High Tea with Breathtaking Views

Sponsored by

Take high tea from up high in a Sydney landmark

Centrally located in Circular Quay, the Shangri-La’s upper storeys boast views to make the heart soar. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the appropriately named Blu Bar on 36 offers unimpeded views of both Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.


As arresting as all this is, you may find yourself distracted by something just as beautiful, but even closer to hand. The High Tea buffet, created by revered pastry chef Anna Polyviou, is a sumptuous feast designed by a woman known as the Punk Princess of Pastry.


Teapot cocktails, including a Passion Tea-quila and Pink Panther, set the mood for beautiful interpretations of high-tea classics such as quiche with roasted vegetables, goat’s-cheese salad and a caramel, popcorn and chocolate dessert called Popping.


Add sparkling wine and champagne into the occasion and you have an experience rich in taste and high in style, all looking out over two of Sydney’s most beautiful icons.

176 Cumberland Street, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia


Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney boasts an extraordinarily beautiful view of the city’s internationally recognised landmarks, including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour.


Nestled in the heart of the historic Rocks district, this contemporary hotel features 565 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites, reflecting the vibrant hues of Sydney Harbour and beyond. The hotel stands alone in the city for its unparalleled personal service and its elevated, unobstructed, 270-degree views of Sydney’s glittering jewels.


The Horizon Club on level 30 is Australia’s most sophisticated guest lounge in a five-star hotel. The sumptuously decorated space has 13m-high windows spanning four storeys, as Sydney’s sweeping vistas glisten below.


Altitude takes dining experiences to new heights. Nowhere else in Sydney will you find such an award-winning fine-dining establishment hovering high above the city. The renowned Blu Bar on 36 serves creative cocktails in a sleek space at the very top of the hotel.


And for those seeking a tranquil escape, CHI, The Spa is an urban oasis which draws inspiration from ancient Asian healing philosophies and offers more than 20 specialised treatments.


Let the breathtaking beauty of Sydney envelop you in its magic at Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney.
