Where to Grab Bloody Marys at Brunch This Weekend

Dressed up or served simply, these bloody marys are worth seeking out

View as Map

Bloody marys are to brunch as pancakes are to breakfast, which is to say, completely necessary. Now that the legal alcohol consumption time on Sundays has been moved to 11 a.m., there’s no need to suffer through a pounding headache until well past noon. Some bars on this list offer every topping under the sun, while others prefer to keep it simple and let the bloody mary mix speak for itself.
