Celebrate springtime in the speakeasy era at this new pop-up. The St. Regis Toronto has opened its new Rhythm & Blooms experience in its Astor Lounge, serving prohibition-era style ‘iced’ teapot cocktails, delicious bites, and cocktails in an enchanting setting.

The event is inspired by the St. Regis hotel’s founding family, the Astors, “who lived through the enchanting era of speakeasies and prohibition,” the hotel wrote on Instagram.

You’ll be treated to the sounds of live jazz on Friday and Saturday evenings as you sip among the pink canopies of cherry blossom trees and floral decor.

Some of the menu highlights include Citrus Smoked Salmon with orange cream cheese on pumpernickel, Raspberry Honey & Lavender Tart with crme diplomat and sable, Midnight Blossom Madeleineswith white chocolate ganache, and Baked Peach & Yogurt Panna Cotta with Ontario peach and vanilla Chantilly.
