Bottomless brunch satisfies a very specific desire. And whatever your drunk brunch requires, we want you to know that we support you. Whether you just want to day drink, have mimosas at a “virtual” buffet, or just swirl a Bloody Mary with the comfort of knowing that you can have as many as you want. These ten restaurants have outdoor seating, and great bottomless specials to go with it.
Land & Lake
The original Land & Lake is in the London House hotel downtown, and this is the Andersonville location. On the weekend they serve bottomless brunch (you get 90 minutes) and right now they’re open for carryout, indoor, and outdoor dining on their covered back patio.

Bar Takito has one of the most affordable bottomless deals in the West Loop, with $15 unlimited mimosas.

When we think “bottomless brunch,” Hub 51 immediately comes to mind. It’s the type of large, River North restaurant we expect to offer unlimited mimosas. The good news is that the food is pretty good, they serve brunch Wed-Sun, and have a heated and covered sidewalk patio. Order things like brioche French toast or breakfast tacos, and be prepared to take a long booze-induced nap later.
The Deal: Bottomless mimosas and bellinis for $28.
Park & Field now has a “virtual” buffet to go along with a $45 unlimited drink package of Bloody Marys, mimosas, rosé, and beer. What’s a virtual buffet you ask? You fill out an order form of all the brunch dishes you want (like waffles, omelettes, charcuterie, benedicts) and the kitchen plates it for you. Plus, the heated patio has lots of tents, Adirondack chairs, fire pits, and a camper-turned-bar.
The Deal: $45 buffet with bottomless Miller High Life, Bloody Marys, rosé, mimosa, and Modelo for an extra $40.
This is a rooftop bar in Wicker Park, and at 3,000 square feet, is very large. And on the weekends they serve bottomless brunch. The drink package is $25, and must be purchased with an entree like French toast, chicken and waffles, or chilaquiles.
The Deal: Bottomless mimosas, beermosas, Miller Light, and Bloody Marys (90-minute limit) $25.
We only ever go to this Italian restaurant in Lakeview for two reasons: the fantastic patio (which is now heated and covered) and the bottomless brunch. The menu has things like chicken and waffles, crab cake benedict, and sweets like bananas foster French toast. Also worth noting is that Zia will soon be closing to make way for a condo building - the owners recently sold the property to a development company.
The Deal: Bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys for $15.
This Spanish spot in Fulton Market has multiple locations in New York, but this is their first location in the Midwest. The brunch menu includes dishes like torijja, huevos con chorizo and breakfast paella, along with more tapas. As far as the bottomless mimosas and sangria are concerned: you’re limited to four drinks per hour. Strategize accordingly.

If you’ve lived in Chicago for any stretch of time, you’ve probably been to El Mariachi in Lakeview. The large back patio (now heated and covered) is a popular spot for get-togethers, specifically ones that involve day drinking. The menu has brunch dishes like breakfast burritos and tequila french toast, and nothing costs more than $12.99.
The Deal: Bottomless mimosas plus one entree for $26.
The only thing that makes a bottomless brunch feel even more ridiculously excessive is when it comes with a buffet. That’s what you’ll find at The Fremont in River North, along with a DJ, donut wall, and a retractable roof. Basically, when none of your friends can get their sh*t together for long enough to plan a trip to Vegas, this is your next best option.
The Deal: $50 buffet-style all-you-can-eat brunch with bottomless mimosas.
We didn’t see this one coming, but this great French restaurant in the Gold Coast has a pretty affordable ($19.95) bottomless mimosa special for brunch. Bistronomic has dishes like eggs benedict, crepes, and quiche lorraine, along with sweet options like pancakes and French toast. Just be aware, there’s a 90-minute limit.
