If you ever need an excuse to start boozing before lunch, the bottomless brunch is it.
London’s newest craze combines tasty bites with unlimited drinks (alcoholic, of course). You’ll have an hour or two to drink as much as you can stomach for a set price. With a bottomless brunch, drinking at 10am isn’t just tolerated – it’s expected!
So where are these boozy havens that serve Bloody Marys with breakfast as standard? Here’s our rundown of the best bottomless brunches in London.
BabaBoom doesn’t believe it’s necessary to line your stomach before you start filling it with alcohol. On Saturdays and Sundays from 10am, you can pay just £15 for an hour of unlimited frozen margaritas. First comes coffee, and second comes the drinks. Then and only then can you munch down a ‘good morning’ kebab spruced up with glazed bacon. Food items are priced individually.
HIPHOP Brunch London
Want to kick your all-day session off with a bang? Head to HIP-HOP Brunch London, which plays tracks from the biggest names in hip-hop as you guzzle as many cocktails as you can within an hour. While you’re working on your morning buzz, you can enjoy a three-course, southern-inspired meal. Beats, booze and bites – does it get any better?
Aster Restaurant proves that the bottomless brunch can be classy. Its menu is a fusion of Nordic and French-inspired delights. But what we really like about this establishment is its bubbly deal. From 11am on Saturdays and Sundays, you can enjoy a two-hour champagne binge and a three-course meal for less than £45. Spend an extra fiver, and you can upgrade your meal to a 42-day aged ribeye steak.
If you’d rather drink a pint (or two!) than sup a glass of bubbly, head to Brigadiers. On Sundays between noon and 6pm, you can feast on a three-course Indian meal and gulp down as much beer as you can in two hours – all for under £50. If you want to add a touch of sophistication to your morning session, you can swap the lager for prosecco or Buck’s fizz.
At Bad Egg, £35 buys you two hours of unlimited alcohol and three American-style dishes. The bottomless drinks menu includes mimosas, prosecco, frozen slushies and Corona. If you need a hangover cure that packs one hell of a punch, try the spicy gochujang, Bloody Mary. You’ll be back ‘on it’ within seconds.
Bloody Marys, Bellini cocktails and bubblies are on the weekend bottomless menu at BungaTINI. Located in Covent Garden, BungaTINI is an Italian restaurant that serves to-die-for pizzas. Despite its traditional décor, Bungatini is a binger’s paradise. Down as many drinks as you like in two hours and eat a three-course meal for as little as £35 at our favourite pizzeria in the City.
Darcie and May Green
Too impatient to wait until the weekend for a full day of drinking? Darcie and May Green have you covered. Every day from 10am, you can enjoy a two-hour session of bottomless mimosas or prosecco for under £40. That price includes two Aussie-inspired dishes.
And if you’d like to get a taste of British etiquette, why not try a traditional afternoon tea during your visit? You can even choose the Champagne option!
