Bottomless brunch satisfies a very specific desire. And whatever your drunk brunch requires, we want you to know that we support you. Whether you just want to day drink, have mimosas at a “virtual” buffet, or just swirl a Bloody Mary with the comfort of knowing that you can have as many as you want. These six restaurants have heated outdoor seating, and great bottomless specials to go with it.

When we think “bottomless brunch,” Hub 51 immediately comes to mind. It’s the type of large, River North restaurant we expect to offer unlimited mimosas. The good news is that the food is pretty good, they serve brunch Wed-Sun, and have a heated and covered sidewalk patio. Order things like brioche French toast or breakfast tacos, and be prepared to take a long booze-induced nap later.
The Deal: Bottomless mimosas and bellinis for $28.
Park & Field now has a “virtual” buffet to go along with a $45 unlimited drink package of Bloody Marys, mimosas, rosé, and beer. What’s a virtual buffet you ask? You fill out an order form of all the brunch dishes you want (like waffles, omelettes, charcuterie, benedicts) and the kitchen plates it for you. Plus, the heated patio has lots of tents, Adirondack chairs, fire pits, and a camper-turned-bar.
The Deal: $45 buffet with bottomless Miller High Life, Bloody Marys, rosé, mimosa, and Modelo for an extra $40.
We only ever go to this Italian restaurant in Lakeview for two reasons: the fantastic patio (which is now heated and covered) and the bottomless brunch. The menu has things like chicken and waffles, crab cake benedict, and sweets like bananas foster French toast.

This Spanish spot in Fulton Market has multiple locations in New York, but this is their first location in the Midwest.

We didn’t see this one coming, but this great French restaurant in the Gold Coast has a pretty affordable ($19.95) bottomless mimosa special for brunch.
