Garage Brunch

Who said you should wait till the sun goes down to get the party started? Coming to a secret Essex location this spring, ticket holders can expect an unforgettable daytime bash complete with bottomless cocktails, mouth-watering food and plenty of on your feet entertainment.

Après Bar Hull

One of the best bars in Essex, The Spritz Social is an unmissable summer pop-up in Chelmsford. Offering so much more than just alfresco sipping, this place has a wide array of signature sips and droolworthy burgers, which can be enjoyed in a haven for Instagram snapping.


Luxe Garage Brunch and 2 other offers

Yuce's is a lush bar and restaurant in Harlow where delicious Mediterranean cuisine and your favourite cocktails collide. Spread over two floors, with a leafy backdrop, dazzling chandeliers and contemporary interiors, upstairs features Zoen Essex which is an exclusive lounge and members bar. Whether you're looking for a couple of refreshing tipples or a refreshing beer, this stylish haunt has you covered. 

Harry's Bar

Much like its unpretentious name, Harry's  is a one of the most laid-back bars in Essex. Head down for an afternoon of al fresco fraternising in Harry's chilled-out outdoor area. With a glass of wine in hand, intermingle with an after-work crowd and let loose after a long week. Harry's '25 and over' policy (for those simply here to drink) brings about a noticeably mature and pleasant ambience. 


One of the hottest bars in Essex, Faces is an unmissable boozy brunch destination. A bar, restaurant and club space rolled up into one, the recently-renovated venue will cater to all your drinking and dining needs with a soundtrack of live DJs to get you grooving afterwards.
