Afternoon Tea at Hotel Bristol

Afternoon Tea is a time honoured British tradition. It was introduced in Britain in the early 1840s and evolved as a light meal, which soothes the hunger before the evening and stems anticipation of the dinner.

Afternoon Tea served in Hotel Bristol, Warsaw, is an enduring custom. It includes a selection of the finest finger sandwiches, freshly baked buttermilk scones with clotted cream, jam and traditional home-made pastries created by our Pastry Chef. Complemented with a rich selection of premium English teas and herbal infusions of pure herbs, flowers, and fruits, it becomes even more luxurious when served with a glass of chilled champagne.

You will enjoy your traditional Afternoon Tea in the luxurious surroundings of the historic Column Bar, a rare Art Nouveau masterpiece and a truly unique place in the heart of Warsaw. The spectacular interior of the bar, originally designed by Otto Wagner the Younger in 1901, has been restored to its original grandeur enriched with distinctive details, creating an intimate ambiance, perfect to enjoy fine beverages and food.
