Combining the passions for art and food, the culinary team has created the Loving Van Gogh Afternoon Tea along with Van Gogh-themed drinks for artsy food and beverage lovers. Additionally, the famed artistic works have provided plenty of inspiration for The Lounge’s desirable desserts. Guests can enjoy the ‘Starry Night,’ made of hazelnut chocolate mousse cake, and the ‘Sunflowers,’ which come in the form of green tea cupcakes.

Guests will also have a taste of traditional afternoon tea gourmet, with exquisitely presented pastries gently set on framed artwork, making the afternoon tea set a real work of art.

Don’t miss the three themed drinks created by the hotel’s imaginative culinary team, which are named after some of Van Gogh’s most renowned works. The creative cocktails also draw inspiration from the Dutch painter’s masterpieces, making for truly artisanal drinks.
