The lack of etiquette and manners in today's society getting you down? The Victoria Room in Darlinghurst is the perfect place for you.
From the moment you reach the entrance, the grandiose of this venue is prevalent. Entering through the doors you are met with a wide candle lit staircase and friendly, immaculately dressed staff.
The softly lit room is filled with antique couches, chandeliers, beaded curtains and dainty teacups with matching saucers, instantly transporting its guests to the Victorian era.
The restaurant/bar offers a range of dining and drinking experiences, but the most popular is their high tea. Every Saturday and Sunday afternoon an array of sandwiches, scones and sweeties may be devoured (in a very lady like fashion) with a choice of either tea, coffee or champagne.
On the back of the set menu, the rules of etiquette are clearly outlined to ensure no unruly diners ruin your Victorian experience. The high tea offered is not a cheap meal, starting at $45 per person, but it is a unique and surreal experience; more often then not your afternoon tea will be accompanied by a talented pianist, whisking you away to the days before iPhones and never ending deadlines and that is worth any amount of gold.
This venue is the ideal location for your baby shower, hens night, birthday or even just a catch up with old friends. A trip to the Victoria Room on Victoria Street Darlinghurst, is an absolute must for every woman who considers herself a lady.
