Bodega Underground - one of the best CBD restaurants in Melbourne

Jean-Louis Carvalho

Bodega Underground, CBD

Bodega Underground's famed Mexican-inspired bottomless brunch takes over the CBD taqueria every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with seatings at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Book your crew in for a brunchtime fiesta at Bodega, one of the best Melbourne CBD restaurants, for $75, and you'll enjoy a lively five-course spread (which just so happens to be entirely gluten-free).

The bottomless brunch features favourites like street corn with chipotle mayo and queso, chipotle fried chicken, chicken chilaquiles, and a 12-hour braised birria quesataco. Dessert is also taken care of: classic churros paired with loads of dulce de leche. Vegan brunch lovers can even enjoy their own five-course spread for the same price. To drink, there's 90 minutes of bottomless Mexican-themed sips, including Bodega's go-to guava-infused Mexi-mimosas. The quality and quantity of the offerings help make this one of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne.


Half Acre brunch buffet - one of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne

Half Acre, South Melbourne

With its light-filled atrium-style space and stunning open kitchen, Half Acre makes for quite the beautiful Melbourne bottomless brunch destination. And the huge buffet stacked with produce-driven, seasonal brekkie dishes sure doesn't disappoint, either.

Available for two-hour sittings on Saturday and Sunday, access to Half Acre's brunch buffet comes in at $69 per person, which includes a whole host of sweet and savoury options. On Sunday arvos, a special meat station also pops up. For just an additional $29 per person, you can get free-flowing sips, including seasonal cocktails, prosecco, wine and mocktails.


Moon House Yum Cha - one of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne

Moonhouse, Balaclava

Balaclava's Moonhouse is home to some of the best yum chas in Melbourne. It's also one of the few dim sum haunts that offers bottomless booze. Drop by Moonhouse on a Saturday or Sunday to nab the $59 endless yum cha that cycles through 12 different dishes — think XO scallops, chicken and prawn wontons, roast duck pancakes, char siu pork buns, salt and pepper calamari, and prawn dumplings. There's also a totally vegan option for the plant-based diners out there.

And if you feel like making a big party out of the whole affair, you can add on unlimited alcohol for $45 per person. Beer and wine are all that's available, but the Moonhouse crew isn't pouring the cheap and nasty stuff. Get around a Hop Nation pale ale, Stomping Ground pilsner, the pinot grigio from Mandi in Mildura and an MDI Friulano skin contact number.


The Smith Drag Brunch - one of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne

The Smith, Prahran

Sashay right into your Sunday with a little help from The Smith's weekly Melbourne Drag Brunch series, hosted by local queens. Running two sparkly sittings each weekend (12–2pm and 3–5pm), it's the ultimate OTT Sunday session. Book a table and enjoy all the raucous fun, while tucking into your pick of brunch plate — maybe Belgian waffles or the prawn roll with shiraz gin caviar — and two hours of bottomless booze. Choose from a range of beer and wine, or opt for the specialty spritz lineup. All that for a not-too-shabby $74. This is where you head for some of the best bottomless brunch in Melbourne.

But if this seems a bit too much for you, or your mates just aren't into drag (how dare they?), then you can swing by on a Saturday for the crew's soulful gospel choir bottomless brunch that'll set you back $70 per person.

Bottomless lunch at NOMAD

Nomad, CBD

Boozy brunches in Melbourne are hugely popular. But the later-in-the-day bottomless lunch is on the up-and-up. These are for those of us who don't necessarily want to down a heap of mimosas with breakfast while surrounded by hen's parties. Sometimes we just prefer to eat a more grown-up meal paired with a good wine, beer or spritz.

Enter Nomad, one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. Here, the crew is showing us exactly what the boozy lunch should look like with its latest Lunch & Linger experience. Every Saturday and Sunday, from 12–2.30pm, lunchtime diners in the CBD can get a selection of mezzes and a dessert paired with 90 minutes of free-flowing wine, beer and spritzes for $110. We'd consider this to be one of the classiest bottomless booze experiences in Melbourne.

This all costs $69 per person, and there's always the option to add more food if you're still hungry.

Magic Mountain Saloon, CBD

Nicole Cleary

Fable Rooftop, CBD

Fable, the CBD's highest rooftop bar (don't worry, it's got heaters and a retractable awning), is home to one of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne. Every Saturday, from 1–3pm, the team pairs two hours of unlimited vodka-based cocktails, prosecco, mimosas and beers with a huge array of canapes.

This includes fresh oysters, cured kingfish, harissa chicken croquettes, fried calamari and cauliflower nuggets. If it's a hot Melbourne day, the roof will open up and let the sunshine in while you brunch. But we also love dropping by during a rainstorm. There's something quite romantic about drinking the day away while you're encased in a glass room covered in raindrops.


Non-Stop Noods at New Quarter Vietnamese Restaurant in Richmond.

New Quarter, Richmond 

Unlimited noodles, bottomless booze. That's what's on offer every weekend lunchtime at Richmond's New Quarter. The Vietnamese restaurant — from the team behind Hanoi HannahTokyo Tina and Firebird — has jumped on the Melbourne bottomless brunch train, but is swapping out eggs and avocado on toast for oodles of noodles.

For a very modest $49 per person, diners get to choose two snacks from a lineup of mini banh mis, hot and sour oysters, wagyu beef skewers and grilled corn tartlets — before they dive into bowls of unlimited noodles. You can either focus on the food, not letting anything else distract you as you work your way through the noods, or you can add a bottomless booze package to the whole affair. For $60 per person, you'll get two hours of unlimited tap beer, wine and carafes of the crew's house margarita made with makrut and ginger-infused blanco tequila.

Evie's Disco Diner, Fitzroy - one of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne

Evie's Disco Diner, Fitzroy

The sparkly disco vibes of Evie's are the perfect antidote to a big ol' work week, so it's handy the venue's bottomless drag bingo brunch is now yours to enjoy between 11am and 4pm every Saturday and Sunday. Book in anytime before 11:45 to catch the bingo (which ends at 2pm), or opt for a later session to just get the food and booze.

There are vegan options aplenty and not one, but two different booze packages. Team your brunch plate with free-flowing mimosas, wine, beer and cider for $69, or enjoy all of that plus free-flowing espresso martinis, frozen margs and spritzes for an extra $30.


Neptune - bottomless oysters

Neptune, Windsor

Neptune is one of the very best seafood restaurant in Melbourne. And we can think of no better way to experience it than on a Saturday afternoon when the team runs their unlimited oysters special. For $70, you get three courses of seafood and two hours of unlimited fresh oysters. This is a pretty great deal for oyster lovers, as you can get through a heap of these bad boys in a couple hours.

Of course, you've got to pair them with bubbles. Thankfully, the Neptune crew lets you have two hours of bottomless booze for just an additional $45 per person. Get around the bubbles, beers and other wines throughout this period, either snuggling by the fireplace or out on the street.
