It’s a return to form for American Tea Room, the popular tea specialist from Beverly Hills that has been under some serious construction since 2015. Not that they’ve been quietly biding their time — the company has a robust online business, and spent the intervening months at their Newport Beach and Arts District tea room locations. But now they’re back in Beverly Hills, with a better-than-ever-space that’s officially open to the public once again.

Expect a pretty complete overhaul of their original location. Much like their stop in the Arts District, the focus now is on aesthetics as much as the product itself, especially as the company continues to push back against a proliferation of coffee shops moving onto their turf. That means lots of brick and gold and wooden elements, with some greenery thrown in for good measure.

The luxe 2,400 square foot space from owner David Barenholtz is now up and running along Canon Drive, keeping hours Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
