The Lobby Lounge is the toast of Victoria, offering a grand space which celebrates the past and embraces the future. Elegant, in every sense of the word, this timeless lounge is home to the world-renowned tradition of Tea at the Empress.

TEA AT THE EMPRESS 

A grand tradition for over a century, the world-renowned Fairmont Empress has served England’s most beloved ritual of Afternoon Tea to famed royalty, celebrities and dignitaries alike. Reinvented in the new Lobby Lounge, Tea at the Empress will continue this quintessentially Victorian tradition. Learn more about Tea at the Empress.
