Visitors to Liverpool looking to combine a cup of tea with some early 20th century hedonism can enjoy a sophisticated afternoon tea (usually £9.95) at the prohibition-era themed Sapphire Lounge. The decadent assortment of foods is accompanied by a choice of beverage, with various teas and coffees available. The twist comes in the form of a Dillinger's Punch (£9.95) cocktail, served in a teapot with teacups, to share between pairs.
The afternoon tea includes:
Scones with clotted cream and preserve
Selection of cream cakes
Smoked salmon, egg and cress and cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches
Tea or coffee, such as English breakfast, Earl Grey, fruit tea and filter or decaffeinated coffee
Stepping into the Sapphire Lounge is intended to feel much like stepping back in time to the twenties and thirties. The interior's decidedly art deco style utilises genuine prohibition-era furnishings to achieve its authentic feel while it serves up a wide array of food and drink. The establishment's staples include tapas, luxurious afternoon teas and assorted adventurous cocktails.
The Sapphie Lounge has received general acclaim with visitors adoring its stylish 1930's decor and the level of commitment to authenticity. The food and prohibition cocktails were also praised, with customers finding the staff to be helpful and professional.
