THE BIG ROOFTOP TEA & PARTY: Selfridges goes ‘bang’ for Britain
This summer London’s department store Selfridges is reopening their legendary rooftop in celebration of all things British to honour both the Queen (the Jubilee celebrations may have passed, but the lady deserves attention through the summer!) and the upcoming London Olympics.
The venue opened on May 31st and will stay open until September 2nd. The Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party transforms the roof into a destination for a round of a crazy golf like no other and a 100% organic tea-shop for the highest afternoon tea on Oxford Street. This is not the first time however, when the Selfridges rooftop was the place to be seen – in the 1920s it was the it-place in town for the ladies and gentleman of society. With the undeniable passion for all things vintage and quintessentially British that has the taken the town by storm this year, the location is bound the be most happening rooftop in London this year!
GOLF: The very crazy, cake-based 9-hole golf course is designed by British food architects, Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, with each jelly, icing and fondant-clad hole representing one of London’s most famous landmarks. Half the crazy golf sessions are ticketed and the other half are allocated on a walk-up basis, Tickets for June are sold out but simply visit the roof entrance lift in the Fragrance Hall on the Ground Floor and the lift host will advise about current golf availability.
TEA: The 100% organic Daylesford Cafe will serve a traditional British afternoon tea, with a twist. Open from 12 noon until 10pm each day, the Selfridges roof will be the destination for a royal lunch, a proper afternoon tea and summer evening drinks and dinner, all six stories above London’s busiest shopping street.
