At W Brisbane's Living Room Bar so far in 2024, treating yo'self to high tea has also meant embracing fairy tales and Easter. Up next: thinking, drinking and eating pink. From Wednesday, May 1–Sunday, June 23, the venue's signature spread is being rebadged the Pretty in Pink High Tea, other than over Mother's Day weekend.

This new excuse to kick back over small bites and hot beverages — plus a cocktail or some champagne if you like — is on offer every Friday–Sunday. Forget lunch, because you'll need to head by between 11am–3pm, which is when everything from red velvet cupcakes with rose petals and raspberry opera cake with ruby pearls to mac 'n' cheese croquettes and shredded chipotle chicken are on the menu.

This is always an interactive event, getting you playing with your food — yes, literally. For the Pretty in Pink theming, you'll decorate your own vanilla buttercream cake before you eat it. The icing is coloured pink, obviously.

W Brisbane's high teas whip up a signature cocktail for the occasion as well, this time using pink-hued Archie Rose gin, raspberry cordial, lychee liqueur, lavender, honey and lime juice.

You'll pay $79 per person for the food, plus endless tea and barista-made coffee. Add a cocktail and the price is $99. For a glass of champers instead, it's $109. And there's a $45 version for kids, which features bottomless juice, tea, babycinos and hot chocolates.
