You can’t beat a bottomless brunch, with nonstop booze and good food – it’s what Sundays are made for.

But what could make a bottomless brunch even better? Well, how about ENDLESS SANGRIA ON TAP alongside some top notch Brazilian food? Yep, that’ll do it.

And Manchester’s very own KBOM Bar & Kitchen is doing just that, launching their ‘Domingo sem Fundo‘ – which roughly translates as ‘Bottomless Sundays’ – this weekend.

Finest Media

You can choose a starter and a main alongside bottomless drinks for 90 minutes for just £22.95 per person, with a wide range of Brazilian and Portuguese dishes to pick from.

Starters include Rissois de Quejio – deep-fried cheese croquettes – or Pao de Quejio, cheesy dough balls which are the most popular street food snack over in Brazil.

You can also grab Asas Grelhadas, which is Portuguese style grilled chicken wings, marinated and cooked in either lemon and herb or KBOM’s very own Piri Piri seasoning.

Finest Media

When it comes to mains, there’s loads of authentic Brazilian and Portuguese dishes, like Bitoque – a Portuguese take on steak and eggs – and Frango Grelhado, which is half a grilled Piri Piri spiced chicken with fries.

There’s also the Burger da Onda – a steak and king prawn burger – alongside Espetada de Gambas, grilled king prawn skewers brushed with in-house made chilli and garlic seasoning.

If you want to go all out there’s the Picanha à Brasileira, Brazilian-style grilled sirloin steak served with black beans, rice and farofa seasoning.

Finest Media

When it comes to drinks you’re really spoiled for choice, with bottomless Sangria straight from the tap, Caipirinhas (a top quality Brazilian cocktail), red, white or rose wine, Super Bock or Sagres lager, or if you’re off the booze there’s soft drinks as well.

KBOM’s bottomless Sunday brunches start this Sunday, September 20th, with three slots at 12:15-13:45, 14:00-15:30 and 15:45-17:15 – you can book in here.

Bongo’s Bingo will be hosting two massive events on Blackpool beach to ends this surreal summer.

The iconic seaside resort will open its arms to two massive open-air shows this month featuring the usual Bongo’s Bingo magic and mayhem.

Bongo’s Bingo has been on an extended break this year but has recently launched a series of safe but fun events in a new outdoor format.

They debuted in Newcastle at the UK’s first socially distanced music venue, Virgin Money Unity Arena, with two sell-out events. 


Next up is Blackpool Pleasure Beach that will feature Jonny Bongo himself for two epic nights at the iconic seaside resort. 

Jonny Bongo says: “Our Outdoors shows have been simply amazing so far and it has been so good bringing people back together for some much-needed escapism.

“Doing what we do outdoors, socially-distanced and seeing everyone go wild is very special – the energy from everyone so far has been electric. We know Blackpool always likes to party and in such a jaw-dropping location it’s going to be pure class. There’s no excuse now not to join us – our two shows are going to be mega!”

Guests can expect the usual antics from the show and weird and wonderful prizes as ever! 

Friday evening has sold out but there are still tickets available to the event on Thursday 24th September.
