Cattivo | Showtime Brunch
It can be hard to top.
But the people at Cattivo are certainly giving it a pretty good shot with their Showtime Brunch. It blends breakfast, lunch, booze, and a bacchanalian lineup of entertainment, and includes very few limits on any of them.
For those unfamiliar with Cattivo, allow us to introduce your new favourite Brixton-based neighbourhood Italian restaurant, cocktail bar, and brunch spot. It comes to us from the capable hands behind London Fields’ Martello Hall , and it’s set in a huge, airy space that was once part of the first purpose-built department store in the country and – prepare to seriously impress your date – the first steel frame building in the country. As such, it’s a seriously impressive space, with high ceilings, stripped-back cement columns and floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding candlelit tables and an old-fashioned bar. Read all about it HERE.
Now back to those showtime brunches: they take place each Saturday from 12pm-5pm, and involve a weekly-changing roster of immersive shows ranging from Disco, Drag Queen and Cabaret through to Latin, Swing and Gospel. You’ll get an area of your own to keep all afternoon, while staff bring you bottomless sharing plates & bottomless drinks from the Showtime Brunch menu (or mix-and-match for the table).
That menu includes the likes of ‘nduja fried chicken (with a little watermelon to cool it down); avocado, beetroot, and feta toast with pomegranate & harissa yoghurt; slow-cooked beef ragu (with freshly made pappardelle pasta); and tonnns more. The drinks include a load of prosecco cocktails (like Bellini’s, Rossini’s and Mimosa’s) as well as a Bloody Mary tray to DIY whatever you want.
The current roster of entertainment includes:
- 17th November – Indeedy Musical Bingo
- 24th November – Barnyard brunch and line dancing lessons
- 1st December – Back to the 90’S dance band
- 8th December – Cabaret
And who knows. Maybe they’ll be going bottomless too.
NOTE: Cattivo’s Showtime Brunch takes place every Saturday from 12pm-5pm. It costs £50pp for bottomless food & two hours of bottomless drink, plus entertainment. You can find out more, and book a table at their website right HERE.
