Often thought of as the ‘boozy spawn of breakfast and lunch’, brunch is a meal popularised by Americans, and bottomless brunch has seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the past decade in the UK.
In short, bottomless brunch is a meal to be enjoyed during the late morning or afternoon that is often accompanied by bottomless drinks for a limited time period, hence the name.
From piles of pancakes to indulgent street food to endless prosecco and cocktails, you might be wondering what bottomless brunch entails before you sign yourself up.
The truth is, bottomless brunch has evolved over the years, making it more difficult to know what to expect from the experience if you’ve never been before, particularly as businesses are continuously looking to evolve their offerings.
What’s included in bottomless brunch can vary depending on where you go, as each business has its own spin on bottomless brunch. This is largely part of the fun.
That said, offerings for bottomless brunch often include, but are not limited to:
- Unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages
- Delicious food
- Quirky games
- Group bookings
1. Unlimited Alcoholic & Non-Alcoholic Beverages
Bottomless brunch owes its name to unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, which is the first offering you can expect.
From cocktails to mocktails, you will typically have a limited time period where you can drink to your heart’s content at bottomless brunch.
That said, you should read the small print before making a booking, as some establishments have some limitations, from limited drinks menus to prohibiting rules, so it’s important to do your research beforehand.
At Urban Food Fest, our Shoreditch Fiesta Bottomless Brunch includes 2 hours of unlimited bottomless Italian prosecco and delicious cocktails served straight to your table by our wonderful servers.
The cocktails include all the cocktails on our menu that day, such as gin and tonic, rum, lemon and lime, and vodka and passion fruit to name just a few of our beverages.
Additionally, we serve unlimited ice cold Italian Prosecco if you’d prefer to enjoy some bubbles and we also provide you with a welcome drink on arrival from 12:30 pm to 1.00 pm to ensure your brunch starts with a bang.
After your 2-hour brunch slot, your ticket will also entitle you to discounted drinks from our bar so you can keep the fun going all day should you wish to.
Another important bottomless brunch offering is entertainment, particularly as most bottomless brunches are a multiple-hour affair.
Entertainment provides you with some fun whilst you settle in and wait for your delicious food to be cooked, and often makes the experience, so it shouldn’t be underestimated.
More importantly, considering that there are ‘over 1,000 bottomless brunch restaurants in the UK’, unique entertainment can help set certain bottomless brunch events apart from the rest when you’re trying to find the right event for you.
For instance, you can tell when a business genuinely cares about the customer experience when they provide entertainment at their bottomless brunch event, as it can be so much more than a meal accompanied by a few drinks.
From DJs to performers, entertainment is important to bring fun vibes and keep the energy flowing all day.
3. Delicious Food
It wouldn’t be brunch without delicious food, so this is one of the most important offerings of a bottomless brunch.
Aside from the brunch classics you’d expect, it’s good to opt for a bottomless brunch menu that has a wide range of options and that accounts for multiple dietary requirements, as this will ensure that it caters for everyone in your group.
At Urban Food Fest, our trained street food chefs are on hand to deliver you a range of delicious global dishes from our gourmet street food trucks and stalls at our Shoreditch Fiesta Bottomless Brunch event.
If you’re interested in attending our Shoreditch Fiesta Bottomless Brunch, it begins on Saturday 29th April and you can purchase your tickets from Design My Night or from Event Brite at your convenience.
4. Quirky Games
Another offering to look for at bottomless brunch is quirky games, as they’re not only enjoyable but also provide another form of entertainment to make any bottomless brunch a memorable experience.
Many bottomless brunches take place in venues that are centred around fun games, such as darts or ping pong, whilst others offer quirky games as an extra.
From indoor to outdoor games, such as giant Jenga and Connect Four to skittles, games are great to bring out a friendly competitive energy amongst friends.
They’re also highly entertaining to keep the fun going during your bottomless brunch slot regardless of whether you’re drinking mocktails or cocktails, so no one ever feels left out.
5. Group Bookings
Last, but not least, an offering you should look out for at bottomless brunch is group bookings.
A bottomless brunch is a sociable event that is great for catching up with friends, family, or can even be an event to celebrate a special occasion, and you don’t want to be limited by the number of people that you can bring.
At Urban Food Fest, we recognise how hard it can be to find large group bookings on a weekend, particularly in large cities such as London.
From stag and hen dos to work get-togethers to birthdays with friends, we can accommodate group bookings for up to 50 people.
For your convenience, you won’t even need to book together, just make sure that you elect a group organiser and put their name in the notes. This way, we’ll ensure that you’re all sitting together.
We hope that this article has provided you with a better understanding of what’s included in bottomless brunch.
