Almost Famous NQ – The rebirth

Almost Famous NQ 300

Almost Famous NQ is back! Ok, it never actually went away, but the original NQ Famous, the playground of boozy mischief and burger fantasies, has had itself a facelift; a nip & tuck, a lick of paint, new pretty pictures on the walls & even less signage! But that’s all just window dressing for what we really want from Almost Famous – mouthwatering, delicious, juicy, over-indulgent, calorie loaded, dirty, messy burgers. As if they would let us down.

Almost Famous is my baby, my passion, my chance to share my love for the most amazing burgers with everyone; it’s better than the shit you see on your insta screen. The styling is reflective of my personality, my adventures and my view on a pretty fucked up society out there, it’s not intended to shock or offend, it’s meant to make you think, excite and allow a sort of escapism, it’s hyper-real, super-fun, a sweet ass place to take your pals and eat a burger.” ~ Beau Myers

Famous NQ will have a brand new menu, bespoke to the NQ, which for now is being kept under wraps. What we do know is the burgers will be “fitter and juicier than ever, sauces creamier and punchier, toppings overloaded and fresh as fuck” and that there’s “a new style of burger – get up to your elbows in it. Is it a secret? – yes. Is there a kebab shop one with epic shawarma chicken on it? – yes.” Oh yeah, and we’ll be the first people to get the new menu, so watch this space (literally watch the space below, that’s where it’s going when we get it)

Of course it wouldn’t be Almost Famous without some sweet giveaways, and for this relaunch they are going all out. All weekend there will be limited edition Almost Famous goodie bags, a lucky dip with cheap tatty prizes we’ve found around the office“, free miniature cocktails, surly obnoxious staff, the chance to win free burgers for a year, cool shit to look at, happy drunk people AND the best juiciest burgers in town. Yeah, you did read that right…WIN FREE BURGERS FOR A YEAR!

Form a disorderly queue, because on Friday the first 20 people through the doors at Noon will receive one of Almost Famous’ brand new Black Cards, giving you a burger a week, every week, for a year.
