Best bottomless brunches in Singapore

Family reunions and get-togethers are best celebrated with healthy amounts of booze. We check out the top boozy brunches in town

MEATliquor SIN
1/8

MEATliquor SIN

Best for
A party with brunch on the side. This once-a-month boozer is a daytime event with live DJ music, all-you-can-stomach food and drinks – some dishes are limited edition experiments. Advanced bookings are a must. 

The drinks
Lots of beer, rosé wines, slushie drinks and sherbet cocktails, which are long drinks of tequila and rosemary. 

The spread
MEATliquor's greatest hits like the Dead Hippie, buffalo wings, deep fried pickles and mac 'n' cheese, as well as Neh Neh Popsicles to end the meal. There are also inventions like the HDB Chicken Tower burger filled with deep fried chicken breast, slaw, a hashbrown, cheese and Russian dressing. Diners will also get a 'Baddy Bag' with MEATliquor swag and a visor – 'because it's going to be bright outside when you leave,' says the crew.

The damage
$90 for food and booze, add $30 for champagne or unlimited shots.

2/8

Adrift

Best for
The post-party – or the pre-party. A solid soundtrack of deep house tunes lays down the rhythm for this 4-hour-long feast of David Myers' Asian-tinged dishes.

The drinks
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV, Bloody Marys, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot, Suntory Malt beer, watermelon mojito and soft drinks. Bartender Anand Reuben also gathers a selection of fresh fruit each weekend to turn into bespoke cocktails. 

The spread
A bounty of oysters, poke, prawns and more, as well as an array of cheeses and bread are up for the picking. Servers make the rounds offering small plates like furikake corn and smoked duck salad. Diners get a choice of breakfast-inspired inventions like the Adrift Benedict – onsen egg, bacon and miso hollandaise on vinegar-soured grilled rice cakes – ricotta pancakes with azuki bean ice cream, and crispy chicken and sweet potato waffles drizzled with maple-umeboshi syrup.

The damage
$158 with booze, $88 without.

Aura
3/8

Aura

Best for
Ladies who brunch. The sunlight streaming in from the museum courtyard beautifully lights up the Art Deco-inspired interiors. 

The drinks
Zardetto Prosecco, and white peach-flavoured Bellinis. 

The spread
Six starter items to share, including truffle pesto-glazed trofie pasta twirls, crab cakes with tomato salsa and ridged garganelli tubes with duck ragù. Pick from black cod, beef sirloin and quail legs with beetroot-stained orzo for your mains. And if you can find the space, there are three types of desserts, including an indulgent Bailey's-spiked hazelnut feuillantine. 

The damage
$98 for free-flow drinks. A booze-free option is available at $48.

City Hall
Colony
4/8

Colony

Best for
Big group catch-ups in a sprawling vintage-themed space. Book a long table or one of the cosy nooks to laugh it up with pals. 

The booze
Unlimited pours of Moët and Chandon Grand Vintage Blanc 2006, Moët and Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2004, cocktails shaken to order, red and white wines, and beers by the pint. 

The spread
Dizzying across seven stations. We're partial to the oyster selection (duh) and raw bar with meaty prawns and scallops on the half shell. The wok-fried rice, noodles, meats and fishes in the Chinese section are the surprising stars against the Sunday roasts and foie gras. And make sure to hit up early on cheese or you'll find yourself gathering crumbs and rinds by 3pm – they're that popular.

The damage
$188/adult with free flow drinks, $94/child (6-12 years old), $47/child (3-5 years old).

Promenade
Mitzo
5/8

Mitzo

Best for
Dim sum paired with cocktails. Mitzo's not going to serve you dim sum made with magic fingers, but the restaurant is cool, and you get to play bartender and shake up your own tea-infused tipples. 

The drinks
As many cocktails you can make, as well as a rotating line-up of cocktails like the Shiso Mojito, margarita with ginger, chilli and lemongrass, and the Singing Geisha with chrysanthemum syrup. 

The spread
Unlimited servings of dim sum from a list of 40. Specialties include a signature barbecue pork with a crunchy caramelised top, hangover-busting double-boiled soups, as well as more modern dishes like wild mushroom and truffle buns.

The damage
$118 for the food and drinks, or $68 just for the dim sum.

Zafferano
6/8

Zafferano

Best for
Brunch with a view. This semi-buffet, with sweeping views of the Marina basin, is designed to shore up memories of an Italian family dinner. 

The drinks
As much Prosecco as you can sip down – the selection changes at each seating – and champagne for a $30 top-up. 

The spread
Appetisers are seven sharing plates of items like charcuterie, live oysters, clam and mussel stews, and burrata. Second course is where things start to feel homelier, with servings of creamy saffron risotto, veal ravioli with porcini, and a gnocchi dish. Next, there are three mains – sea bass, spring chicken and pork belly – to choose from, before you adjourn to a dessert table of Italian favourites like tiramisu and panna cotta. 

The damage
$108 for Prosecco and $138 for champagne. Otherwise, it's $88 for four courses.

PS Cafe
7/8

PS Cafe

Best for
The wine fickle. Want a sparkly? How about a red or white? Why not have it all? You already love forking brunch at Ps Cafe's adults-only Ann Siang outlet, but booze makes the child-free escape sweeter. 

The drinks
A rich and complex Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco NV, Dal Zotto Pinot Grigio 2014, Dal Zotto Sangiovese 2013. 

The spread
Ps Cafe's genre-bending brunch plates like the Big Nihon ($28) with buckwheat noodles and soya-steeped salmon, Spicy Shakshuka ($26), and eggy Brunch Burger ($30).

The damage
Add $70 for the wines. Bottomless brunch is served in 3-hour stretches in two seatings.

The Line
8/8

The Line

Best for The indecisive. The Line's brand new chef de cuisine, Vincent Wong, has renewed a few of the dishes you'll encounter at the many different theatre kitchens across the restaurant.

The drinks Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut – a non-vintage that treads a balance between mineral and fruity flavours – Tiger beer, red and white wine, chilled juices, coffee and tea. 

The spread A brand new table of foie gras, paired ten ways with everything from figs to chocolate chips to yuzu. The butcher's station serves up all the Sunday roast you can stomach, including a tree trunk-like leg of wagyu crusted with mustard. The cheese selection has also grown to 30 in varying levels of appetising stinkiness.

The damage $158 per adult, $79 for kids under 12.
