Barbie Afternoon Tea
Whether you're a Barbie or just Ken, you won't want to miss this themed afternoon tea at The Langham Melbourne.
September 15, 2023
The Langham Melbourne is taking afternoon tea to the next level — the 25th level, to be exact. For nine days during the September school holidays, the venue's Alto Room will host a Barbie afternoon tea. Open to adults for the first time (for which you can probably thank the Barbie movie), it's sure to be a hit with kids at heart as much as kids — plus anyone who doesn't mind a nice cupcake with a stunning view of the Melbourne city skyline.
The menu features a variety of sweet treats, all of which are inspired by Barbie and created under the watchful eye of The Langham's Executive Pastry Chef Markus Bohm. There's the red velvet Barbie cupcake, the pink raspberry chocolate lollipop, strawberry macarons and Barbie pink spider shortbread cookies. Of course, no tea party would be complete without scones, with these ones served with rhubarb and raspberry jam.
Kids under 12 will also score a bag to take home, which includes a colouring book, pencils and, most importantly, a Barbie doll. Meanwhile, adults will be given a nice glass of sparkling. It's hard to say who gets the better deal here.
The Barbie Afternoon Tea is available between 11.30am–1.30pm and 2.30pm–4.30pm from Monday, September 18–Friday, September 22, and then from Monday, September 25–Thursday, September 28. Tickets are $85 for kids and $89 for adults.
The Langham will also be hosting a Paddington Bear-themed afternoon tea twice a week in the Aria Lounge at 4pm on Fridays and 10am on Sundays, if talking bears are more your thing.
