14 Of The Best Boozy Brunches

By Phil Clarke and Lottie Hulme |
17th January 2019

Bottomless: unless you’re buying a boat or you’re a colorectal surgeon, one of the sweetest words to hear. The endless possibility of a brunch with unlimited alcohol. Free-flowing bubbles to accompany a delicious meal, Aprol Spritzes like spritz is about to be banned. Bottomless is sweet to the ear and even more so to the mouth. So without further ado (because unlike everything else on this page, my time is not bottomless) are our fave bottomless brunches.

Duo

Duo

Thrown in some fizz at a brunch and we’re all over it, especially when pancakes and prosecco are uttered in the same sentence. Duo in Camden puts on a brunch that does just what it says on the tin; layers and layers of pancakes lathered in syrup accompanied by bottomless prosecco. What’s more there’ll be beats whilst you eat so you never know, you may just turn your brunch into going “out, out”!

Carte Blanche

Carte Blanche

If carte blanche sort of means ‘do what you want’ (rather than white map) then the new brunch at Hackney’s Carte Blanche really is an invitation to indulge. Which is always what I want. The restaurant, a French and American crossover, is launching their bottomless weekend brunch promising to either cure or cause a hangover. Expect US comfort food (mac’n’cheese, tacos, the works) and alcohol of course.

Darcie & May Green

Darcie & May Green

When two funky coloured barges housing Darcie & May Green, designed by legendary British pop artist, Peter Blake are involved in a brunch you can’t go far wrong! Nestled up on the bank by Paddington station, the barges Antipodean-inspired menu has been quite the talk of the town for a while now. Guests can choose from brunch offerings such as banana bread, smashed avocado on charcoal or the ‘fancy bacon roll’ which you’ll just have to sample for yourselves to find out what this entails…

London Shuffle Club

London Shuffle Club

No, we’re not onboard a transatlantic ocean liner, but instead we’re in Shoreditch (where else?) where this boat borne game has somehow transferred to a popular bar and restaurant. And they do bottomless brunches, as you know because we’ve already done four of these. The brunch at London Shuffle Club, Shuffle Brunch, includes two hours of bottomless beer, prosecco and pizza. So shuffle over East next time you’re in town.

Las Banderas

Las Banderas

It’s sexy, it’s sumptuous, it’s Spanish and it’s a a jolly good brunch. Soho’s Las Banderas boast a brunch filled with tapas-inspired dishes such as patatas bravas and a fried egg, or pancakes with Jamon Iberico, maple syrup, strawberries and sugar-coated walnuts. Plus, in true Spanish form, delve into drink offerings including Bloody Marys, Sangria or Cava. Whether it’s the food or the drink that does it, you’ll be rolling down the street afterwards either way! ¡Arriba!

Alphabet

Alphabet

Bottomless brunch at Islington’s Alphabet is as easy as A,B,C, although by the time you get to X,Y,Z you may be slurring your letters thanks to bottomless cocktails. The Upper Street joint serves a pretty mean breakfast, including their Mediterranean inspired full-English (yes, this is possible: think merguez sausages or harissa eggs with mushroom, tomato and asparagus), but the real kicker is the range of cocktails on offer. The bottomless option gives you unlimited cocktails, prosecco and hard juices with cocktails including Breakfast Club, an orange marmalade, gin-spiked cocktail or the Allo Allo, a croissant infused (so many questions), vodka-laced drink.

Spuntino

Spuntino

They’re known for their raucous nights, but now they are venturing into the weekend mornings with a New York inspired boozy brunch. Grab a seat at the bar and get ready for two hours of bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Marys and Prosecco. To eat, there are sharing dishes of zucchini, ricotta and mint frittatas, eggplant and tomato ragu with feta and truffled egg toast and it’s all served to the sound of a cracking playlist and plenty of Spuntino charm.

Big Easy

Big Easy

Known for their laid back vibes, live music, BBQ food and hearty portions of comfort food, Big Easy is a big slice of American comfort food dotted throughout London. A place to go for a few drinks and a lot of food. Rock up at the weekend and you’ll find their boozy (note no longer bottomless) brunch, which is exactly what we did. The menu is simple, you’ve got two options: The Big Pig Gig (for all those fans of Limitless BBQ) and the Lobster Fest for those who like to be fancy come a weekend. The Big Pig Gig is a platter of slaw, BBQ beans, fries, cornbread and limitless BBQ chicken, Texas hot links and baby back ribs. The Lobster Fest is equally as decadent, you just can’t stuff yourself silly on it, which is probably quite a good thing, there’s only so much lobster mac ‘n’ cheese that you can eat. Dishes include lobster California rolls, double shrimp rolls and a whole pound of fresh lobster.

Sea Containers London

Sea Containers London

Brunch, everyone Londoner’s favourite time of the week, the meal that can cure a hangover, start a hangover and means you can technically eat twice as much as it’s two meals in one, although, not actually advisable of course. When we heard that Sea Containers had just introduced new dishes to their brunch menu, we knew of course that we had to check it out. Served between 12pm and 4pm the dishes are more on the ‘unch’ than the ‘br’ side. If you’re expecting to find poached eggs, salmon and spinach then you’re going to be disappointed, or not so disappointed depending on how you look at it, instead you can choose from the ultimate toastie with cooked ham, cheese sauce, pickled avocado; bbq pulled pork with streaky bacon and chicken and mushroom hot pot with roast potatoes. If cheese and meat don’t appeal then there is a quinoa salad with avocado foam, but it just sounds a little limp next to the slow cooked beef sandwich with fries.
