Afternoon Tea at R Bar
Newly opened R Bar from the Rockpool Dining Group has a luxe afternoon treat for the weekends.
On Saturdays and Sundays the cocktail bar will be decked out with three-tiered stands filled with sweets and savoury pastries.
Choose between four dining options, each with French-pressed Lavazza coffee and Sri Lankan teas from Somage Fine Foods. Tea-infused cocktails available include chamomile-infused gin, Maidenii dry vermouth and lemon; sencha-infused gin with JC's Own Wermut dry vermouth; and Earl Grey-infused gin with Maidenii sweet vermouth.
The standard experience gets you three finger sandwiches, gnocchi fritti, anchovy toast, cheeses, a scone, chocolate tart, black forest cake and white chocolate cheesecake for $65 per person. Upgrade to the $85 option for a tea cocktail or glass of champagne.
Fancier options include additional Ars Italica Oscietra caviar, devils on horseback, neenish tart, macarons and lamingtons for $135, or $175 with a tea cocktail or glass of rosé.
Bookings are essential.
From 11am to 4pm.
