The Waldorf Hilton parties like it’s 1920.
The five-star Waldorf Hilton hotel is reviving its Tango Teas, the infamous tea dances which were all the rage in the 1920s – the hotel was one of the first venues in the city to offer tango lessons 100 years ago. The Tango Supper, as it is now called, launched on Sunday 8th July with further events planned for later this year. The events will take place in the stunning Palm Court which was the room that inspired the ballroom of the Titanic, featuring beautiful ceilings and luxury interiors.
The Tango Suppers include a glass of Fantinel Rose on arrival, followed by a 45 minute tango class with Argentine Tango professionals, Leonardo Acosta and Tracey Tyack-King. To coincide with the Tango Suppers the hotel has created a Tango Essence cocktail, available at the refurbished Good Godfrey’s bar. Once guests have danced the tango they will sit down for a relaxing two-course dinner whilst the two professional dancers Leonardo and Tracey take to the floor and perform a dazzling dance routine.
The package including a 45 minute Tango lesson, cocktail, dinner and room costs from £390 per night. However if you only want to dance and dine then it will set you back £105. Whilst the Olympics are running the Tango Suppers will take a break, returning on Sunday 28th October, Sunday 18th November and Sunday 23rd December to this property which happens to be one of the most iconic Hilton Hotels. Put on those dancing shoes!
