Most Londoners will agree, we need little persuasion when it comes to capitalising on any hot weather that comes our way. In fact, not having year-round sun has probably made us more inventive than other cities when it comes to our summer events. Consequently, we’re happy to report that this year is no exception, beginning with the happy news that the South Bank will be hosting a beachy bottomless brunch that’ll make you feel like you’re holidaying in the Med…
South Bank Beach Bottomless Brunch (SE1)
It’s the most enjoyable challenge most of us have had in a long time: eat what you like from a delectable Mediterranean-inspired brunch menu and drink as much Prosecco, beer or house cocktails as you can in two hours. All this on your very own space of the purpose-built beach that will be hitting the South Bank this year. This event is going to be ridiculously popular so make sure you get in there quickly.
‘Mrs Fogg’s Gin Brunch’ (Mr Fogg’s Maritime Club and Distillery, Liverpool Street)
If there’s one thing Mr. Fogg’s are famous for its thinking outside of the box. And now the fantastical gin specialists are serving up their very own take on the bottomless brunch with an Indian-fusion menu (accompanied by a lot of gin of course) taking place at their Maritime club every Saturday.
Pergola Olympia (W14)
It’s not that often you see Espresso martinis on a bottomless brunch menu and what better location is there to enjoy this novelty than the stunning rooftop of Pergola Olympia? You can also tipple on Bloody Marys and Prosecco, along with delicious cuisine from their renowned food vendors.
Darcie & May Green, Sheldon Square, W2
There can be no doubting the Aussies know how to do a good bottomless brunch and their contribution to the London scene definitely won’t disappoint. Not only does it take place on a mesmerisingly colourful barge on the Grand Union Canal, but it is also open to be enjoyed every day.
Megan’s (Battersea/Balham/Clapham/Parsons Green/Kings Road)
If you’re a fan of a food pic then Megan’s is the bottomless brunch for you, where the food is as delightfully colourful as the décor. Also, given their SW postcodes you could find yourself dining next to your favourite Made in Chelsea star.
