Time Out says

Feel good while you feast on a ten-course vegan and gluten-free rooftop high tea

We don't really need an extra reason to get excited about a rooftop high tea, but at the jazzy Paramount Recreation Club, they're bringing in their second round of sunny tiered feasts that boost social engagement for health and longevity. 

Their social health program is joining forces with vegan bakery Holistic Kitchen to host a series of Sunday high teas up on their Surry Hills roof. You can partake in a ten-course snack party that won’t leave you feeling bloated or strung-out on sugar, as all the sweet creations and savoury numbers (which will come out of the Rec Club Kiosk) will be totally gluten-free, vegan and contain no refined sugar. They promise it’s still going to be delicious, though.

Like last year’s spring party, you can BYO Champagne or prosecco (corkage will come at a small fee) and there’ll be unlimited tea from Byron-based Mayde Tea. An exciting new addition is the pre-order list of natural, organic, and biodynamic wines from Drnks. With your wellbeing in mind, the menu will consist of treats like raw coconut lamingtons, blueberry lemon slice and plant-based meringue, plus veg-heavy savouries from the club kitchen.

Tickets to this lofty two-hour tea will set you back $60 per person, and you'll need at least three friends to join you to book a table.
