The Phoenician's Afternoon Tea

| October 6, 2016 | Calendar

The Phoenician, Arizona’s premier AAA Five Diamond resort destination, will once again showcase its celebrated Afternoon Tea experience at the Sixth Annual Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower. The award-winning culinary offering will feature The Phoenician’s traditional house-made assortment of delectable finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones (with Devonshire cream and fruit preserves), petit fours and signature teas – served with the resort’s elegant, fine china by its beloved hostesses, Wanda and Natalie.

In addition to the full tea service, guests can enjoy shaded, field-side tent seating for all of the day’s festivities at WestWorld of Scottsdale – including four polo matches; a cultural concert with performances by the Arizona Opera and Scottsdale Philharmonic, among others; and a fireworks finale. A no-host bar will be conveniently located within the tent for champagne, cocktails and additional refreshments. Individual tickets for this experience are $125; front-row tables for two are $400; second-row tables for four guests are $700; and third-row tables for eight guests are $1,500. Phoenician tent seating is limited to 150, with advance purchase required.

After a record-breaking year in 2015, the Scottsdale Polo Championships return to the Valley with the sport’s biggest stars – including the current leading American polo player, Nic Roldan – and first-time team appearances by Palm Springs, La Jolla and Palm Beach. This year also marks the inaugural Women’s Sunset Polo Match. In addition to the action on the field, attendees are invited to preview both the 2017 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and the Barrett-Jackson 2017 Collector Car Auction.
