There are few more glam locations to enjoy afternoon tea than Champagne Central at Grand Central Hotel. Its marble floors, domed ceiling, regal pillars and glittering chandelier are worthy setting for a bar with such an esteemed history, having hosted JFK, Carey Grant, Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra when Grand Central was the hotel of choice for Hollywood stars visiting Glasgow in the 1940s and 1950s.

A Champagne afternoon tea at Grand Central would make a wonderful Christmas gift. Giving a gift of an afternoon tea is giving someone the opportunity to be indulgent; to eat cakes, smother scones with cream and jam, and wash it all down with copious amounts of tea and a glass of fizz. Champagne Central overlooks the main concourse of Grand Central Station, meaning guests can enjoy their tea while watching the comings and goings of the bustling station and dreaming of a bygone era.

Champagne Central Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea at Champagne Central

The afternoon tea at Champagne Central is as enticing as its surroundings. The tea includes the Chef’s selection of sandwiches, mini filled brioche rolls, freshly baked fruit and plain scones with clotted cream and preserves, and the Chef’’s top plate of cakes. Served alongside the tea is a glass of Champagne each from the Champagne bar.

The afternoon tea is hugely popular with 5pm customers. Recent reviews say: “The best Afternoon Tea deal I have tried so far thanks to 5pm. Food and glass of bubbly were perfect. Staff very helpful. Surroundings an added bonus… very comfortable chairs to relax in whilst sampling a lovely Afternoon Tea.” and “What’s not to like? Comfortable armchairs, prompt friendly service, (even though we were 45 minutes early), Champagne. Delicious food all washed down by a lovely cup of tea. Money well spent.”
