Where to Eat in Hong Kong
Langham Hong Kong Afternoon Tea is served at Palm Court, the lobby lounge of The Langham, Hong Kong, a five-star hotel in Kowloon. And many tea connoisseurs consider it one of Hong Kong’s best afternoon teas. Both savory and sweet treats are included.
Palm Court is the lobby lounge of The Langham, Hong Kong. And the elegant space features natural stone flooring and painted timber columns.
Palm Court is fashioned after the eponymous lobby lounge at The Langham, London, where afternoon tea was served over 150 years ago.
And it is one of six food and beverage outlets at The Langham, Hong Kong.
Afternoon Tea with Alice Promotion
Palm Court celebrates the 156th anniversary of The Langham, London, with Afternoon Tea with Alice.
To clarify, Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, served as inspiration for the Afternoon Tea with Alice’s menu.
So what is the connection? The Langham’s flagship hotel in London opened in 1865. And that is the same year Alice in Wonderland was published.
More importantly, The Langham, London, was the first hotel to serve afternoon tea when it opened on 10 June 1856.
