Extreme brunching

Themed brunches, hot new craze. No joke.

Food

Is brunch just a socially acceptable excuse for day drinking? Probably – but let's not dwell on that. From hardcore jungle to relaxing yoga, our breakfast expert (brexpert), Joe Svetlik, names the five Insta-friendly themed brunches that don't play by traditional rules...

01

Drum 'N' Bass Brunch

Enjoy unlimited fried chicken from Bird (plus vegetarian and vegan options) and bottomless cocktails to a soundtrack of live drum and bass DJs and MCs at the legendary London nightclub. Confirmed acts include Fabio & Grooverider, 2SHY and Doc Scott. Perfect for raving your hangover off/keeping the party going into day two.

Drag Brunch

A team of drag stars are on hand for a spinoff game called Strictly Come Drag Queen, with plenty of audience participation (fuelled, no doubt, by the unlimited Prosecco, Bucks Fizz and draft beer). The brunch buffet is provided by London institution The Breakfast Club, with as many bacon sarnies and pancakes as you can shake a glitter-flecked stiletto at.

Dr Kruger’s Olde Town Tavern, 1 Crossrail Place, London E14 5EL

03
Bingo brunch

Bingo Bonanza Bottomless Brunch

Add a competitive element to your weekend mornings with this bingo-themed brunch, complete with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys. Comedians James Hancox and Ria Lina are your bingo callers, while the food covers everything from smoked salmon, to quinoa porridge to a full English. House!

My Body is a Temple: Yoga & Sharing Brunch

If Bingo sounds a bit much, why not unwind with a yoga session in an ancient masonic temple? Once you’re done downward dogging, smash a sharing brunch in the hotel’s renowned Eastway Brasserie, with bottomless juice and smoothie options. When you've had enough of being virtuous, hit the bottomless dessert counter.

Hip hop brunch

Hip Hop Brunch LDN

If you like your hip hop with a side order of eggs, this is for you. As well as a three-course meal, there are bottomless cocktails, a magician, and hip hop karaoke, so you can live out your dreams of being Yeezy in front of an adoring crowd. But without the slavery comments, please.
