It’s time to put the kardonnay on ice and crack out the footy franks because Melbourne has a *noice, different, unusual* new trend that means you can have your mimosa and eat it too.
Steadily gaining momentum on the brekkie scene is the concept of a ‘bottomless brunch’, but what’s really making waves is ‘bottomless boozy brunches’ because - you guessed it - you can get white-girl wasted on bellinis and bacon all from the comfort of an IKEA dining chair. Praise baby J, hallelujah!
So, here are five cafes you can enjoy bottomless cocktail brunches at in the great city of Melbourne.
House Of Lulu White
Every day of the goddamn week, House Of Lulu White throws down a bottomless cocktail brunch of free-flowing mimosas, espresso martinis and bloody marys for a whopping ninety minutes or until you pass out into a vat of pineapple juice. Better yet it only costs $35, so think of it as an investment. Lulu accepts groups of all sizes and everyone must order food on top of their cocktails (not included in the $35).
What's included: bottomless mimosas, espresso martinis & bloody marys (no food)
