Tea Time

After coming home from Costa Rica, I wanted to take my sister out for her birthday since we missed Christmas Eve. She wanted to do a tea time so I decided to take her to The Allis in SoHo House. The Allis has tea time every afternoon. We decided to do the Sparkling Afternoon Tea. We got a tower filled with finger sandwiches, scones, a selection of fancy cakes, tea and a glass of prosecco!

After Tea Time, we kept the afternoon going, and went to a new bar down the street called The Darling. It was an adorable bar with great ambiance, and since we got there at 4pm it wasn’t too crowded.

A few weeks later we came back and I ordered the same drink I had gotten before, the Botanical Bees Knees. Ironically it came in a tea set since there is earl grey in the drink. We weren’t up in the ballroom that evening, instead in the library on the first floor located behind the flower wall. It was still a great atmosphere.

Tea time in Chicago was successful that day!


Brunch @ The Allis

I think brunch is honestly the best meal to enjoy in the city of Chicago, especially when the weather is nice because there are so many places that you can go! Me and one of my girlfriends went to The Allis and absolutely loved it. I had never been but a friend had referred to it as “very Instagrammable”. It felt like we were having an adult tea party. The decor and ambiance were absolutely amazing, and so was the food. The best part was the baked deserts! If you are looking for a cute brunch spot, the Allis is definitely the place to go. The best part about this place is you can go when the weather isn’t beautiful and still have a wonderful time.
