You can enjoy a poolside picnic at this fun Downtown brunch


Sponsored: Gourmet goodies, pool access and even a pinata competition? Sign us up…

If you’re looking for a spot to soak up the sun and tuck into some top dishes, we’ve got a brunch we reckon you’re going to want to book.

The Urban Picnic, which takes place poolside at the Vida Downtown comes complete with live cooking stations, chilled poolside beats and interactive themed games, including a piñata.

Rather than just helping yourself to the buffet, guests can pile up their picnic basket with gourmet goodies from the salad bar, cheese table or sandwich counter, which they can take back to their table or cabana.

Book in early and bag yourself a cabana, meaning you’ll have direct access to the pool, perfect for taking a mid-picnic dip. There’s no extra charge, they’re just given on a first come, first serve basis.


On the live cooking stations, guests are spoiled for choice with a nacho station, pizza corner of freshly baked pizzas straight from the oven and a poolside BBQ serving up made-to-order seafood, fish and meat with an array of sides and sauces.

But it’s not just about the food. Once you’ve grazed your way through the picnic basked and taken a dip in the pool, ready yourself for a piñata competition. Each week a different iconic adult cartoon character from Break Beavis to Stewie from Family Guy will be on the pinata. The winner will bag themselves a brunch voucher for two, or challenge your mates to a game of foosball or table tennis

Grab your swim shorts, we’ll see you there…
