The Bluebird is a landmark on King’s Road with an enterprising collection of spaces. From the quaint street café and cobbled courtyard to the polished restaurant and bar up on the first floor, this multi-faced venue has always been on West Londoner’s radar. This summer, its terrace is the place ‘to be and be seen’, transforming into a quintessentially British Garden woven with trailing summer flowers and lush greenery for a SW3 staycation.
Brunch has stapled itself as a weekend phenomenon, and Bluebird Chelsea offers one of the most brilliantly British. A restaurant that embodies each of the four seasons, the King’s Road drinking and dining destination is celebrating the welcomed warmer summer months in true quintessential style. This year, this includes partnering up with Fever-Tree to bring all the highlights of summer to its popular restaurant, bar and terrace with their ‘Spritz Brunch’.
The new Fever-Tree spritz range epitomises everything we love so much about the British summertime. At £14 each and created by Bluebird Chelsea’s Bar Manager, these special Spritzes are abundant with colour and feature fun flavour combinations such as Bergamot & Blood Orange Spritz and White Grape & Apricot Garden Spritz to sip throughout the city’s most fun season.
To coincide with these refreshing summer cocktails, this vibrant new Spritz collection has also allowed the restaurant to shake up their weekend brunch food menu to complete the Spritz Brunch.
A whole new line-up of new dishes has stepped into the limelight to enjoy as each weekend rolls in. Giving both Bluebird regulars and newcomers a reason to visit the Spritz Brunch that is available on Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 3.15pm. From brunch classics (avocado on sourdough toast with poached eggs) ranging through to regular lunchtime specials (lobster spaghetti), the Spritz Brunch is an inclusive menu that offers something for everyone.
My brunch go-to, I chose the nothing less than indulgent eggs benedict, which was lathered in rich hollandaise sauce. My guests, meanwhile, both seafood lovers choose Bluebird’s towering seafood platter for two featuring a carousel of fresh oysters, pink salmon tartare and cured salmon.
Other suitably opulent options on this brunch menu include the Bluebird bone marrow beef burger topped with cheddar, caramelized onions, house dressing and chips, or for a taste of Asia: the crispy duck salad with bok choi and a Thai style chilli jam dressing. For something sweet are the Brooklyn praline pancakes with smoky bacon and maple syrup or French toast with streaky bacon, wild blueberries and whipped crème fraîche, each offering a sweet vs savoury taste from the States.
This summer, Bluebird Chelsea also offers an elegant alternative to the regular sports bar. From the Euro’s to Wimbledon, the Rugby and the Olympics: summer 2021 is the ultimate season of sport. To ensure sports fans don’t miss out, Bluebird have exclusively installed a big screen on their terrace from Friday 11th June for the launch of the Euros right up until Sunday 8th August for the Olympics final. Each week the terrace will draw in spectators where they will be broadcasting key games on the terrace amongst Bluebird’s elegant and comfortable surroundings.
