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!
