Seven reasons why you should try the Maison Assouline Barbie afternoon tea

Barbie and our favourite patisserie Ladurée have joined forces to create a limited-edition box of macaroons to celebrate the launch of new book The Art of @BarbieStyle book. For a limited time only, you can experience the Barbie afternoon tea in the heart of Piccadilly Circus inside the Swans Bar at Maison Assouline – what’s not to love?

Kirsty Welsh,
  • Enjoy tea in one of London’s historic buildings – the first Maison Assouline flagship store in the heart of Piccadilly


  • Experience the girliest afternoon tea we’ve come across – but hurry, as it’s only available until 1 July


  • Indulge in the new limited-edition Barbie strawberry-pink Ladurée macaroon (trust us, they’re very moreish) along with salmon and cucumber sandwiches with crème fraiche, served with Rooibos Bali tea and a pink cocktail


  • Maison Assouline is the only bookstore in the world where you can have a Barbie Mattel afternoon tea


  • A Barbie cocktail has been created especially for the tea. The mix of St-Germain elderflower liqueur, cranberry, lime and sugar is topped up with prosecco, and takes its Barbie-pink hue from a dash of strawberry syrup


  • After you’ve indulged in your afternoon tea, why not shop Maison Assouline’s expertly curated selection of books, interiors items and limited-edition gifts? All would make ideal souvenirs to take back home from your trip to London


  • Need another excuse to try it? Just think of all the Instagram likes you’ll get from this pink-themed Barbie afternoon tea …

The Barbie afternoon tea at Maison Assouline Swans Bar, priced at £30 per person, is served between 3pm and 5pm until 1 July.

Swans Bar, Maison Assouline, 196A Piccadilly, London W1J 9EY, +44 (0)20 3327 9370
