Whether you’re after a big Saturday morning hair of the dog sesh, or a simple upgrade from your Sunday lattes to espresso martinis, you deserve a boozy breakfast every once in a while!

Luckily for your indecisive Saturday morning self, we’ve put together a list of our favourite bottomless brunch and lunch venues, so you can keep in good spirits all weekend long. Booze appétit.

DARLING & CO | PADDINGTON

You’re going to want to ‘gram this. Every Sunday, Darling & Co presents their fabled prosecco and spritz fountain event, Sparkling Springs, at which you can pour your own bevs direct from the fountain! $60 will let you wander the lands with shared gourmet canapés like oysters, fried baby squid, and pumpkin and provolone arancini in hand, along with as many visits to the fountain as you could dream of!

SAKÉ RESTAURANT & BAR | CBD

For those special (bottomless) occasions, we’re hitting up Saké Restaurant & Bar for their Champagne Lunch sessions, from 12pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Enjoy a range of elegant dishes like a duo of oysters, steamed prawn dumplings, and scampi tempura, with two hours of flowing Veuve Clicquot.

Beirne Lane | Fortitude Valley

Get your party pants on, Beirne Lane’s Brunch Club has so much more than bottomless booze and delicious food to offer! Choose your booze package, starting from a glass on arrival for $49, a mid-tier package with spritzes, wine, and beer included, or an all-out VIP package with Lanson Champagne and a special weekly cocktail! The food is bottomless at Brunch Club, so strap in for katsu sandos, beer cheese cob loaves, and house-cured salmon blinis!

Covent Garden | West End

Is it brunch? Is it lunch? Is it a Sunday sesh? We don’t care as long as it’s bottomless! Head to Covent Garden every Sunday between 11am and 3pm to enjoy two hours of tap cocktails and a share board for just $49.

Patina at Customs House | CBD

There’s two ways to enjoy a premium bottomless brunch at Patina; first, simply order a la carte from Patina’s menu and add a Chandon S two-hour drinks package for $50, with free-flowing Chandon S, Chandon Sparkling Brut Rosé, Bellinis, and Belvedere Bloody Marys. Alternatively, elevate your weekend with a four-course Chandon S menu alongside the drinks package, with delights like spanner crab omelette, pumpkin waffle with Korean fried chicken and kimchi, and buttermilk pancakes with brûléed banana. Chandon yes!

One Fish Two Fish | Kangaroo Point

It’s the new joint on everyone’s fish lips – as well as serving up delicious seafood bites daily, One Fish Two Fish does a killer Sunday lunch session, with two hours of premium seafood and bottomless rosé to celebrate the end of your weekend! Book in for a lunchtime celebration at the 12-2 session, ease into your Sunday sesh from 2-4, or end the sesh on a high at the 4-6 seating!

Eden’s Table | CBD

For that perfect Sunday blend of boozy and fancy, head to the Westin’s signature restaurant, Eden’s Table, for a three-course lunch with two-hour beverage package! Held between 12:30 and 3, choose from a $90 Vigna Sancol prosecco package, or upgrade to Laurent Perrier La Cuvée or Rosé for a little more. As well as a decadent dessert trolley, there are mimosas and Pimm’s cups to make this one memorable Sunday lunch!

Mary Mae’s | New Farm

Rollin to the riverfront Mary Mae’s for the signature Queen Mary bottomless brunch! On Saturdays from 10:30-1:30, dive into a set brunch with either bottomles Bloody Marys or bottomless bubbles. Your four-course menu features gin and beetroot cured salmon crostini and DIY breakfast tacos – perfect start to the weekend, if you ask Mary.

Catchment Brewing Co. | West End

Did someone say eggs Benny washed down with a beer? A combination that simply has to be tasted to be believed, give it a try at Catchment Brewing Co.’s bottomless Sunday brunch and lunch. Dig into three different takes on the classic eggs Benny, try a bacon and egg roll or plunge yourself into a bowl of granola with fresh fruit and organic yoghurt. Don’t forget about the array of drinks on offer, including Bloody Marys, mimosas and of course, brewskies.

Cloudland | Fortitude Valley

Few combinations pair as well as Italian food and bottomless booze! $89 gets you two hours of bottomless booze alongside a menu featuring arancini, bruschetta, gnocchi and pizza, while the drinks on offer include wine, beers, and extensive list of spritzes! Running from 11:30-2, Cloudland’s Luxe Lunches are the perfect start to your Saturday celebrations.

VINTAGED BAR + GRILL | CBD

There’s nothing quite like starting off the morning with fresh orange juice…dashed in a glass of champagne…mimosas anyone? Wake up on the right side with Vintaged Bar + Grill’s unlimited brunch special, available every weekend for $39 per person. Buckle up (or unbuckle) to enjoy buttery croissants, fresh fruit, and a mouth-watering buffet.

With the guidance of this list, dine the right way this weekend – with a fork in one hand and an endless beverage in the other.
