The best of Subiaco fashion, food and fun
Years ago high tea was something to be endured on a big day out with your nanna, uncomfortable in a starched frock and on your best behaviour. Thank goodness things have changed. The 21st century high tea still has yummy cakes and dainty sandwiches but these days it includes cocktails and bubbly and can even be outdoors. Try this new version for yourself at Subiaco's High Tea on Hay Street.
Cakes and champagne...yum!
High Tea on Hay Street is really two events, making it perfect for a ladies day out.
The first is the high tea itself. This is a ticketed event held outside the Subiaco Hotel. Tickets are $50 and the price includes champagne on arrival as well as all the sweet and savoury goodies and tea of course. Local boutiques will be staging mini fashion parades and there will be music and an outdoor bar as well.
Why not buy a ticket or book a table of eight and discover the new world of high tea? You can even bring nanna.
Find a bargain at the fashion sale
The rest of Hay Street is closed to traffic for the free second event as the street becomes an open air fashion sale. You can browse the shops, stalls offering vintage and modern clothing, accessories, jewellery and shoes. There will also be food stalls and entertainment.
