Whether you are Looking for High Tea or Afternoon Tea in Chicago…

If you are wanting to plan a special occasion for your girlfriends, your mom, family in town, or you just want to find a cozy place for tea, Chicago has many really beautiful places to enjoy afternoon tea or high tea. Some of the best hotels in the city host amazing afternoon teas or high teas that will give you the full traditional English tea experience. During the holiday, these same hotels will have a special holiday tea as well. Many of these afternoon tea services have the option to also add champagne, which is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or to celebrate the holidays. Who doesn’t love a boozy tea party!? So try afternoon tea at The Common Club at the Virgin Hotel, they are known for their unique and boozy upside down teatime. Here’s a list of the best places to go in Chicago for high tea.

Where to go for Afternoon Tea in Chicago

There are also some really cozy and affordable places to have a cuppa afternoon tea with your girlfriends. Two of my favorite places to go for afternoon tea is either the 3 Arts Club Cafe’ at Restoration Hardware or Pierrot Gourmet Cafe at the Peninsula Hotel. I love that I can grab a pot of tea and a sweet treat after a day of shopping with my friends. It’s not the full high-tea experience but both places are really nice and perfect for an afternoon tea date.  Here’s a list of the best places to go for afternoon tea in Chicago.

  • Vanille Patisserie
