Imperial is known around the Chapel Street traps for its high-calibre cocktails, especially those $20 fishbowls on Fridays, and its top-notch pizzas — the pickle-plenty reuben pizza will blow your mind. Now, the venue is expanding its offering and bringing a bottomless brunch into the mix. Yes, it seems the team have cottoned onto the trend of 2018 — and the fact that people really like boozy brunching — and will be running sessions every weekend. Moreover, this indulgent affair will only cost you one pineapple ($50). Melburnians, rejoice.
With sessions starting from 10am, both Saturday and Sunday, the bottomless brunch includes a dish off the scrumptious brunch menu as well as two hours of beverages — ample time to drink your fair share of bubbles, beer and a cocktail, or two. Food-wise there are crème fraîche scrambled eggs with chives, smashed avo on toast with feta and buttermilk pancakes with seasonal fruit, mascarpone and berry coulis, to name but a few. Every kind of bruncher is catered for and each dish can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace in between sips.
So, clear your calendar, grab your friends and get ready to eat and drink to your heart's content. You don't need an official reason — it's spring and you deserve a treat. Spots fill up fast, so it's best to book through Imperial's website. Happy brunching.
