Brunch is, without question, the best meal of the day. Nothing quite compares to rolling out of bed at 11:30 on a Sunday morning only to tuck into a giant serving of eggs benedict with potatoes on the side. Don’t @ me on this, you know I’m right.
In fact, brunch is so unquestionably amazing that there’s only one thing that can make it better: bottomless booze. And whether your morning-drink-of-choice is a Bloody Mary or a mimosa, Chicago offers up some of the best boozy brunches around. That is, if you know where to find them.
Here are the best bottomless brunches in Chicago.
Avli on the Park: 180 N Fields Blvd Chicago, IL 60601
Avli Taverna: 1335 W Wrightwood Ave Chicago, IL 60614
Avli River North: 702 N Wells St Chicago, IL 60654
Buy any entree and you can enjoy $25 bottomless mimosas. Say it with me again, one entree unlocks the greatest deal of the century and that is $25 bottomless mimosas. It doesn’t matter how you like your mimosas—50/50 OJ split, 90/10 champagne heavy, or a splash of either, it pays for itself. Not to mention it’s available at not one, but three, of Avli’s Chicago locations. The access to great food, drink, and vibes are unmatched.

If you’re looking to leave brunch a little more than just buzzed this weekend, then DS Tequila is the spot for you. This is one of the best places to get brunch in Chicago and is a Boystown.

Zia’s Lago Vista
3819 North Ashland
Craving Italian? Head to Zia’s Lago Vista for a truly unique boozy brunch experience. Though this Lakeview spot does serve up a few traditional breakfast items like omelets and French Toast, the true star of their menu is the breakfast pizza. With $15 unlimited mimosas or Bloody Marys to boot, a weekend brunch at Zia’s is sure to be a hit!
Hutch American Bistro
With locations in Lakeview, River North, and now Andersonville, this American Bistro has got the brunch game on lock. And though the food at Hutch is undeniably delicious, it’s their drink menu that really rakes in the fans. From stunning cocktails to tall boys to everything in between, Hutch has got you covered no matter your tastes. Personally, I’d suggest going for the Spicy Sunset carafe: a tequila-based drink with jalapeno, pineapple, orange juice, and fresh strawberry puree. They offer $18 bottomless mimosas, Monday-Friday, and $26 bottomless carafes on the weekends.
736 North Clark Street
