High Tea in Style in Sydney
Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney has launched a new High Tea buffet by the incredible Anna Polyviou, at Blu Bar on 36.
High Tea devotees will delight in Anna Polyviou’s show-stopping sweet treats and savoury morsels, designed in the Punk Princess of Pastry’s distinctive style – and all with jaw-dropping views over the Harbour.
Guests will sink into plush velvet lounges and enjoy free-flowing teapot cocktails created by Blu Bar on 36’s renowned bartenders, including Passion Tea-quila and Pink Panther, a Mohawk concoction reflecting Polyviou’s hot pink hair.
“Blu Bar High Tea is a glamorous, colourful and delicious romp, with epic views of the city and harbour as a spectacular backdrop,” said the executive pastry chef.
“Everything’s been specially selected to reflect the bar and my style, from the buffet stands in my signature colours, through to the sleek glassware, teapots and cutlery.”
Dessert aficionados will savour a dazzling new menu, including Pina-Colada (coconut, pineapple, lemongrass and Malibu), Popping (caramel, pop-corn, chocolate) and Strawberries ‘n’ Crème (strawberry, mascarpone, vanilla), to name a few.
Anna Polyviou’s take on traditional high tea favourites will satisfy savoury lovers, like Egg (egg, mayo, watercress), Salad (goat’s cheese, vegetables, olive oil) and Quiche (roast vegetable and Lorraine).
Anna Polyviou’s Blu Bar High Tea buffet is available every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 1:45 to 3:45 p.m on level 36.
