If the thought of Valentine’s Day makes your stomach churn, then there are alternatives to staying indoors and revelling in singledom alone.
There is a growing trend of Anti-Valentine’s Day parties, where people who are not in the mood for hearts, kisses and general V-Day romance, can come together to drink, be merry and laugh about previous hideous Valentine’s Day gifts.
So, to denounce Valentine’s Day this year, new restaurant, bar and live music venue 100 Wardour St will be hosting an Anti-Valentine’s Brunch on Saturday 13 February. Gone are the pink balloons, and instead black hearts emblazoned with ‘Romance is Dead’ will adorn the space. The DJ is guaranteed to be spinning anything but love songs.
Guests will enjoy three courses for £30 from a menu devised by executive chef Liam Smith-Laing. Guests can revel in unlimited Bloody Marys or Bloody (blood orange) Mimosas for an additional £15.
The brunch menu includes eggs cooked to your liking and served with a variety of sides, or a selection of small tapas-style plates including grilled chorizo with chestnut honey and crispy squid with chilli and lime. Main courses include succulent coal-fired garlic baby chicken, Galician beef cheeseburger and fresh Cassarecce pasta taking centre stage. And forget romantic sharing desserts – guests can finish their meal with a choice of pancakes with blueberry compote, decadent chocolate ganache crunch or French toast.
