Venue Info

Having served as New York's most coveted tea party destination for over a decade, The Palm Court at The Plaza is a mecca for finger sandwiches and china tea pots. In 2013, however, the tea room was renovated to include its very own bar -- excellent news for those who require a drink at 5pm, in lieu of a floral-painted cup of chamomile. And while the dainty sandwiches and doll-sized desserts aren't going anywhere, celeb chef Geoffrey Zakarian revamped the menu, as part of the eatery's relaunch, to include a more comprehensive selection of contemporary-American small plates. Reminiscent of Central Park, the space itself is littered with potted plants, hanging vines, and ceiling-high palm trees, all of which sit beneath a regal stained-glass-dome skylight. And while guests of the hotel are welcome to all of its greenery-framed, stained glass-lit amenities, The Palm court, maintaining all of the simple elegance of The Plaza, is open to the public.
