Lifestyle hotel Andaz Liverpool Street has come up with an original take on the advent calendar, in what could be London`s most exclusive advent calendar.
The hotel`s five different bars and restaurants, private dining areas and gallery spaces add to the unique and personal approach to hospitality as well as its support of the local and international art and design scene.
This is executed superbly with a festive collaboration at Andaz Liverpool Street with designer Eyal Burstein of Beta Tank. In 2010 Beta Tank was awarded Designer of The Future award by Design Miami during the Art Base.
Burstein has created a table inspired by the idea of an advent calendar and for each day of December, a new treat made by the Andaz pastry chef will be revealed from a tea cup or trinket on the table and served to guests with warming drinks.
Burstein scoured flea markets in Brick Lane, Petticoat Lane and Spitalfields as well as local vintage and charity stores to find tea cups, bowls and other trinkets which he has moulded in a large octagonal hand-made resin table, creating one design object that captures the essence of community and sharing.
“Christmas is a special time of year at the Hotel and the advent table captures the essence of the season – generosity, warmth and unity. We wanted to create a welcoming area in our Andaz Lounge (lobby) for guests as well as the local community to gather and share the festive spirit.“ – Arnaud de Saint Exupéry, Andaz Liverpool Street General Manager.
Throughout December, Andaz will offer the `Andaz Advent Afternoon Tea` including mulled wine and a selection of pastries which will be featured as daily treats on the advent sharing table. Served in the stunning setting of 1901, the afternoon tea is £28 per person and can be booked by contacting London.firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 207 618 7000.
