Tea-ter Tots

Polar Express Children's Tea

All aboard the Polar Express, your little tot’s non-stop ticket to Manhattan's most exclusive tea and slumber party!


Inspired by Chris Van Allsburg’s 1985 Christmas Classic, The Peninsula is this month steaming ahead with a special pastry and hot cocoa-filled Polar Express Children’s High Tea, held inside the dreamy Gotham Lounge.


A mere snowball’s toss from the pulsating heart of Midtown, Santa’s Little Helpers can curl up inside this reimagined carriage for a magical journey to the North Pole.


Twinklets will enjoy a reading of the book by the train’s conductor, and if the chocolate station doesn’t deliver a dose of holiday cheer, perhaps a visit from a gift-bearing Santa Claus will.


Smiles brighter than the Fifth Avenue frosting will ensue with every child receiving a personalised holiday gift box with a special bell inside. No stocking filler is nicer than a little something bespoke, after all.


As dress code prescribes – have your little ones don their plushest pyjamas for the ride. Parents, you need not reveal your silkies, but do allow yourselves a moment amid the festive frenzy to indulge in seasonal sips and a treat or five... and a Merry little Christmas it will be.


28 Nov – 5 Dec, 2015.
