A relatively new term, you may have no idea what bottomless brunch actually is. Firstly, it doesn’t mean ‘no pants’ so please make sure you’re fully dressed! Instead, the ‘bottomless’ refers to free-flowing booze served along with your brunch. Most bottomless brunches are a set menu and a set dining time, so be sure to book. This also means you have a limited amount of time to consume all the drinks! So, arrive on time feeling fresh, eat yourself silly and drink lots of water.
What is Bottomless Brunch?
If you want to make the most of your time at a Sydney bottomless brunch experience, there are a few ground rules to follow. Here are some bottomless brunch basics to get yourself in the right frame of mind.
How to Prepare for Bottomless Brunch
Just like a regular night on the town, planning your drinks is key to a good, head-in-the-toilet-bowl-free bottomless brunch. We recommend starting with the lighter stuff like mimosa and then working your way up to the more heavy drinks- don’t start with the negroni straight up! Also, be careful with mixing. We know there are so many delicious options served at most bottomless brunches it can be tempting to want to have them all! But, stick to one or two beverages as despite missing out on some yummy drinks, you’ll definitely feel better at the end of brunch in comparison.
1. Plan Your Drinks
There’s nothing worse than a pushy, impatient customer, so don’t be that person! Because bottomless brunch has a limited time window and it’s up to the waiter to pour your drink, there is the possibility of becoming impatient. We understand you want your beverages pronto, but keep in mind that waiters are doing their best and aren’t there to rip you off! To help them out, perhaps think ahead and ask for another drink when your current one is half full, so you’re not waving your arms at them impatiently while your glass sits there empty for precious minutes.
2. Be Nice to the Staff
Every bottomless brunch is different, so you can’t go in with any expectations. This is also why it’s essential to read the T&Cs, so you know exactly what you’re in for, to help you decide whether the cost is justifiable and to compare with other places offering bottomless brunch. For example, there will be somewhere the food is not included or somewhere there is only one beverage available. If you don’t like mimosas and this is all their serve, pat yourself on the back for planning ahead and perhaps consider dining elsewhere.
