With tropical holidays looking unlikely this year, and summer gradually winding down, you really do need a backup plan. So, instead of dreaming about beachside resorts you can’t afford to visit, escape to your nearest Cottons for rum punch and Caribbean vibes. It’s the staycation you deserve – although you might want to leave your bikinis at home for this one… Tickets can be found here!
The food will whisk you away to warmer climes, with traditional Caribbean dishes and tropical twists on brunch favourites. Try the loaded flatbread with buttermilk fried chicken, caramelised onions and peppers, topped with cheddar cheese and ranch dressing, or the calaloo and green beans Florentine, which comes with toasted muffins and jerk hollandaise.
This is London we’re talking about, so of course there’s booze involved. Your food will be paired with two hours of bottomless rum punch, prosecco or mimosas, depending what kind of mood you’re in. And there’ll also be an awesome reggae soundtrack to help keep up the pretence that you are in fact in the Bahamas.
Cottons’ tropical brunch takes place every Saturday and Sunday at their Camden, Vauxhall, Notting Hill and Shoreditch branches – and it’s great value at just £27.50. Much cheaper than a flight to Barbados!
