A great place to enjoy high tea in Singapore, LeBar, is located within Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa, at 2 Bukit Manis Road.
Visiting the lounge bar, you’ll discover a luxurious open air, pavilion-styled lounge that is a perfect spot for afternoon tea in the day, converting into an intimate live piano music bar come nightfall.
The setting, inspired by 19th century – colonial-era pavilions with airy décor, radiant blown-glass chandelier, and plush furnishings, provides an inviting setting throughout the day to linger over coffee, cocktails, morsels of canapes, artisan sandwiches, French pastries, fragrant teas, shared plates, and more.
However, for many, LeBar is a destination lounge for an afternoon high tea set, where it is beautifully served in a customised jewelry box, alongside tea or coffee.
Althought the high tea menu changes from time to time, it typically contains small and pretty savouries, such as delightful smoked salmon, avocado bagels, and patisseries – decadent caramel praline eclairs and vanilla passion fruit tarts, paired with premium Nespresso Coffee or fragrant TWG Tea selections.
You don’t need to drink tea during the Afternoon Tea session, as alternatives range from like of Hendrick’s Gin cocktails to Taittinger Champagne, which are wonderful when paired with the array of finger sandwiches, savory amuse-bouches, and mini-pastries.
At night, the lounge offers live music and bespoke cocktails, transforming the space into a glamorous gathering place.
All-day, significant part of the lounge bar‘s appeal are the views from the tables of either the opulent lobby area or the aquamarine pool and South China Sea & beyond.
