Description: Bubbledogs, located in Fitzrovia, was opened by husband and wife team James Knappett and Sandia Chang (both previously at Noma and Per Se). Unlike most Champagne bars, at Bubbledogs you can explore exclusive grower Champagnes sourced directly from the producers, whilst sinking your teeth into a selection of American-style hotdogs, with globally inspired toppings. Presenting a laid-back ambience, rustic reclaimed wood, and exposed brickwork, the venue is ideal for relaxed casual entertaining.

6 of us visited Bubbledogs in May and I haven't stop recommending it to my friends since.

I love the concept of providing simple food paired with champagne - and who doesn't love a hotdog?! Priced at around £6 - £9 (from memory) each, they are the perfect amount of food to fill you up with enough room for a glass or 4 of champagne too.

The service was great - there is nothing worse than someone not knowing how to pour an expensive drink when you're paying so much for it - so it was nice to see skilled staff!

The only downside was the restaurant itself. While it was great in general - for 6 of us we were really cramped. It was quite dark and loud too - so it all amounted to us not being able to chat very well, which was the whole point of us going out for dinner.

I'd say perfect for 2-4 of you, but any more maybe not.

the place is small and has limited seating, so there is always a queue
the seats arent the most comfortable
first we were offered the ledge seats which arent the best
for a place that offers champagne it wasnt exactly the more luxurious or even slightly comfortable places

the hotdog was ok, ive had better
my friend and i both had the sloppy joe, a standard hotdog topped with a beef mince
ive had better at meatmarket (meatliquor)
bubbledogs is too expensive for what it is

i also had the "tots", which are potato croquets and the sweet potato fries
both were ok, nothing amazing again, just regular
things which i could probably purchase in the iceland supermarket freezer section

they will try and make you buy a whole bottle of champagne, its not cheap, neither was the one glass we opted for

overall, too expensive for a very basic hotdog and a regular glass of champagne with some extra sides that were also not very special
the place is small and uncomfortable

First of all the only negative is that you can't book unless a group of 6 or more. You have to go there out your name down and then you can go and have drinks in nearby bars and pubs and check where you are in the queue and they text you when your table is ready. Which was fine as there are lots of places to get a drink nearby.

The place is quite small but a really great atmosphere! The staff are really friendly and the place is really cool inside!

The pork hot dogs have like a chorizo taste almost which were yum! The Jose and Philly cheese went down well with my group of friends! And the sweet potato fries are amazing! Must have!!

We had bubbles as well as we couldn't go to bubbledogs and not have the full shabang!

Overall we loved it and will definitely be back!

This place had been recommended to me by friends and I'm so glad I went! Went with friends on a Saturday afternoon. Inside is small (only a few tables!) but very trendy. We were lucky enough to get a 6-person table with only a small wait. Staff really helpful and friendly, and service very quick. Fizz was brilliant, and lots of choice. Had a fourth of July-themed hot dog which was brilliant, and make sure you get some sweet potato fries - amazing! Will be back!
