The 1960s are cited by many as one of the UK's most defining decades. Often referred to as the Swinging Sixties, the era included the phenomenal popularity of The Beatles, the rise of fashion icons like Twiggy, and a post-war economic boom. A limited-time afternoon tea event at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa channels this vibe, with a fun menu incorporating motifs and colors that scream the 60s.
Iced cookies in the shape of A-Line dresses, chocolate terrines topped with motifs of vintage-style sunglasses, and eclairs shaped like the rounded low-heels that were popular at the time are just some examples of what's on offer at the event.
The event is priced at ¥ 5,400 per person, and reservations can be made by visiting the official hotel website here.
The Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa is located approximately six minutes on foot from Takanawadai Station (Toei Asakusa Line) or just under 10 minutes on foot from Shinagawa Station (various lines including the JR Yamanote, Yokosuka, Tokaido, and Keihin-Tohoku Lines, the Keikyu Main Line, and the Tokaido Shinkansen).
