There was a time when London didn’t brunch, a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth and we were forced to eat our lunch and breakfast separately. Then the enlightenment came and weekends were never quite the same. About to celebrate their 200th edition, Hip Hop Brunch was at the forefront of turning breakfast into a full event, with hip hop karaoke and Southern food proving to be the perfect pairing. This Mozart of the brunch world started life four years ago as several friends decided to fight back against the closing of the hip hop clubs across the city. With some of hip hop’s biggest names, three courses of food and bottomless cocktails, the event has hit on a huge success, resulting in more than 30,000 brunch attendees in the past few years.
As well as celebrating their nomination for The Best Live Event at The London Lifestyle Awards, the brand is also going all out for its 200th edition. As always, the brunch will take place in a secret location and feature a hot line-up of musical talent; previous guest performers have included Fatman Scoop, Kevyn Lyttle & Michael K Williams, so expect the unexpected. It doesn’t seem fair that London should have all the fun; along with plans to expand internationally, Hip Hop Brunch is also going national, with the first Manchester party taking place on 2nd December and further plans to take over Birmingham.
