For anyone not in the know, the typical perfect way to start the day is to have a good hearty breakfast, but that’s only half of the equation. After breakfast, there is brunch, and after brunch, comes bottomless brunch.
The best time to start drinking is almost definitely sometime between breakfast and lunch – according to the creed of bottomless brunch – and there are many places in Liverpool that will cater to your every ‘starting early’ needs. Here are our picks for the best bottomless brunch places in the city, with a hell of a lot of brilliant breakfast food and, of course, unlimited alcohol.
The Brunch Club
Duke Street is just a short walk from Liverpool Central train station, which is where you’ll find this hidden gem. As you can probably guess from the name, brunch is their thing, which is why we absolutely had to put these guys on here.
At £35 per person, it’s about your standard price for a bottomless brunch service, and for that price you’ll actually get a few choices as to what you eat and drink. Booze wise, you can pick between: Prosecco, Mimosa, wine, beer or cider (if you’re super hardcore), and for food you can choose between their traditional brunch (featuring dishes like buffalo chicken sliders and avocado on toast) or vegetarian and vegan alternatives.
Ma Boyle’s Alehouse and Eatery
Being about as city centre as you could possibly ask for from a brunch place, Ma Boyles is in the perfect location for a group of friends to head down to on a weekend visit. As they proudly state, brunch is the most important meal of the day, and they believe this to such an extent that they actually have both a weekday and a weekend menu for brunch.
We’d highly recommend checking out both menus before heading down, just because you don’t get that kind of brunch choice all that often and it’s a good opportunity to fine tune your bottomless experience.
The Baltic Social
This place is practically famous in Liverpool among people who enjoy alternative eatery, and with good reason. It’s located right in the Baltic Triangle, so a little walk from the city centre, but absolutely worth it.
Everything in the Triangle has this kind of rustic feel to it while maintaining that sense of high quality, and the Social’s cool interior stands testament to that – nowhere on Merseyside will you find better food than in the triangle, and in this case, Parliament Square.
In terms of drinks, you’re only really choosing between prosecco and pilsner, but there’s that much food on offer at a bottomless brunch at The Baltic Social that you’ll probably forget all about the booze – well, not ALL about the booze of course…
If you’re the kind of person that enjoys a few cocktails at their bottomless brunch (AKA: an iron bellied warrior) then this is probably the place for you. While some venues have you choose between prosecco, beer and wine for your drinks choices, Neighbourhood go completely the opposite way.
Whether it’s gin, vodka or classic cocktails you want to wash your brunch down with, this place has you covered, and speaking of food, there are so many alternative options here you’ll be spoilt for choice. Charred asparagus sushi, anyone?
NYL Restaurant and Bar
Proudly bringing the tastes of New York to Liverpool city centre, NYL Restaurant and Bar is on North John Street right in the middle of everything. As you might expect, their range of cocktails is astonishing, getting to the point where they even run cocktail masterclasses for punters looking to learn how to whip up their own Singapore Sunrises.
The menu smashes together everything we know and love about New York style grub with a hint of classic Liverpool, so if you’re the kind of person who loves all that ‘ham on rye’ American theme, give this place a go.
Mason’s is a must try for anyone lucky enough to be visiting our fine city, so although it’s located in the Ropewalks just a short journey from the city centre (literally 10 minute walk max) their bottomless brunch will make it well worth it.
At £30pp (£35 on Saturdays) we’re talking regular prices, but the food on offer here is anything but regular. Sure, at first glance, it might seem like chicken and waffle or hangover hash (chorizo, potato, peppers, onions, mozzarella cheese topped with a fried egg does the Italian kissing fingers thing) but their eclectic breakfast dishes are fantastic, and well worth jumping out of your comfort zone for.
The people that run Jimmy’s on Bold Street clearly adore food, evidenced by the sheer number of mouth watering dishes on their menu. 6 hour smoked pork Benedict, a cheeseburger with bacon jam and a brioche bun, fried chicken and waffles with maple syrup – and that’s just the bottomless brunch menu.
You also get a free drink with your meal (not that you’d ever be parched for a pint during a bottomless brunch session, but still, it’s a nice touch), making the £35 you’ll be paying for this table as ‘value for money’ as you could ever ask for.
Third floor of the Bentley building on Brunswick Street is where you’ll want to go to find this beauty, Liberte, which is undisputedly one of Liverpool’s favourite places to dine in fashion. Their rooftop seating is one of the most scenic places in the whole city, so it’s almost worth going with these guys for that reason alone.
The food though, honestly, it’s like nothing else. The bottomless brunch main options are: Liberte house curry, katsu curry, sea bass and drunken noodles, with options on sides and extras if you’re still peckish after that. Of course, their cocktails are brilliant as well, but with food like that it’s a wonder their not charging double the regular price for their brunch menu.
