Taking a break from work and went for an impromptu high tea indulgence at Sofitel Singapore City Centre’s 1864 Lobby Bar.
The whole relaxing experience starts when I step into the lift lobby filled with a floral scent. While the hotel is nestled within a high-rise mixed commercial building, the check-in lobby is situated in a discreet upper level – offering more privacy for guests. 1864 Lobby Bar located on the same reception level, keeping general public eyes out of sight.
We settled down on one of the sofa lounge and I felt like reclining on the cosy cushions. Our high tea started with choice of freshly squeezed juice with either TWG Tea or Nespresso Coffee while we waiting for the set menu to be served.
Presented in a 4-tier stand were a variety of savoury and sweet finger food, from sandwiches, scones, puffs to desserts.
Looking back, it has been closed to 2 years since I last enjoyed a High Tea afternoon break. While the lobby bar in Sofitel City Centre doesn’t boast of any notable views nor sights, this break is a chance for me to recharge. It’s the escaping from the hectic work load that matters, hope to be back at work with a rejuvenated mind to tide me over the rest of the work week.
