Pilgrim Bar

CBD

Arguably one of Melbourne's most hyped bottomless brunches from last summer season was Pilgrim Bar's Gin High Tea, and in great news, it's returned 2022. Happening Friday through Sunday, $65 big ones will get you three tea-infused gin cocktails, bottomless prosecco, and a hefty selection of sweet and savoury delights.

The Firehouse

RINGWOOD

The Firehouse is a converted smokery and bar in the heart of Ringwood in Melbourne’s east. 
The former fire station, erected in 1929 has been repurposed somewhat ironically to a smoking house and eatery with some of the best American-style BBQ in the city, they’ve recently put some finishing touches on the quaint Victorian-period space with a new beer garden, and an open-air deck but the venue still retains some of its original fittings including the firepole. Every Saturday and Sunday from 11am you can get involved in the Firehouse’s bottomless brunch, a $65 excursion to the south with smoked brisket buns, cheeseburgers, baked cowboy beans and house-made hash browns, there are also unlimited cocktails so you can really get stuck in.

Meanwhile, brunch will consist of several menu mainstays including but not limited to famous Soda bread, Cured Baw Baw Alpine trout rillette and Farmer’s Daughters terrine.

Firebird

WINDSOR

The flame-licked Firebird has become a favourite among the south since its 2020 opening, and with a bottomless offering this hot, they'll likely convert a northsider or two, too. $55 big ones will get you a three-course feast kicking off with grilled oysters and their now-iconic scotch quail eggs with crispy green rice flakes and salted duck egg relish.
