The Rose Lounge

About The Rose Lounge

Afternoon Tea is back and Sofitel St James' Rose Lounge is leading the way. Imagine if your great auntie had style and you're half way to the Rose Lounge's look - pink floral prints and gold trim are de-Cartlanded to beautiful effect giving a feminine but sophisticated feel. Deep sofas are surrounded by bowls overflowing with fresh roses, books line shelves and an original fifties chandelier hangs from the ceiling. A unique dinner service designed especially for the hotel is just the start of an afternoon tea to remember - a selection of speciality teas are accompanied by tiny finger sandwiches, homemade scones and delicate Parisienne pastries. Pure decadence.
