Christmas Vintage Tea Parties at The Grapes, Thursday 28 November-Thursday 12 December
It may be a relative newcomer to the Bath merrymaking scene, but the scrubbed-up old/new proper pub that is The Grapes (Westgate Street) has swiftly earned itself a glowing reputation for bringing a diverse array of dining options, events and general good fun to a hitherto unloved historic hostelry.
The uniquely tantalising Budō Bā thrives in the pub’s upper-level Jacobean dining room every Friday/Saturday evening from 5pm-late, the live music line-up is lively (to say the least!) and – to keep the good times/downtime balance in check – Weekday Wellness events and activities include yoga, pilates and life-drawing classes. In summary, The Grapes is indeed a pub…. but not as we know it. So might we suggest that, this festive season, you make full-on friends with it? Here’s one of the many ways to get that acquaintanceship rockin’:
Hosted by Bath’s very own Secret Tea Party fairies, The Grapes is offering a series of gloriously indulgent, contempo-elegant afternoon teas served in Pocock’s Living Room (yup, that Jacobean dining room.) The array – a selection of finger sandwiches, sweet and savoury fancies and unlimited cups of tea – will be served by staff dressed in full retro-vintage regalia while the soothing sounds of a live Swing band complete the sophisticated, escape-from-it-all experience. Two sittings a day (1.30pm and 4pm) on selected dates between Thursday 28 November-Thursday 12 December guarantee that there’s at least one booking with your name on it; clickety-click right here, right now to get the (tea) party started.
