There’s no time like the present to explore the Bloor-Yorkville area and embrace the holiday season! The neighbourhood is decked out in festive lighting, we have traditional carolers spreading cheer, and if you stop by between now and Dec 11th, you’ll catch the stunning Fleurs de Villes NOEL: Bloor-Yorkville installations! If you’re looking for an extra special way to celebrate with friends or loved ones, we recommend one of our fabulous Afternoon Tea’s, taking place at the Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, and Windsor Arms hotels.
Four Seasons Hotel: Festive Afternoon Tea
This is an exciting moment for the Four Seasons Hotel as they’re re-introducing their Festive Afternoon Tea! Sittings take place every Saturday and Sunday from December 3 – December 17th from 12 pm – 4 pm and daily from December 23rd to December 26th.

The Festive Afternoon Tea also includes a glass of champagne, making it a great choice for an afternoon out with friends!
Stop by the hotel’s East Lobby afterward to browse their silver and glimmering gold “Festive Desk,” which is curated with a selection of gift baskets and spa and restaurant gift cards to make gift giving a breeze this season.

Park Hyatt – Afternoon Tea at Joni Restaurant
The Park Hyatt Hotel offers three Afternoon Tea options: Pastry at the Park, Tea at the Park, and Indulgence at the Park. Each of the experiences promises a luxurious experience, featuring tasting menus of either sweet treats or both sweet and savoury (depending on which tea service you book) from the Joni kitchen and sommelier-selected teas from Sloane Tea.
As the name suggests, “Indulgence at the Park” is a truly decadent experience that includes caviar and a glass of Dom Perignon, so we suggest this option for an extra-special someone in your life. The three experiences are detailed online here. and can be booked from Thursday through Sunday. There are currently reservations available for their Holiday Tea taking place Dec. 24th – 26th.

Windsor Arms – High Tea
The Windsor Arms High Tea has been a long-standing tradition of the hotel. Taking place in the Parisian-inspired lobby tearoom or fireside in the lush “purple room,” their tea promises an opulent “trip back in time.”
If you’re looking to experience your own Old Hollywood moment, we suggest tea in the Purple Room, as this is where Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor (for the second time!) in 1967. The Windsor Arms also offers a unique “teatime cocktail classics,” menu to pair alongside the savoury and sweet food menu.
