Alice's Tea Cup is an iconic New York tea room known for its variety of made-to-order, fanciful teas. One customer calls Alice's a magical time warp into a story book. The whimsical venue has three locations, appropriately named Chapters I, II, and III. This Groupon gets you two cocktails for $10 at the Chapter II location on the Upper East Side—the only wonderland of the three that serves alcohol and is staffed entirely by tiny rabbits.
Chapter II offers delicious, alcohol-infused concoctions you won't find anywhere else. Try a lemongrass-jasmine lemon drop (with Ketel One vodka), Alice's bellini (peach tea with flowers, champagne, and syrup), or the peppermint hotter chocolate (mint tea-infused cocoa with Jack Daniels). Check out Alice's website for the full list of mar-tea-nis, champagne cocktails, and hot drinks.
From the teas to the melt-in-your-mouth scones to the delicious cocktail concoctions to the menu written entirely in logical syllogisms, the owners of Alice's have meticulously crafted a twisted childhood fantasyland. The charming décor conjures up a fairytale world with turquoise walls trimmed in pink and countless minute details from Alice's world. You'll fully expect to see the Mad Hatter dash by, the caterpillar begin to blow mystical smoke letters, or Lewis Carroll doing a crossword puzzle.
Alice's Tea Cup is a magical slice of the delicious pound cake that is New York. Snag today's Groupon and take a friend to indulge in an adult-version of the fantasy tea party you've always imagined.
- I have sooo enjoyed eating at Alice's, the decor is entertaining; the music is always "on" in the background. It is fun watching the special food come out on the tall trays. Service can be casual when busy. but it gives us the time to enjoy. Staff is incredibly welcoming and warm. – EthelB, Citysearch
- Wow, I think i've died and gone to heaven! This is perhaps the cutest tea place i've EVER been to. It's just so incredibly inviting, warm, and cozy. I loved it so much I went twice in three days. – Rahul S., Yelp
- Living in New York, it's hard to make the choice to revisit a restaurant... Today was my second visit to Alice's and I would go back again and again and again. That's how amazing this place is. – lillie m., Yelp
