Embracing Rock n’ Roll w/ the K West Hotel and Spa’s Afternoon Tea

11/04/2017

Music has been a part of my life since I was a kid. While my parents mostly focused on religious music or just turned on the first station on the radio, I can say that most of my taste or familiarity with music came from school or my other family members. Rock n’ Roll has been in and out of my life, but at the end of the day, I will say that I do love the genre at my core. I grew up listening to a little of Bob Marley, The Beatles, and other big names in Rock n Roll, but I had no idea where many of these big names recorded music while they were in London. Well guess what? The BBC Building Kensington House in the 60s that most of these artists used is where the K West Hotel and Spa is located! This hotel is perfectly located in Shepard’s Bush and breathes the spirit of Rock n’ Roll into everything they do…including a good Afternoon Tea! The Hat Logic - Embracing Rock n' Roll w/ the K West Hotel and Spa's Afternoon Tea

During my abnormally short time in London, I was able to experience their Glam Rock Tea and let me tell you, it was amazing! The afternoon teas are served in the Studio Bar & Kitchen which is a beautiful venue on its own, but when you add in the afternoon tea, it’s a gorgeous venue! The afternoon tea revolves around music and from the moment you get the menu, you see how K West loves its heritage.The Hat Logic - Embracing Rock n' Roll w/ the K West Hotel and Spa's Afternoon Tea

The traditional afternoon tea is much different from the K West afternoon tea, but let me tell you….it’s so tasty. I’m not just talking about the little sandwiches, scones, and other sweets that come on top of the tiered structure, but the tea itself. K West’s afternoon tea is a special blend, made with black tea leaves, cherry, peppercorn, peonies, and rose petals! How amazing does that sound? The Hat Logic - Embracing Rock n' Roll w/ the K West Hotel and Spa's Afternoon Tea

Well, the afternoon tea comes in 3 options: the Glam Rock Afternoon Tea at £24.50 per person, the Glam Rock Prosecco Afternoon Tea at £31.50 per person, and the Rock N’ Cocktails Tea at £36.50 per person and a special Rock ‘n’ Cocktails Midnight Tea served between 10-12am! Each tea is served on vintage record covers, with brightly colored blue and pink teapots and teacups used to serve your tea! Can you find a better link to rock n’ roll? If you’re not looking for tea, they also have a wide spread of amazing cocktails that you can get during your time. The Hat Logic - Embracing Rock n' Roll w/ the K West Hotel and Spa's Afternoon Tea

If you’re wondering what they serve in terms of food, there’s a tasty set of pinwheel sandwiches, with a wide array of mixes from pesto to salmon! There’s a host of scones and jams (which I loved and wanted to sneak into my bag), and these itty bitty shells that held some savory treats as well!

The K West Hotel is located in Shepards Bush, about a 5-6 minute walk from the Shepard’s Bush station, which makes it a great location for a stay (mhhhmmm who knows, maybe a location for my next stay in London?), but also a great place to embrace your inner rock star!

  6. The way you wrapped this review of the K West afternoon tea was breathtakingly brilliant! You mixed it with history, glamour, nostalgia and personal memories. Next time I’m in London (actually two weeks from now) I’ll be sure to check their afternoon tea out as this was a bedazzling piece of storytelling and I was enchanted by it! Absolutely love it!
