The afternoon tea ritual with delicate
sandwiches and warm scones is one that is normally preserved for
women, an experience that Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is famed
for in both Clipper Lounge and Cafť Causette.
This March, however,
the hotel will launch a series of special afternoon teas for
gentlemen to enjoy in the famed Captainís Bar and The Chinnery.
The Chinnery and Captainís Bar are both known and loved for
their gentlemen's club-like surroundings, with leather booths and
dark-wood furniture, and now men will be able to
meet and relax, or secure business deals over two different
afternoon teaís the Gentlemenís Power Snack and Gentlemenís Power
Afternoon Tea, which have been created especially for them. Both
of these sets will include a chilled draft beer of their choice
served in the famed silver tankards.
The Gentlemenís Power
Snack will feature a mini pulled pork burger, a truffle croque-monsieur,
an English pie and a chocolate cigar. It costs HK$238 per person.
On the other hand, the Gentlemenís Power Afternoon Tea will
include roast beef with mini Yorkshire pudding, pork pie, smoked
salmon bagel, welsh rarebit and truffle croquet Monsieur, along
with an array of sweet treats from The Mandarin Cake Shop such as
a chocolate brownie, apple pie and, naturally, the chocolate cigar
can be changed to a 12-year Macallan whisky for an additional
ďAfternoon tea can now be enjoyed by everyone,Ē
said Director of Food and Beverage, Nicolas Dubort. ďWhilst ladies
and children can enjoy delicate finger sandwiches, cakes, scones
with clotted cream and our famed rose petal jam in the elegance of
the Clipper Lounge and Cafť Causette, gentlemen can now retreat to
the masculine setting of Captainís Bar or The Chinnery to enjoy a
tea experience that we have created especially for them.Ē
The Gentlemenís Power Snack and the Gentlemenís Power
Afternoon Tea will be available between 2.30pm and 5pm Monday to
Saturday in the Captainís Bar and between 2.30pm and 5pm Monday to
Friday in The Chinnery.
To celebrate the launch of
these gentlemenís afternoon teas, The Mandarin Barber will also
launch a tailor-made Gentlemenís Retreat package. This will allow
gentlemen to enjoy not only the Gentlemenís Power Afternoon Tea,
but also a 30-minute reflexology in The Mandarin Barber. The cost
of this special package is HK$488.
