Tokyo: Afternoon tea at TwentyEight – Conrad

Afternoon tea at Twenty Eight at Conrad, Tokyo

One of the days, I was meeting Rieko for afternoon tea at TwentyEight at Conrad. Everything is cute in Japan and afternoon tea at Conrad is no exception. Scones, macarons, sandwiches and beef sliders were all lined up in a sushi-like way, ready to eat with our fingers. Every little piece was a true blessing for the taste buds! How is your approach to afternoon tea? Would you attacks the most tasty-looking morsel first, or save the best for last? If going for the latter approach, there’s always a risk that you’ll get full early, and thus miss out on the best part, but I know myself and my big appetite, and I always finish, so I prefer to round off the meal with the highlight:)

The afternoon tea was served in the bar/lounge TwentyEight, which, surprise surprise, is on the 28th floor. TwentyEight has a magnificent view of Hama Rikyu Garden and the Tokyo Bay area from the floor-to-ceiling windows and there was a musician playing soft jazz tunes to further enhance the very elegant ambience. Most of the other guests were Japanese females in pastel-colored outfits, and the entire lounge felt a bit like a room in a dollhouse.

The feel of TwentyEight is very similar to what you experience at New York Bar, Park Hyatt in Shinjuku, and we talked about how amazing this place must be in the evening, high above Tokyo’s busy streets. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the time to go back for dinner and drinks, but next time Conrad, I’ll be there.
