The Emerald Room is teaming up with Hendrick's Gin to host the best kind of high tea: a boozy one with live entertainment. At this unconventional event, you'll be pairing high tea classics with the cabaret venue's signature entertainment and bottomless tea and coffee — or picking between cocktails and free-flowing champagne — with prices starting from $85 per person.

Every Saturday and Sunday from midday, you can pair lemon myrtle scones, cucumber and wild boar toast finger sandwiches, orange sponge cake and prawn toast with a selection of teas supplied by T2 or your choice of coffee — and you'll receive a complimentary side of thrilling entertainment.

If you're opting to replace your hot cuppa with a fruity gin cocktail, you can add on the curated Hendrick's Gin flight for an extra $40. This'll include three bespoke cocktails spanning a citrus-forward Hendrick's Lunar, a refreshing Hendrick's Classic accompanied by a slice of cucumber and the floral Hendrick's Flora Adora with raspberry tonic.

For champagne lovers, you can go with 90 minutes of free-flowing Moet & Chandon instead.
