on fruit & nut bread.
The Glam Rock Afternoon Teas will be served in the newly refurbished Studio Bar & Kitchen, which has also been designed to reflect the hotel’s rich music heritage.
