In Via della Barchetta, in the heart of Rome, experience Afternoon Tea in true British style, uniquely complemented by tea-infused cocktails at the Charade Bar.
Nestled in the elegant structure of Via della Barchetta, Hotel De’ Ricci stands as one of the most charming hotels in the capital. Here, every afternoon, one can savor the essence of Afternoon Tea.
A Very Special Afternoon
The tea selection encompasses around twenty varieties – white, oolong, black, and green – along with an option for herbal infusions. Upon entering the lounge at Via della Barchetta, guests are greeted with a glass of bubbles as an initial gesture. Following this, the elegant trays adorn the Charade Bar room, showcasing an array of dry pastries and occasional savory delights like sandwiches, filled baskets, and focaccias. Lastly, of course, the choice of tea or herbal infusion to accompany the treats.
Furthermore, the establishment’s bartender, Marta Nafra, drawing on her past London experience, has crafted a drink list dedicated to Cocktea and Mocktea: three alcoholic and three non-alcoholic cocktails based on masala chai (an Indian tea, a blend of spices and milk) and matcha (green tea of Chinese origin). English-inspired drinks, to be savored in the elegant lounge of the Charade Bar, and available on the menu.
Hotel De’ Ricci
Beyond being a Wine Boutique Hotel with an impressive 1500 labels (over 10,000 bottles), earning it the title of Best Wine Cellar in Rome by Wine Spectator, Hotel De Ricci also boasts an exclusive and unique space in Rome: the prestigious fumoir, where one can enjoy high-quality cigars paired with spirits and drinks.
The address on Via della Barchetta is also the second in Rome to be recognized as a Habanos Lounge by the eponymous company distributing prestigious Cuban cigars worldwide.
The project bears the signature of a family deeply rooted in the restaurant industry and the proud owners of the historic Ristorante Pierluigi. Throughout the day, culinary proposals of absolute refinement alternate: open from 7:00 in the morning, the hotel offers a rich à la carte continental breakfast. Don’t miss the restaurant menu, available for lunch and dinner, to savor the freshest offerings from the kitchen.
Mixology enthusiasts cannot afford to miss the experience at the Charade Bar, Hotel De’ Ricci’s cocktail bar: hidden behind a curtain of blue velvet, the entrance leads to a space adorned with hand-drawn designs by the renowned artist Andrea Ferolla, scenes from the dolce vita and Roman evenings, a setting with a nostalgic and romantic flavor. The perfect place to be enveloped in a subdued atmosphere that provides intense moments of relaxation from aperitif to after-dinner.
