This year The London EDITION hotel will be celebrating Pride with a pre-parade brunch in its iconic Lobby Bar.
- The London EDITION, 10 Berners Street, London, W1T 3NP
The London EDITION invites you to celebrate Pride with British comedian and drag queen Jonny Woo together with acclaimed DJ Aimee Phillips and friends in the hotel’s vibrant lobby.
A special Veuve Cliquot based cocktail, Pride No Prejudice, will be available at the pre-parade kiki alongside complimentary brunch canapés including mini smoked salmon bagels and rainbow fruit sticks.
To mark the occasion, renowned design consultancy PATTERNITY has teamed up with The London EDITION to create a site-specific installation. From the 3rd – 9th July, guests will enter the hotel through a rainbow arc on which is written the official phrase of Pride LOVE HAPPENS HERE. Drawing inspiration from the stripes of the Pride flag as well as the artist Jim Lambie, the installation is a joyous affirmation of inclusivity.
Everyone is welcome to enter through the rainbow installation to the lobby where Jonny Woo will host the Pride parade warm-up with Aimee Phillips DJ-ing to get the party spirit started. The hotel’s Punch Room bar have created an especially mixed cocktail for the occasion called Pride No Prejudice consisting of Veuve Clicquot Brut, Plymouth Gin, Select Aperitivo, lemon juice, strawberry and almond syrup, which will be available from 3rd – 9th July. £2 from each cocktail sold will be donated to Stonewall, who are 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality still campaigning and lobbying for equality. The cocktails will be served with delicious complimentary brunch canapes by the hotel’s restaurant Berners Tavern; smoked salmon & cream cheese mini bagels, rainbow fruit sticks, avocado on toast with chilli flakes and mini pastries.
Brunch with Pride will start at 11am until 1pm, following which guests will make their way to the main parade impassioned to spread the message of tolerance for everyone everywhere!
