If you’d like a side order of garage music with your brunch, London is the place to be. The company behind the popular hip hop brunches that have been running for several years has just added garage brunches to its menu, and they take place in secret locations in London.
London has always been a pioneer in UK garage, the genre of electronic music originating from England in the early 1990s. During these brunches, the music takes attendees back to the golden era of 1996-2001. It offers them an hour of bottomless cocktails, and a two-course meal alongside MC Creed’s Garage Bingo, Name that Tune, Garage Mastermind and other party games.
Two-Step Don’t-Step gives attendees the chance to show the DJ their best skank, and the organisers say that this is like musical statues, only better. The events are hosted at a secret location with an equally secret line-up only published to ticket-holders, although the first event saw Swiss from So Solid Crew heading up the proceedings.
Each event is unique in its own right, and the menu is Garage-fried chicken delivered in individual buckets, with triple-cooked fries and chipotle coleslaw. For vegetarians, mixed fried veg buckets are served up.
“We’ve worked tirelessly to bring a completely unique boozy brunch experience, mixing a much loved genre of music with great entertainment, party atmosphere and tasty food,” says Carmella Stanbury, director of Hip Hop LDN. “We can’t wait to show everyone what we have in store for this year’s events.”
