Bubbledogs has fused these two favourites together in the hope that they will never go out of style and is considered one of the best champagne bars in London.

Well Bubbledogs is notorious for breaking tradition and convention and doing things the modern way, earning its title as one of the best champagne bars in London.

Founder Sandia Chang and her Michelin star chef husband, James Knappet, wanted to create a drinking and dining experience that is comfortable and fun, while catering for everyone.

They offer five champagnes by the glass, with bubbledog’s own label Collin-Guillaume, Rosé, at only £10.50. There are nine delicious hot dogs that you can choose to complement your champagne which are all handmade from scratch everyday using only the best ingredients. Some are simple and ordinary while others are much more adventurous, such as the guest hot dog which consists of chilli lime sauce, satay sauce, mango chutney, yogurt, cucumber and coriander salad.

Our favourite is the Mac Daddy which has macaroni and cheese, crispy onions and bacon bits generously layered on top of the hot dog and costs a reasonable £8.50.

Bubbledogs is located on Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia, and usually gets booked up so it is best to book a table in advance so you are not left disappointed. If you are looking for a balance between high standards yet a comfortable and casual atmosphere, Bubbledogs is definitely a winner.
