Step into the elegance of the past in the L.S. Ayres Tea Room™. Introduced to downtown Indianapolis in 1905, the tea room at the L.S. Ayres department store was an endearing favorite for several generations of Hoosiers. A re-creation of the original, the museum’s tea room features reproductions of wall coverings, carpet, draperies and chandeliers as well as original furniture from the restaurant. Artifacts from the original tea room, such as tea pots and silverware, as well as photographs of the tea room from the past are on display.
The L.S. Ayres Tea Room is ideal for bridal or baby showers, board meetings, luncheons, holiday parties or high tea experiences. Favorites such as Chicken Velvet Soup and Chicken Pot Pie can be included on your event’s menu.
