Naughty or nice festive high tea with a W twist at W Brisbane

Naughty or Nice? Fuel your daring or sweet side to bring out those Xmas feels

It’s that time of year, you know the gist

If I have made it onto a naughty or nice list.

Let’s eat this feast before you make your call

As the answer might just lie in that Xmas ball!

This festive season W Brisbane is bringing a bold and playful take on the traditional hotel High Tea, daring guests to embrace their naughty or nice side. Kicking off on Friday 20th November, Brissy locals and hotel guests will be tempted into questioning what list they will be landing on this Christmas.

Served in Living Room Bar, the pulse of the W scene, from Friday to Sunday every weekend, this clever take will answer all High Tea fans prayers until January 10, 2021. Guests wanting to keep it fun these holidays can enjoy an unexpected pairing of traditional English standouts and our Aussie faves, infused with a quintessential W twist.

Each carefully curated menu item will ignite nostalgia in guests as they are transported back to their childhood with bold, visual designs that re-create festive memorabilia. For the naughty guests, charcoal and feta arancini will be reminiscent of the lump of coal found at the bottom of a Xmas stocking while a mini pancake with red pesto and chive crème fraîche will be the spitting image of a Santa Hat!

The stellar line up of treats will range from savoury bites such as a smoked turkey mousse with Davidson Plum powder and cranberry sauce, served in a beetroot cone evocative of a Xmas stocking, to a Crème De Menthe chocolate tart with pistachio dust – could conjure some Xmas Grinch vibes!

Guests can pair the tasty treats with their preferred tipple, whether it’s a ‘Bad Santa’ Hennessy cocktail or a delectable ‘Tipsy Angel’ Belvedere vodka cocktail. A fence sitter? No dramas, a glass of Veuve Clicquot Champagne might be your choice of poison, all alongside limitless Blooming Teas, Classic Teas, Coffee or Hot Chocolate.

Never boring, a ‘Naughty or Nice’ sweets sphere will be the centre of the action and keep guests guessing, carefully constructed with Valrhona white rosé chocolate for the ultimate surprise ending to an epic High Tea. Guests can soak it all in and wait for Living Room Bar staff to burst open the ball with a toffee hammer, deciphering once and for all whether they fall into the naughty or nice bucket as the tasty contents emerge.

Live it up this festive season and be deemed ‘Naughty’ or ‘Nice’ with W Brisbane’s innovative take on the traditional High Tea.
