Champagne brunches are a dime a dozen around Singapore. Nearly every hotel hosts one each weekend, promising a food and drink-riddled, adults-only afternoon for maximum indulgence. Nothing spells hedonism like drowning yourself in food and quality bubbly.
It’s almost sacrilegious to think champagne isn’t everyone’s drink of choice, but that’s true. To cater to the minority, there are a number of haunts around Singapore that offer booze brunches for the weekend, with liquid buffets that include beers, wines, and cocktails. Some even offer the option of DIY-ing classic brunch tipples like Bloody Marys, or mojitos. These come paired with mounds of glorious food.
Here are 5 of the best booze brunches you can indulge in this weekend. Treat yourself, you deserve it.
Manhattan was the first in Singapore to launch a cocktail brunch for adults only. Read: No screaming children. There’s a make your own Bloody Mary station, with a massive variety of hot sauces and toppings to construct the savoury cocktail with. Aside from enjoying fresh seafood and tapas, the brunch has steaks, sliders, and other American-style bites to wolf down. Most of the creative desserts at the Manhattan buffet are laced with alcohol, giving you a much appreciated double dose. The bar also has one of the most impressive selection of American cheeses to enjoy with any of their house cocktails. Free-flow, of course.
This brunch is held from 11.30 am to 3.30 pm every Sunday, with free-flow craft cocktails, beers and wines, priced at S$150++ per pax.
