This restaurant is taking boozy brunching to new heights.
We know they say the party season is full of glitter, glamour and many a sequin, but a luxurious brunch taking place throughout December is about to amp up the sparkle factor even further.
Searcys at The Gherkin is known for its incredible views across the city, sitting on the 40th floor of the famous glass building, and with its own dedicated champagne bar, we can’t think of a better place to sip some bubbles when we’re feeling fancy.
But if the venue wasn’t inviting enough, the clever team over there have created a Diamond and Dom Perignon brunch to run every Sunday in December to add some real sparkle to your Christmas.
Taking place on the 2, 9, 16 and 23 December in the Iris Bar, guests can enjoy a four course meal consisting of pastries and artisan breads, butters and preserves, smorgasbords with homemade ricotta, smoked salmon, super-seeded bread, pesto and pumpkin seeds.
There’ll also be mains of bavette steak, traditional eggs benedict, Florentine or royal which will be topped with sustainable, organic Kasperskian caviar from Switzerland. Oh, and desserts include freshly made waffles with fruit compote, or a chocolate ganache tart with malt ice cream and Guinness gel. Now, that’s what we call a brunch.
But let’s move on to the important bit. You know how much we love a bottomless brunch, so we were very excited to hear that every brunch comes with a glass of luxury champagne Dom Pérignon Vintage Blanc 2009, but that’s not it.
In the bottom of every single glass will be a single sparkling stone, and for one lucky drinker, that stone will be a real diamond.
How will we know who’s got the sparkler though, we hear you ask? Well, to ramp up the interactive factor, once guests have finished their Champagne, gemstone inspectors from Embee Diamond Reception will be on hand to inspect the stones and reveal the winner.
We can’t think of a much better Christmas present than a £2000 diamond bathed in Champagne, can you?
Tickets for the event are £120, which isn’t too bad when you consider you could get a diamond out of it. And never the less, it’s a lovely way to welcome in Christmas.
You can start booking tickets now, and we imagine it will get full pretty quick!
