The Promenade

About The Promenade

Located in the heart of London’s Mayfair, The Dorchester has been a pinnacle of luxury for nearly half a century. This sense of history certainly hasn't been lost on The Promenade, home to the hotel's justifiably famous afternoon teas. Recently refurbished by Thierry Despont, The Promenade is now not only a gastronomic work of art, but a visual one as well. Start with a glass of Dorchester Rose Champagne followed by finger sandwiches, warm scones from the bakery and a selection of french pastries. Piano player during afternoon tea. Afternoon tea served at two sittings: 2:30pm & 4:30pm. An unmissable part of British life perfected.
