rooftop BBQ CLUB
The exclusive restaurant at the BBQ Club features a tasting menu which invites guests to baste and grill dishes alongside their chef before being grilled on their very own Big Green Egg BBQ built into the centre of the table. Jimmy Garcia and his team of chefs will guide you through a refined and interactive six course tasting menu, including dishes such as ‘The Queenie Scallop’ paired with coal baked cauliflower, hazelnut crumb and pickled red onion petals or the Lamb Cutlet with salsa verde, charred tender stem broccoli and Sicilian anchovies. And what better way to finish the evening than melting marshmallows for smores over your tabletop embers!
You are also welcome to help yourselves to summertime tipples from a rooftop ‘Honesty Bar’, serving refreshing gin concoctions, 10-pint beer kegs for the table, ‘good wine’ and ‘great wine’ all against the backdrop of stunning views of the river Thames.

JIMMYS POP UP
Jimmy Garcia, hailed ‘The King of Pop Ups’ is back again. Jimmy launches pop ups around the capital regularly and the BBQ concept is a firm favourite with the team. The thinking behind the concept was all around how much we love a BBQ as a nation but so often they’re cooked badly, sausages are charred beyond recognition and dishes are rarely very inventive. The BBQ club changes this completely and offers a wide ranging menu, all cooked with that mouth watering chargrilled taste. The Southbank BBQ Club bring the concept to the heart of town, to one of the busiest areas in the city in summer, for everyone to experience great BBQ food and the Jimmy Garcia pop-up experience.
Jimmy Garcia Catering extends beyond BBQ’s as the team cater around London and internationally, for high-end events, large seated dinner and receptions. The team cook regularly for brands such as Google and Facebook, retail brands such as Habitat and high-level corporate businesses. Get in touch if you’d like to hear more.
