Angelenos may not have invented heavy drinking at 10am with a side of bacon and eggs, but we've certainly perfected it. Throw a stone in Los Angeles and you'll likely hit a breakfast spot offering bottomless Bloody Marys with your pancakes (whole wheat, of course). But where should you go for the best boozing and brunching? These 10 LA restaurants serve the ultimate bottomless boozy brunch, from a rooftop perch with all-you-can-eat-and-drink to a charming French bistro with endless champagne and mimosas. Shake off last night's hangover, find yourself a designated driver and restart the party with these weekend hotspots.

The Churchill

  • Price band: 2/4

Brunch hours: Sat-Sun 11:30am-4pm
Bottomless: Mimosas

Big enough so that it rarely feels overcrowded and cozy enough so that brunch feels like an event, The Churchill is an on-trend gastropub—house-made pickles! LAMILL coffee! Edison bulbs!—at the center of West Third Street. Opened by the people behind The Hudson, tables fill up on weekends with brunchers Instagramming their decadent brioche French toast and dueling over the last bite of short rib hash and eggs. Another plus: The $15 bottomless mimosas on hand make it a solid spot to continue the buzz from the night before. During cooler weather, seats near the crackling fireplace are ultra-desirable.

Overland Café

  • Price band: 2/4

Brunch hours: Sat-Sun 8am-4pm
Bottomless: Champagne; two hour limit

This Culver City diner is the go-to spot for recession brunching at its finest. The $6.99 bottomless champagne special (supplement that with $5 carafes of orange juice to make your own mimosas) keeps the casual eatery packed with low-key locals. It's not uncommon to wait an hour or more if you're part of a big group. As glasses are emptied, the noise level definitely ratchets up a notch, making it feel like a neighborhood bar on game day. Cornbread waffles and huevos divorciados—a spin on huevos rancheros, with two different sauces—only appear on weekends; both are worth a try, along with fluffy pancakes and an array of Benedicts.

The Federal Bar

  • Price band: 2/4

Brunch hours: Sun 10am-3pm
Bottomless: Mimosas

NoHo’s favorite gastropub finally started serving a boozy brunch with $12 bottomless mimosas, an ample Bloody Mary bar and fresh fruit mojitos, not to mention their long beer list. Located in a former bank built in the 1920s, the brick walls and pressed copper roof tiles make this a cozy spot to spot to imbibe on an overcast day—just make sure that you sop up some of that booze with a selection from chef Shad Davis’ eclectic menu. There’s the Federal Benedict, an update on the traditional brunch staple with smoked trout, braised kale and a dash of harissa in the hollandaise, and the homey Sweet Potato Oatmeal Breakfast Pie—which, true to form, is like a little slice of home.

Zengo

  • Price band: 2/4

Brunch hours: Sat-Sun 11:30am-3pm, two hour limit
Bottomless: Bloody Marys, Mimosas, Bellinis, Sangria
Renowned Mexican chef Richard Sandoval’s take on the boozy brunch at Zengo is unlike anything that we’ve seen in LA: $35 buys you generous all-you-can-eat-and-drink privileges from its menu of Latin-fusion small plates and tasty brunch cocktails. This, of course, leads to some gleeful imbibing of drinks like the Lychee Bellini, the perfect light refresher for Zengo's rooftop patio surroundings. Though the restaurant, on the deck of Santa Monica Place, is just two blocks from the beach, views are of the Promenade—still, it’s a grand spot from which to sample innovative dishes like the Peking duck hash with plantains, Thai chicken empanadas and kaffir lime chilaquiles.

Edendale

  • Price band: 2/4

Brunch hours: Sun 11am-3pm
Bottomless: Mimosas
A fire station-turned-Silver Lake standby, Edendale draws equal parts Los Feliz families and the Eastside creative class (with considerable overlap between the two), who fill the sunny patio of this Spanish-style building. The brunch menu here offers a little something for everyone, with dishes that range from a full English breakfast—bangers, baked beans and all—to a crispy fried chicken and waffle. Oh, and let's not forget the booze. With the Silver Lake Reservoir just a few blocks away, you can safely order the bottomless mimosas ($20) and walk them off after brunch.
