Unveiling a shimmering fusion of history and luxury, Raffles Makati proudly introduced its Swarovski Afternoon Tea at The Writers Bar on September 27. A collaboration between two iconic brands, each embodying over a century of timeless elegance and meticulous craftsmanship.

Founded in 1895, Swarovski’s expertise in precision-cut crystal has earned global acclaim. Similarly, since opening its doors in 1887, Raffles has been synonymous with gracious personalized service, refined elegance and a touch of glamour. This merger of legacies promises an afternoon tea experience like no other.

The launch brought together an esteemed guest list of Swarovski executives, media representatives, influencers, Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs), and the country's beloved celebrities.

Echoing his sentiments, Raffles Makati Director of Sales & Marketing Eugene Tamesis commented on the delectable offerings. "The Swarovski Afternoon Tea is not just about luxury, but a culinary journey. Our carefully crafted menu mirrors the precision and beauty that Swarovski stands for.”

The event further sparkled with a Swarovski jewels activity that captivated attendees, followed by an enlightening presentation from Raffles Makati’s Executive Chef, Bela Rieck, who detailed the unique components of the afternoon tea. Among the many delicacies showcased were the green mango tart with sea grapes, seared tuna with mango cilantro salsa for the culinary art tier, and desserts like the crystal glazed reinvented raspberry, white wine coconut spritzer, and a mesmerizing crystal-inspired praline.
