Easter weekend is a cracking time to be in London, the arrival of the coveted four-day weekend plays host to a multitude of staycation activities. Here’s a peek at some of the most festive (and delicious) celebrations.
Bluebird Chelsea is a fashionable institution, welcoming the chicest of Londoners with cocktails and brunch. On Easter Sunday, kiddies from across the land will be invited to run wild in the courtyard and dig beneath the perfectly manicured Bluebird shrubs and discover hidden chocolate eggs. The mature crowd can watch from a safe distance at the bar with one of their Easter themed limited edition cocktails. Needless to say this is an in-demand event so be quick and make a rezzy. 350 King’s Rd, London SW3 5UU
The vintage tube themed bar is taking Easter back to the 1940’s and if you’re quick enough with that phone call you may be invited. At Cahoots you can expect the usual boisterous good ol’ boy atmosphere with an added layer of Easter-themed fun. Hot cross buns, daffodils, Easter eggs and many more weekend surprises to come. 13 Kingly Court, Carnaby, London W1B 5PG
Step behind the scenes into the Corrigan’s Mayfair kitchen and work side-by-side with some of London’s finest chefs to create your Easter lunch feast. The masterclass will culminate with a four course meal with wine pairing for each course. Top off your meal with your very own DIY chocolate egg, perfect sofa snacking for later. After lunch leave Corrigan’s with a self-satisfied smile and a goody bag filled with Easter treats. Where do we sign up? 28 Upper Grosvenor Street, London, W1K 7EH
Archer Street cocktail bar is bringing the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party alive once again this Easter…except they’re substituting the tea for cocktails. Expect the staff to fuel your weekend with singing, dancing and a whole lot of entertainment. A uniquely curated Easter cocktail menu will be on offer and the festivities are taking place for the entire (four day) weekend. Follow us down the rabbit hole. 3-4 Archer Street, Soho, London W1D 7AP
Pop Brixton has pulled out all the stops. This Easter, the wacky carnivalesque egg hunt is determined to entertain the pants off you. Magicians, street performers and face painting included. Adults not excluded. Night owls are welcome to join the fun and dance to the beats of Midnight Riot Records. Feel free to overindulge knowing you’ll be sleeping in on Monday morning. Bliss.
