The Goods from Bacchus
Vancouver, BC | Wedgewood Hotel’s Bacchus Restaurant (845 Hornby Street) will once again pay homage to a quintessential British pastime by reintroducing its popular Afternoon Tea Service on weekends at the award-winning downtown restaurant beginning Saturday, September 18, 2021.
Taking centre stage in Bacchus’ elegant dining room with a pair of two-hour seatings available every Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., the Afternoon Tea menu offers an irresistible assortment of gourmet handcrafted sandwiches, decadent pastries and savoury delicacies served on multi-tiered towers and paired with an array of terroir-true Tealeaves tea blends sourced from the world’s best gardens and estates for $65 per guest.
New to the Bacchus Afternoon Tea menu this year is a ‘The Windsor” option that supplements the service with guests’ choice of a glass or bottle of champagne, sparkling wine, or a glass of the classic French cocktail Kir Royale, allowing patrons to sit back, sip slowly and feel like royalty for an afternoon.
“For years, we’ve been proud to be one of the most coveted destinations in the city to indulge in this beloved and time-honoured tradition,” says Elpie Marinakis, co-owner and managing director of Wedgewood Hotel & Spa. “We’re thrilled to once again welcome back guests and local residents alike to enjoy the company of their friends and family during a luxurious service that’s truly fit to a tea.”
