2021 has been tough, so why not reward yourself with a brilliant bottomless brunch on the beach at fab pop-up Fulham Beach.
If you’re feeling the pressure to catch up on the myriad brunches and beach trips you’ve missed whilst in lockdown, one London summer pop-up might have the answer. Fulham Beach, the sandy summer hotspot that’s set up at Fulham’s Neverland, are hosting a bottomless Brunch on the Beach this summer – and tickets have already gone on sale!
Whilst the beaches of Ibiza or the Cote d’Azur may be far off, Fulham Beach is nestled alongside the Thames. It spends chilly winters wrapped up warm as Winterland, but now that the sun is finally shining and the lockdown rules are about the relax, the beach will be open for brunch once again from April 18. The place is covered in white sand as far as the eye as see; in fact, the only things littering the shoreline on this beach are beach huts, day beds, selfie spots, and a bouncing beach bar!
Once you arrive at Fulham Bunch, you’ll be kitted out with bespoke sunnies to have you looking the part, and London’s top DJs will be spinning some ultra-chill hits to get you in a relaxing mood. A ticket to Brunch on the Beach will also get you a delightful welcome cocktail, which will rapidly make you forget you’re in Fulham, rather than Maui. You can choose between one or two hours of bottomless prosecco, beer, or passionfruit martinis, and a delicious menu of street food will be delivered to your table. Yes, after labouring away at pasta dishes for the duration of lockdown, you’ll now be treated with a plentiful deli board to start, and chicken or vegan sliders with rosemary fries for the main course.
Once you’re well fed and watered, you can spruce up the Instagram feed with a pitstop at Fulham Beach’s photo booths, wielding beach inflatables as props. If the sun shines, you can almost imagine that you’re in Mauritius – you know, if it wasn’t for the filthy waters of the Thames (can’t win ’em all). Still, the tropical spot is as fine a place as any to while away a summer’s day, especially with those bottomless martinis on the menu.
Of course, all this is only possible with your continued health and safety in mind. To maintain social distancing, there will be allocated seating throughout the venue, and all food will be brought to your table. Brunch on the Beach will run from 12-2:30pm on Sundays throughout the summer, and it should definitely put you in the mood for summer. Oh, and if it doesn’t, there’s always their Thursday Drag Bingo nights – complete with singalongs and games – to help get you dancing all summer long.
And yes, because this is the UK, everything here is weather-proofed in case the sun doesn’t arrive. It’s no basic beach, you know…
