Launching on 16th November, The Tree House at Skylounge will offer guests a unique experience to escape from the rush of the City to a cosy, winter wonderland. Woodland branches embellished with lights will create an intimate, sheltered space, amplifying the magical atmosphere inside.

Up in The Tree House at Skylounge, guests can huddle over hot apple cider or opt for a cocktail from a bespoke menu created using Chairman’s Reserve Rum and Champagne Lanson. Choose from a selection of specially created cocktails including a Hot & Cold Spiced Toddy (featuring Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum, secret spices and hot apple cider - toped with a mountain of whipped cream), Plum & Rum Old Fashioned (a festive version of an old classic, with Chairman’s Reserve Rum, homemade plum purée and plum bitters), Treehouse Punch (Chairman’s Reserve Rum, fresh Thyme Tea and Lemon Juice, topped up with Rekorderlig Apple Cider and delicious fruits).


Accompanying the drinks is a warming winter food menu with highlights including succulent Treetop Burger Squares, decadent Truffle Mac & Cheese and moreish Spicy Chicken Nuggets with Bourbon Dip - all to be enjoyed whilst watching the City light up, as the long winter nights draw in.


Open Wednesday to Saturday, 5:00pm until late, The Tree House at Skylounge combines the mystic nature of a winter woodland with the cosy atmosphere of a tree house. Get lost beneath the dazzling canopy, whilst admiring the views of Tower Bridge, The Shard and The Gherkin.

Arty Afternoon Tea the hilton London Hilton On Park Lane Redesigns Its Chocolate Afternoon Tea with An Arty Twist

Famed for its quirky and stylish afternoon teas, London Hilton on Park Lane has redesigned its Confessions of a Chocoholic afternoon tea with a deliciously arty twist. Inspired by some of the greatest modern artists of our lifetime, the tea is modelled on works by the likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Guests will also have the chance to become artists themselves, decorating and adorning elements of the tea with their own designs and edible glaze.

The new afternoon tea, created by executive chef, Anthony Marshall, and pastry chef, Emmanuel Bonneau, includes delectable treats such as a geometric Piet Mondrian iced biscuit, a dotted rainbow lolly taking a lead from Damien Hirst, and a mini lemon and raisin cheesecake with a van Gogh sunflower chocolate print.

As well as the miniature masterpieces themselves, guests will be encouraged to let their creative juices flow, with an orange marmalade ‘paint tube’ to decorate and transform freshly baked cupcakes and scones. The afternoon tea also comes with a selection of traditional open sandwiches and a wide range of loose leaf teas, with the sweets served on a solid chocolate, edible painter’s palette, for added indulgence.

As a proud member of The Tea Guild, Podium’s afternoon tea is recognised as offering an exceptional standard of tea service. The new afternoon tea is available at Podium Restaurant and Bar from 2.00 p.m. – 6.00 p.m. daily, priced at £32.50 per person. A Pommery Champagne variation is also available at £40.50 per person.

rock and roll afternoon tea at the hilton

As an ode to the Rolling Stones coming to Hyde Park this summer The HIlton has created a special Rock n Roll Afternoon Tea.

Warming up for the British Summer Time festival, which will play host to two sell-out Rolling Stones concerts on 6 and 13 July, 2013. Like the hotel, the band is also celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion, London Hilton on Park Lane has created the Rolling Scones afternoon tea.

Paying homage to the rock legends, the Rolling Scones afternoon tea is inspired by best-selling albums, songs and other iconic symbols associated with the band, such as the world-famous tongue and lips design logo. As well as being regular guests at London Hilton on Park Lane, Keith Richards, founding member of The Rolling Stones, is also reported to have written the famous riff from Satisfaction at the hotel.

To satisfy diners’ taste buds, music-themed treats come served on an edible chocolate plate and include cherry flavoured biscuit lips; a 1978-inspired rainbow lolly; chocolate button cake; cheese cake with a tattoo twist; and tumbling dice based on the band’s top 10 hit.

Guests will also enjoy a selection of open sandwiches and themed cupcakes, including chocolate swagger space cake, lemon and sherbet popping cake, finger-licking sticky toffee and rockin’ raspberry cake. A choice of loose leaf teas and plain or fruit scones will also feature on the menu, with an array of condiments such as chocolate satisfaction, Stone strawberry jam and clotted cream. The Rolling Scones afternoon tea will be available from 1 – 14 July, priced at £29.50 per person.

London Hilton on Park Lane is celebrating its 50th Anniversary throughout 2013, marking the official date that its doors first opened to the public on 17th April, 1963. Celebrations include a unique and revealing commemorative book detailing iconic events from the hotel’s history, as well as the creation of three gold-inspired luxury packages.
