February’s end-of-the-month disco brunch, and first of the party series, on Saturday 26th, is a nod to New York City’s glamorous brunch party scene, with a vogue performance from The Ghetto Collective, music from DJs Danielle Moore, Rebecca Never Becky and a live trumpet plus a special host.

DSW disco brunch party is hosted at the restaurant every Saturday – with a selection from the menu available to order from the lounge. And on the last Saturday of every month, the warehouse will host an elevated themed brunch party with special entertainment. The brunch menu is available from 11am until 4pm, priced at £40 per person, which includes bottomless Cosmopolitan or New York Sours, and a delicious brunch dish. The disco ambience will continue into the night, on Saturdays, with DJs playing all evening in the lounge.
