We’ve found some of the best deals in London for a totally acceptable boozy brunch treat.
Bottomless brunch is great because a) it has a fab name b) you can get rat-arsed at 11 o’clock in the morning and nobody bats an eyelid. There’s nothing quite like saying ‘bottoms up’ and knowing that you can continue to say it until it becomes ‘bosshomsup’. We’ve included a range of prices (because we’re thoughtful like that) but we warn you there are no bottomless brunches worth risking your health for (principally, your liver) for under £10 so, funnily enough, we didn’t include those. Again, you’re welcome.
1. Karaoke brunch at Lucky Voice (Islington)
This bottomless brunch is extra special for two reasons: the first being it includes bottomless cocktails, which is a rare occurrence, the second being it includes karaoke. There’s no bog standard budget prosecco for you here – expect to spend your slot sipping Sex on the Beach, Aperol Spritz, and Elderflower Gin Fizz while you practice your Whitney impression in the karaoke booth. This brunch/karaoke extravaganza costs £30 and is available 12pm to 3pm every Saturday. Get your tickets here.
173-174 Upper St, Islington, N1 1RG
2. Quaglino’s (Mayfair)
Reviewed by Lily Frohlich
Quaglino’s Saturday Q Brunch features tunes from a resident DJ while you munch, in a location that can’t be beaten. The star of this brunch is the setting – the art deco opulence makes it the perfect place for a special occasion. The menu includes a selection of classic breakfast options as well as a few slightly less traditional lunch choices. That’s why they call it brunch, after all. Their service is impeccable, so don’t worry about sitting around waiting to be topped up. We never did find the bottom of that prosecco… The brunch costs £29 for three courses plus £20 for unlimited bubbles and is available 11.30am to 2.30pm every Saturday.
16 Bury St, St. James’s, SW1Y 6AJ
3. Ballie Ballerson (Shoreditch)
This event will take you back to the days when your mates held the party of the year at the ‘soft play’ centre, whilst simultaneously reminding you why it’s great to be an adult with all the pizza you can eat and all the prosecco you can drink. Ballie Ballerson boasts a ball pit filled with 250,000 clear balls all lit by a whopping 10,000 LED strong dancefloor. We reckon this could be the perfect environment for a fun reunion with your school chums – the unlimited supply of booze is bound to alleviate any initial awkwardness, after all. Tickets for a two hour slot cost £40 per person and the brunch runs every Saturday from 2pm to 4pm. Get your tickets here.

4. HotBox (Whitechapel)
Reviewed by Georgie Hoole
HotBox is a pretty hot spot for a boozy brunch. Bacon and Bloody Marys, pancakes and prosecco, meat and mimosas — they have it all, and they do it oh-so well. As you make your way down the list of Bloody Marys, you’ll find a few surprises; Pork Jus, whiskey, jalapeños… they’re certainly an acquired taste. But for those of you who can’t handle the heat (or the meat), there’s plenty of prosecco and mimosas to go round. As for the food, you really can’t go wrong. There’s burgers, tacos, waffles, ribs… you name it. You’ll come out of there feeling happily stuffed and suitably tipsy. That’s a promise. Brunch is available Tuesday to Sunday from 11.30am to 2.30pm and costs £25 for bottomless alcohol, plus food costs.
46-48 Commercial St, E1 6LT
5. Aster (Victoria)
Reviewed by Lily Frohlich
When you think of London Victoria what springs to mind? The coach station… the musical Wicked… we’re out. Well, the good news is, we’ve found an actual reason to visit Victoria in the form of the stunning Nordic restaurant, Aster, which opened earlier this year. The even better news is they’re offering a beautifully thought out bottomless brunch, to inject a little hygge into your life.
It’s two courses for £21 or three for £26 and you can add unlimited bubbles for an extra £17. The menu even features three different takes on the classic Eggs Benedict. Three. We particularly recommend the Eggs Victoria – lobster on seeded sourdough with a truffle hollandaise – because how often do you get to eat lobster for breakfast? Available Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 4pm.
150 Victoria Street, SW1E 5LB
6. Bingo brunch at The Honour Oak Pub (Forest Hill)
If you live in south London and fancy enjoying a bit of light entertainment alongside your limitless supply of alcohol, you’ve come to the right place. This one offers you bottomless Bloody Marys or bottomless mimosas, as well as unlimited tea, coffee, toast and jam with your brunch – so you won’t be leaving hungry (or thirsty, that’s for sure). Plus there’s bingo (of course), so you’ll be able to indulge your competitive side without resorting to a drinking competition. It’s available every Saturday from 12pm to 3pm and you can get your tickets here.
1 St German’s Rd, Forest Hill, SE23 1RH
7. All Star Lanes
Reviewed by Georgie Hoole
Mornings are so often associated with Bloody Marys and mimosas (and coffee of course, but we’re talking brunch here), but who says you can’t have a good old beer at 11am? Exec chef Ashley Clarke and award-winning writer Melissa Cole thought that brunch was missing a little bit of hop, so they created London’s first bottomless craft beer brunch. The All Star line up of beers (get it?) includes beverages from the likes of Beavertown Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery and Steven’s Point Brewery.
The beers match a menu of American brunch favourites, including buttermilk fried chicken and treacle-cured bacon on waffles, a delicious salt beef hash, and a gourmet sausage and egg McMuffin (don’t panic Instagram, they didn’t forget the avocado and poached eggs on toast). And hey, what’s a better way to end a meal than a bit of boozy bowling? Their bottomless offer costs £19, plus food costs. For more specific information on days and times check out their website.
8. Cabana (Brixton)
Reviewed by Georgie Hoole
Join in the Brazilian spirit with Cabana’s boozy bottomless brunch. They’ve got tropical Bellinis and Bloody Marias (Mary’s latino cousin), and lots of Brazilian breakfast classics. The “Rabanadas” (Brazil’s answer to French toast) is tasty as hell and the Pão de Queijo are cheesy balls of deliciousness (and they’re gluten free, so err… healthy, right?). It also seems that no brunch is complete without avocado and poached egg on toast, and Cabana’s version is ridiculously good. Go ahead and try it all, we promise you won’t be disappointed. At least until your two hours are up… Available every Saturday and Sunday 11am to 4pm for £14.95 plus food costs.
B201 – 207 Ferndale Rd, Brixton, SW9 8BE
9. Plateau (Canary Wharf)
Reviewed by Lucie Turner
Situated in Canary Wharf – so it goes without saying to only turn up in your smart trainers – this spacious restaurant looks out over some pretty cool views. Fill your boots with their 3-course meal for £30 (or two courses for £25) while you enjoy ‘free flowing’ prosecco for an added £15. Go forth readers, and let it flow as freely as the Kardashians hair extensions. Available only on Saturdays from 12 pm until 3.30 pm.
4th Floor, Canada Place, E14 5ER
10. Gaucho (Smithfield)
A combination of electro beats and delicious eats, the bottomless brunch at Gaucho is like no other. The menu is full of fantastic dishes, including steak and eggs, baked chorizo, fried provoleta, and blueberry pancakes. Heads up: make sure you arrive with an empty stomach, because you can order as much food as you like, as often as you like! Choose from the classic Bloody Mary, sparkling wine or an Aperol Spritz to wash it all down with (or all of them of course – it is bottomless after all)! Or you can opt for a healthy juice if you’re that way inclined. The brunch is available every Saturday from 11am to 4pm and costs £49.95 per person for all food and drink or you can upgrade to the premium brunch for £55 per person.
