25 boozy bottomless brunch places in Manchester

1. Motley – Deansgate

Motley over at the Yotel on Deansgate is giving Mancs a Dubai-inspired take on bottomless brunch with some very creative cocktails that still hark home. Did someone say Vimtonic? As for the food, you’ve got everything from crispy beef salad and egg and waffles to a classic full English, chorizo hash and more.


And this isn’t any old bottomless offering either: this is bottomless brunch, lunch, or dinner as you sip away at non-stop drinks for 90 minutes between 4–8pm on Fridays and from 11:30am-4pm on Saturdays. Bosh.

2. Ramona/Firehouse – NQ/Ancoats

Bordering two of Manchester city centre‘s coolest and best foodie neighbourhoods, the team who run the show over at Ramona and Firehouse during the day and well into the night have become famous around the UK for their Detroit-style pizza, loaded tater tots, margaritas and good vibes.


Better still, you can turn those Cali peps slices, helpings of fresh burrata, spicy margs, mimosa and more bottomless at just £35pp for the standard 90-minute window. Dynamite.

3. Ménagerie – New Bailey

Located just across the bridge from Spinningfields in one of Salford‘s newest mini-districts, the New Bailey, you’ll find the soft, stylish pink and grey paradise known as Ménagerie — just look for the neon sign, balloons and flower walls and you’re in the right place.

Offering their bottomless brunch from £45 per person seven days a week until 5pm, you can get two breakfast plates, 90 minutes of unlimited listed drinks including prosecco by the glass, pornstar martinis, mimosas, Kiki fruit punch and bloody marys, and you can even enjoy a bottomless twist on afternoon tea.


4. Peaky Blinders – Deansgate

The Peaky Blinders bar on Peter Street grows more popular year after year, and not just because people enjoy dressing up in fancy old-world clobber and coming along to see the lookalikes — it’s the birdcage of tasty bites, ‘Cherry Ada’s and ‘Shel-bee’ whiskey-based specials that keep them coming back.

Priced at £35 per person for 90 minutes of bottomless drinks and a birdcage of tasty bites to share, the weekend brunch menu is served up at 4, 6 and 8pm on Friday, 12 noon, 2:15 and 4:30pm on Saturday, as well as at 1pm and 3pm on Sunday.

5. SakkuSamba – Spinningfields

If you haven’t given SakkuSamba on Hardman Square a go yet, their bottomless brunch offering might be one of the best in Manchester, for our money.

It’s not often we say this but the Spinningfields gem gives you just the right amount of restraint to give you some structure and, let’s be honest, three decent-sized small plates and a side is more than enough to fill you and leave plenty of room for as much booze as you can muster across 1 hour and 45 minutes.

6. Delhi House Cafe – Corn Exchange

This Delhi-inspired bottomless brunch gives you 90 minutes of unlimited fizz, lager or cocktails plus a starter and a main at Delhi House Cafe in the Corn Exchange.


Think mouthwatering dish options like a tandoori chicken tikka naan sandwich and chips, creamed chicken or paneer Kathi rolls, plus free-flowing mango mimosas, Singapore slings and much more. £35.95 per head, it’s available every Thursday to Sunday between 12-4pm.

7. Banyan – Corn Exchange and Spinningfields

Another solid Manchester bottomless brunch spot is Banyan, offering 90 mins of the good stuff and free reign on their morning/early afternoon menu — we’re talking breakfast hash, French toast, revitalising bowls, onion bhaji wraps and much, much more.

Better still, you can turn an evening affair bottomless too, with their supper club offering you the same set-up only with the evening menu and all for the same price of £34.95. Not too shabby.

8. Tampopo – Corn Exchange and Albert Square

A Pan-Asian bottomless brunch with katsu, pad thai, curry noodles and even dessert? Sign us up. With a choice of two or three courses, this is still one of the most generous bottomless deals we’ve ever found in the city, giving you the freedom of the whole menu.

From Monday to Sunday, you can get 90 minutes of free-flowing bubbles, lager, rum beach buckets, cocktails and more, as well as any medium or large brunch plate, be it veggie, chicken, pork or otherwise. Not bad for £36 a head.


9. Italiana Fifty-Five – Great Northern Warehouse and Castlefield

Next up is one we’d consider an old faithful: Italiana Fifty-Five, formerly known as Cibo. With three sites in Manchester, now including one in Didsbury. We’ve had this particular bottomless brunch so many times now we’ve lost count but it never disappoints.

Available Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12-3pm, you can fill your boots with pasta, pizza, steak, risotto and pretty much whatever you fancy for your three-course meal, all whilst and hour and a half of whatever drink you like. Rinse them cocktails — you know you want to.

10. Canto – Ancoats

Bottomless tapas and sangria at Canto puts a Portuguese twist on boozy brunch proceedings over in Ancoats. The sister site of AA Rosette restaurant, El Gato Negro, this is what they call ‘tipsy tapas’.

Priced at £38 a head, you get a choice of three plates each and 90 minutes of unlimited drinks with choices like white Sangria, cava, bellinis, house wine and lager. Tapas choices include options like jamón croquetas, salt cod fritters, roasted cauliflower and lentil stew, crispy squid and plenty more. Never fails.

11. Elnecot – Ancoats

£30 for one of the best bottomless brunches in Manchester? Don’t mind if we do. They keep it simple here as you just opt for your unlimited drinks on top of the usual but you’ll hear no complaints from us whilst we’re sipping on breakfast martinis, Earl Greyhounds, bloody mary, Aigua de València or a beer.


Brunch dishes, meanwhile, feature the likes of crispy pork belly with rosti, fried eggs, savoy kimchi, Elnecot chilli jam and yoghurt; wild mushrooms on toast with Grace’s goat’s cheese, as well as Elnecot’s full English and eggs on toast, just to name a few.

12. The Bay Horse Tavern – Northern Quarter

Affectionately known by locals as ‘Horse-moor’, the boozy brunch menu at upmarket NQ pub The Bay Horse Tavern is a pretty traditional affair dish-wise, although there is a funky peanut butter, bacon and fried banana croissant bad boy to be found here too.

Priced at £32.50 for a dish and unlimited drinks until 4pm every weekend, think egg, bacon and sausage butties; fry-ups; poached and scrambled eggs (they do eggs really well here) mushrooms, avo and smoked salmon on toast, as well as fizz, Irish coffee, beer, mimosas, bloody marys and house wine. Easy.

13. Gaucho – Deansgate

Maybe one of the more expensive on this list but worth every penny, Gaucho’s ‘Electro Brunch’ is one of the Manchester OGs and it also happens to be one of the best steaks in town. Setting you back £65, it’s all about the beef here which is wet-aged and can be cut with a butter knife it’s that soft.

The music-fuelled all-you-can-eat midday feast also features cocktails like pornstar martinis and Aperol spritz alongside glasses of Argentinian Domain Chandon and even includes a brunch dessert of smoked chocolate ganache. They have a maximum of eight drinks per person but, let’s be honest, that’s plenty.


14. Joshua Brooks – Princess Street

One of the most reliable bottomless brunch places in Manchester since the whole craze started, it’ll set you back £29.95 for big portions of Korean fried chicken, burgers and fries, sweet chilli tofu and more, as well as drinks like Tom Collins, rum punch, mango and passionfruit daiquiris and plenty more.

90 minutes any time between noon and 7pm. You simply can’t go wrong with this one and you can also unlock the full cocktail menu for an extra tenner.

15. Fress – NQ

Fress is an award-winning white-subway tiled restaurant on Oldham Street that often has queues out the door for its bottomless boozy brunch. There’s a hearty menu featuring all the favourites, from a full English and beans on toast to mouth-watering waffles and pancakes, but it’s the sweet stuff we go for.

With a 1 hour 15 minute slot for drinks, choices include prosecco, mimosas, house wine and lager. This is all for a set cost of £15 extra per person. No need to book but top-ups must be the same drink. The bottomless brunch is available 9am-5pm, seven days a week. Oh hell yes.

16. Zouk Tea Bar and Grill – Quadrangle

Just off Oxford Road Corridor, you’ll find one of the very best bottomless brunches in Manchester and it’s over at Zouk — also one of the best places for a curry in town that you can enjoy bottomless style, but that’s a separate matter. Two plates and as much booze as you can stomach. Glorious.


Either way, for £35 a pop from 12:30 to 5:00pm every Saturday, you can get an incredible South Indian and Pakistani-inspired menu featuring everything from masala omelettes and the ‘Bollywood Benedict’ t wagyu sliders, pulled lamb nihari calzones and SO much more. Absolutely slaps every single time.

17. Manahatta – Deansgate

A favourite amongst the flag-waving bottomless brunch brigade, we can’t think of many places that come more immediately to mind than Manahatta on Deansgate. Two whole hours of non-stop booze and some Insta-worthy scran for £36.95 until 3pm and you can upgrade to any dish for an extra fiver.

Manahatta’s brunch menu features a wide range of spritzes, bloody marys or lager to enjoy alongside plates that range from Mexican wraps to breakfast hash, pancakes, steak frites and other NYC-inspired plates. You can also book big parties and the main menu for £41.95 and, yes, they are still doing their famous ‘Swifty Bottomless’ brunch dates.

18. The Pen and Pencil – NQ

Another long-standing favourite over ours, you’ll find plenty of people heading to The Pen and Pencil when they’re round Northern Quarter way and after a solid bottomless brunch.

Available for groups of up to 20, their bottomless brunch event runs on the last Saturday of every month, costs £45 and will leave you full to bursting — and that’s just the booze part. You’ve got all of the staple egg dishes, pancakes and potato cakes, as well as all your classic cocktails. Sorted.


19. BLVD – Spinningfields

Very similar vibes here — no list of the best bottomless brunch places in Manchester is complete without BLVD: the Spinningfields venue without the vowels but all the flavour, putting their own unique spin on things with a selection of small plates like veg tempura to Penang spring rolls, keftedes and more.

This is ideal for those still wanting the luxury of a bottomless date but with a more sophisticated menu. Choose from a Bloody Mary (or a dozen), bottled beers, BLVD’s gin cocktail and prosecco in your 90-minute slot. Bottomless brunch here costs £38pp for 90 mins from 1-5:45pm (two plates and a side). As for the entertainment, this place speaks for itself.

20. Crazy Pedro’s – NQ and Deansgate

Yes, Crazy P’s does do bottomless brunch and yes it is mint. Enjoy unlimited slices from their ever-rotating daily menu of crazy pizza concoctions, as well as non-stop Hooch, beer, prosecco and their classic Frozen Margz for 90 minutes

It’s just £29.50pp for pure carbs and the fun-time juice when you book and it also happens to be ‘r Amy’s favourite pizza place and quite a few of us would probably agree with her.

21. Shack Bar and Grill

90 minutes of unlimited drinks and any dish from their extensive brunch menu, Shack does a very solid bottomless offering and always delivers on the portion sizes every weekend — they even whack on an Abba singalong each Saturday. £32.50 per person. Not bad.


Drinks include prosecco, bellinis, mimosas, beer and cider, or you can upgrade to the likes of pornstar martinis, rum punch, house spirit and mixers. They even do bottomless pancake days, specifically, because if there’s one thing that never disappoints, it’s a proper fluffy stack of pancakes and toppings.

22. Ducie Street Warehouse – Piccadilly

In our opinion, Ducie Street Warehouse quietly does some of the best bottomless brunch in Manchester, there just aren’t enough people that know about it, so we’re fixing that. Grandad’s Sausages, croque monsieurs, pancake stacks and more. This menu is elite.

Changing themes each month, as well as wheeling out their ‘disco’ brunch every Saturday, their parties (and believe us, they are) will set you back £45 (£48 on Saturdays), but they’re worth every single penny and you can even enjoy an alcohol-free good time for £38.

23. Dirty Martini – Deansgate

Once again, no list of bottomless brunch hotspots in Manchester city centre would be complete without the Deansgate cornerstone that is Dirty Martini. Some pass us a phone, we need another picture in front of them wings because the last 20 or so weren’t quite good enough.

Just as good during the day as it is for a night out, their bottomless brunch costs £37.50pp on Fridays and Saturdays but their Martini brunch from Sunday-Thursday is the cheaper option at just £30.


24. Almost Famous – Great Northern and NQ

We will take any excuse to head to one of the best burger joints in Manchester so, naturally, the fact Almost Famous also does bottomless brunch is ideal. Available Friday-Sunday from 12-3pm, you get the standard 90-minute sitting from £35pp.

Get ready for this: get absolutely ANY famous burger with winning or bacon bacon fries and chicken wings as well a free run at as much draught beer, cider, prosecco and cocktails as you fancy sinking. We call that heaven.

25. Foundry Project – NQ

Finally, the Foundry Project over on Thomas Street does a bang-up bottomless brunch with plenty of variety for just £36 per person.

Hash brown nachos, breakfast brioche, fry-ups, brunch burgers and more to go with prosecco, bellinis, mimosas, Aperol spritz or pints of Amstel. What more could you possibly want?
