At HotBox we use a combination of kiln dried Hickory and Oak in our 1 tonne Rotisserie Smoker. The meat is dry rubbed and cooked low and slow(ly) to create tender, succulent cuts that melt in the mouth. Be careful though, there's plenty of spice to get those taste buds fired up!

​Our delicious brunch menu runs Tuesday through Sunday, from 11.30am to 2.30pm (Sundays until 3pm). This includes our famous Bottomless Booze option!

For £25, it includes unlimited Prosecco, Mimosas and a selection of Summer Cocktail’s, one drink at a time, for 2 hrs since the time of your booking (you can mix and match your drinks throughout the meal). Food is not included.

“…best brunch I’ve ever had in London!” – Rosie Londoner


We have a great selection of draft and bottled beers, proudly serving over 10 types of craft beers. There's a wine list specially curated to match our meats, and our house cocktails feature inventive twists on popular classics.

For the tequila lovers, there's a smokey variation on a Tommy's Margarita and for those who prefer something both sweet and tart, the Passion Smash is the one for you! The old souls are also covered with a selection of bourbon-based for something a little more old-school.

“Take a friend who loves music, booze and most of all meat, they’ll thank you for it.” – Olive Magazine

46 & Mercy

HotBox resides in a former Street Art gallery and our basement Cocktail Bar, 46 & Mercy, pays homage to the space with original works from the likes of Blek Le Rat, Pure Evil, Robbo and D-Face to name a few.
On weekends you’ll find our DJ’s playing anything from alternative house, funk to hip hop. So take a seat, chill out and take the time to work your way through our selection of seriously delicious cocktails.

“Head downstairs for the cocktail bar; it’s kitsch, stylish… The drinks are experimental and taste damn good.”
– Hot BarChick
