What’s on offer? This brunch dubs itself a ‘drunch’ (‘drinks brunch’) and certainly lives up to its name, with friendly staff there to ensure you have a good time. There’s an average selection of à la carte dishes and a small spread of buffet favourites, but both are outstripped by the choice of Cuban mixed drinks alone (we suggest you try the cucumber or wasabi concoctions).
The venue? With moody nightclub lighting, music that gets gradually louder and a young and party-ready crowd, most guests are building up to the post-brunch ’80s pop on the dancefloor.
What sort of crowd turn out? Heels and glam gear are a must, as brunchers are dressed to the nines.
Room for improvement? It can get a little boisterous, even for the hardened bruncher.
Standout dish The sushi’s pretty good.
