emporium - The Lounge, Open everyday from 11am til 11pm

Emporium The Lounge opened in October 2017 is a most intriguing and enchanting place that captures an era of elegance and grace where guests can enjoy fine champagnes, library wines and exquisite cocktails at their pleasure or partake of the most delectable delights and indulgences over a tipsy or traditional afternoon tea (high tea).

High Tea or afternoon tea?

High Tea is often confused with ‘Afternoon Tea’ and most recently with a prefix such as “Royal” that is used in an attempt to elevate the grandeur of the occasion where there is no requirement to do so.

Afternoon Tea is already the most quintessential and elegant English tradition and correctly presented is the most delightful and gracious manner to partake of refreshment with friends between lunch and dinner.

Generally served with fine bone china, a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches and a delightful assortment of sweet treats accompanied by a selection of the finest teas from around the world.

At Emporium The Lounge you can enjoy a delightful Afternoon Tea served in traditional style.

So if you’re looking for something a little special then you’ll find The Lounge is just the spot to enjoy Hawke’s Bay hospitality at its best with friends, family or colleagues,  from 11am – 11pm 7 days.
