Known for its vibrant and busy nightlife, Manchester’s plethora of cocktail bars and nightclubs are often seen as the best way to spend a weekend, with revellers looking to dance the night away, drink in hand. While we have nothing against a good night out, sometimes we like a different type of party - namely one that starts before lunch! In our opinion, getting your weekend started early is the way to go and there's no better way to do this than with a bottomless brunch. When it comes to Manchester's bottomless brunch, there are a tonne of great restaurants in Manchester to choose from for your next date or catch up with friends.
In recent years, weekend brunch has evolved from a simple meal between breakfast and lunch into an unstoppable phenomenon. Such is the popularity of weekend brunching that the old time restraints on when you can enjoy it have gone straight out of the window, with plenty of restaurants offering brunch late into the afternoon. Another development is the rise of bottomless brunch, where you can enjoy free-flowing alcoholic drinks such as prosecco or bloody Marys alongside your meal, typically for around 90 minutes.
If you're looking for a bottomless brunch in Manchester city centre, then we've got a whole host available for you to try, with menus ranging from classic breakfast fry ups and pancakes to globally inspired brunches which champion the dishes of Italy, Japan and various other countries. Some of the brunches featured in our list even offer bottomless food alongside your drinks, so you are really getting bang for your buck.
If you are planning to have some weekend fun in the near future, check out our pick of the best bottomless brunches in Manchester, which features a restaurant for every style, taste and budget. Happy brunching!
