The Runway Afternoon Tea is Set to Relaunch at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square on September 25

Guests can enjoy Afternoon Tea, champagne, cocktails and guided tours of Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows

September 17, 2020,
London at Ten Trinity Square

Rotunda Bar and Lounge at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square will relaunch The Runway Afternoon Tea on Friday, September 25, 2020.

The Afternoon Tea is inspired by renowned British photographer Simon Procter’s Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows exhibition, which lines the walls of the Hotel’s art-deco Rotunda, making for an immersive and exciting experience.

Widely regarded as one of the most outstanding photographers of his generation, Procter’s exhibition features images captured backstage at Lagerfeld’s shows, providing a glimpse through his lens into the inner world of Chanel and the celebrated designer. The Hotel's pastry team will bring the exhibition to life on the plate, creating a bespoke selection of imaginative patisserie that mirrors the photography of the most influential shows and creations at Chanel.

To celebrate the relaunch of the Afternoon Tea, the Hotel will be offering private guided tours of the exhibition as part of a newly formed Runway Experience.

The experience will include a table in Rotunda Bar and Lounge for up to six guests and Ruinart or Dom Pérignon champagne. The Hotel’s Gallery Manager will lead the tour and share exclusive insight into the world of Lagerfeld's infamous runway shows. Guests enjoying the Runway Experience also have the option to include The Runway Afternoon Tea on weekends for full effect.

For those who prefer cocktails instead of champagne, Director of Mixology Harry Nikolaou has created the Harlequin cocktail, a gin-based cocktail with rhubarb, almond blossom, clarified grapefruit and Mancino Sakura. The Harlequin is finished with whitened lemon and Diet Coke jelly as a playful nod to the famous designer’s favourite tipple.
