Sunday Hangover Brunch, Circus, Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Bubbly brunches sure have become a fashionable way to spend, or end, a Sunday in Kuala Lumpur. With free flow champagne, sake, beer, cocktails, wine and Prosecco spilling around the city, the swirling stream of options makes it difficult to pick one from the cascade. Circus, though, in Pavilion, has been stirring up the competition and perhaps provided the zenith to the scene with the introduction of its Sunday Hangover Brunch inclusive of… (drum roll) free flow Dom Pérignon!
A drop of this luscious (I hear) liquid is yet to pass these lips, but for those with the means and the moolah, this vintage-only Champagne is thought to be the bee’s knees (or the grape’s vine?) Anyway, one bottle of this, for-the-privileged bubbles, is listed on most wine menus around KL for about RM900 per bottle. Given four hours of drinking time, I’m sure there are those out there who are more than capable of getting value for money at a free flow brunch.
Less costly packages come in the form of bottomless glasses of Moet & Chandon, cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages. As a sideline, an international buffet borders the bar so that you might pretend you’re there for lunch, rather than imbibement alone. Highlights include fresh quality seafood, a live risotto station, flavourful tender roast and a plated selection of desserts from the glass display.
Besides the free flow bubbles giving individual sparkle to Circus’ Sunday Hangover Brunch, the ambience too is in a class of its own. An urban edge is slathered across the walls, tabletops and ceiling in the form of paintings combining street art and graffiti. A resident DJ spins non-commercial chill music and handsome bartenders blend, shake and stir classic and creative cocktails.
The international buffet with free flow soft drinks and juices is priced at RM88++. Free flow Moet & Chandon, selected cocktails and cider will set you back RM228++. For the ultimate indulgence though, champagne rivers of Dom Pérignon and cocktails (but seriously who’s going to order a cocktail!), has the price tag of… take a deep breathe… RM868++. The buffet runs every Sunday from 12noon until 4pm.
Reason to visit: funky modern ambience, resident DJ playing strictly non-commercial chill music, urban artistic ambience
