For a truly vintage afternoon tea experience, the Betty Blythe vintage tea room is a beautifully decorated space with gorgeous china tea pots, roses and vintage furniture. A lovely surprise is the dresser full of vintage clothing and accessories that patrons can try on and wear as you enjoy the scrumptious breakfast treats, cakes and tea.
Betty Blythe is one of Hollywood’s earliest sex symbols. A voluptuous brunette, Betty Blythe was among the first American movie stars to do nude scenes and her acting ability often took a back seat to her wardrobe, or lack of it. Her biggest hit was “The Queen of Sheba” (1921). She later said of it, “I had 28 costumes in that picture, and if I’d worn them all at once I couldn’t have kept warm”.
