Chomping Ground's first ever #ClubBrunch

We decided to host a pop-up called #ClubBrunch on Sunday in Clapton, and the plan was killer cocktails and a strong brunch menu soundtracked by Sunday-morning-vibe live DJ sets. And, maybe we're blowing our own trumpet here, but yep, we reckon we ticked all those boxes.

From 10am in the lovely Palm2 loft space we welcomed about 40 guests with a choice of mimosa or Natalie's special bloody mary, then either huevos rancheros or brioche French toast with bananas, pecans and maple syrup. And we'd pretty much sold out just two hours later - unsurprisingly, people appear to really like brunch.

We kicked off with all the Hackney Half Marathon crew speeding past our window and even welcomed one runner friend who almost collapsed after racing, only to speed over to our party and enjoy a restorative bloody mary. Now that's dedication to brunch.

Special thanks to all who helped make it happen: Natalie, Gabrielle, Jen, Ashleigh, Alex, James, Nadia, Nick, Ali and Emma at Palm2.

We'll keep you posted about the next #ClubBrunch later this summer - trust us, your hangover will thank you.
