July 21, 2022 (Chongqing, China) - Summer is in full swing and the sky is the limit for an explorer's culinary journey. Niccolo Chongqing is partnering with Italian luxury supercar brand Lamborghini to launch a Gentleman’s afternoon tea in The Tea Lounge from July 21 to September 30, 2022. Using the Lamborghini Huracán STO as inspiration, hotel has created a new idea for an afternoon tea, with a savoury afternoon snack and a three-course menu, offering guests a variety of choices and a perfect interpretation of the classic and trendy.
While Lamborghini has gained a cult following with supercar enthusiasts for its outstanding performance and meticulous quality, the Huracán STO model culminates in the perfect balance of technology and design. By combining first-class Italian craftsmanship with an exquisite and noble body the car offers an unparalleled driving experience. From the hotel aspect, there are breathtaking river views from the 62nd floor, the elegantly designed The Tea Lounge provides guests with the perfect setting for a stylish afternoon tea, and the ideal place to take a break from shopping with friends. The hotel's F&B team has taken the Huracán STO’s hexagonal shape and its bold blue and orange design to create a limited three-course Gentleman’s afternoon tea with high quality ingredients within a stylish and luxurious dining environment. It is sure to provide guests with the perfect culinary setting and an outstanding flavour to last a lifetime.
Niccolo Chongqing X Lamborghini Afternoon Tea

Rounding out the menu are three exquisite handmade savoury desserts served with a sense of ritual, forming the prologue of high-altitude cuisine.
2nd Course Hot Canapés — The pizza is cleverly integrated into the afternoon tea, with the Australian strip, Iberian ham, tuna and other fine ingredients to make a savoury dessert full of flavour, with a mellow mini cheeseburger to create pure Italian style.
3rd Course Desserts — The classic cigar-shaped chocolates with the Lamborghini logo lend the afternoon tea a different kind of exclusivity and fun, and the sweet and sour mousse cake and melt-in-your-mouth ice cream round off the Italian feast.
