Bubbledogs: An Original Champagne Bar in London

Bubbledogs champagne bar

Some days it’s great to treat yourself to a little extravagance. A delicious meal which is so beautifully decorated it’s hard to resist snapping a picture before you tuck in, a glass of champagne served with appetizers of the finest ingredients or an overpriced cocktail with the best view in the city, it’s fun to splash out on something a little less ordinary but whilst you sip on your luxury drink and observe the crumbs which make up your meal, don’t you sometimes just wish you could sink your teeth into some real food?

This is why I love Bubbledogs. It has all the ingredients for a perfect night. Choose your bubbly from the selection of the world’s greatest grower champagnes which Bubbledogs promotes,

‘These smaller champagne houses have very little to compete with the grand marques, therefore this is our support for them.’

Once you’ve picked your drink, you can forget about mini appetizers or caviar, at Bubbledogs you’ll find gourmet hot dogs of the finest ingredients with original toppings to cater for all tastes. Choose from the Naked Dog, a plain and simple hot dog or the more exotic Jose Dog with salsa, avocado, sour cream and pickled jalepenos. There’s even a Breakie Dog complete with fried egg, black pudding and tomato relish!

On a recent trip back to London, a catch up night with the family was the perfect opportunity to try out Bubbledogs although I will warn you now, you might want to wrap up warm because the queue is longer than I would usually expect to wait for a meal! About twenty minutes into our waiting time, we were very much torn between sticking it out until the end or just heading off elsewhere (tummies were rumbling and the November weather was really kicking in!) but the window into the room revealed smiling faces and very tempting hotdogs so we waited the extra 20. Yes. It really was worthwhile! Once inside, we were seated promptly and the menus arrived swiftly. I was torn between the Jose Dog with the fresh sounding avocado and sour cream filling but ended up going for the New Yorker and of course we ordered the sides; Sweet Potato Fries and…. Tots…. no idea what to expect with these but they turned out to be like mini hash browns or potato croquettes; absolutely delicious!

The long wait was quickly forgotten as we all sipped on bubbly and tucked in to hearty hotdogs spilling over with yummy ingredients and a quick scan around the room revealed that we were not the only happy customers!

So next time you’re planning a celebratory meal, head over to Bubbledogs and leave with a full tummy rather than an empty wallet!

Bubbledogs is open from Tuesday to Saturdays 11.30 to 4pm and 5.30 – 11pm at 70 Charlotte Street, London W1T 4GQ.
