The Rosebery At Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park

Hong Kong, 30 January 2014 – Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London is delighted to announce that a new venue, The Rosebery, which opens in spring 2014, will be the perfect Knightsbridge backdrop for Afternoon Tea and Champagne cocktails.

Capitalizing on the hotel’s iconic location in the heart of fashionable Knightsbridge, The Rosebery, named after Lord Rosebery, was once a stylish tea room in the early 1920s, and has made a welcome return to its roots. The interior design, created by G&A Designs, captures the room’s Victorian origins, blended with contemporary touches. The design also makes full use of the expansive space and height of the room and its abundance of natural light. A beautiful fireplace is a central feature, together with specially commissioned one-of-a kind art pieces.  Every element in creating the Afternoon Tea and Champagne salon has been truly bespoke, including the new Rosebery China Collection by William Edwards, glassware by John Jenkins and uniforms designed by one of Britain’s young fashion designers, Charlotte Taylor.

To complement Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London’s existing gastronomic offerings, which include the two Michelin starred Dinner by Heston Blumenthal as well as Bar Boulud, the buzzing French-style brasserie and wine bar, The Rosebery will offer a chic afternoon tea service every day. A choice of Breakfast, Afternoon and Directors Reserve blends have been exclusively crafted to Mandarin Oriental’s specifications, together with a selection of speciality teas, in conjunction with the East India Trading Company.  Afternoon Tea will be served with a selection of fresh sandwiches, creative pastries, scones and seasonal jams all created by our dedicated team of Chefs. Once the evening begins, the elegant lounge will transform into a Champagne Bar, offering premier champagnes and champagne cocktails.
