(Official) Sunday Brunch Hours for 10 U.S. Cities

 In Uncategorized

Since 2016, New York City allows restaurants and bars to sell alcohol before noon on Sunday. While visiting Los Angeles, where alcohol sales begin at 6 a.m. any day of the week, we realized that across the country there may be an epidemic of cities not supporting boozy brunches before noon! The monstrosity! So we did a little research and found out exactly what time renters in 10 cities across America can start enjoying a refreshing mimosa on Sundays. 

Atlanta
The city loves brunching so much that they recently go their very own “Brunch Bill” that changed to 11 a.m. Thrillist even came out with a new and improved brunch list guiding us through the best of brunch in hot-lanta. Check out Buttermilk Kitchen for a classic ‘Southern Comfort’ brunch.

Boston
Bostonians can start pouring the bubbly at 10 a.m. Try Myers + Chang in South End and Puritan and Company in Cambridge. 

Charlotte
Citizens of this Southern town have a few morning hours to relax before popping a cold one. But Charlotte residents can start cooling off with a beverage at noon – just when the sun is hot enough to warrant an ice-cold drink. Head to Little Spoon in Myers Park or the Asbury in Uptown. 

Chicago 
Starting at 11 a.m., Chicagoans can make their way to their favorite booxy spot. We’ve heard good things about Dusek’s and S.K.Y.

Dallas
We’ve all heard the saying that “Everything’s Bigger in Texas” and we are here to attest to it. We take our brunch seriously. We are well-rested and ready to brunch Sundays at noon. Meso Maya Comida Y Copas, Company Cafe & Bar, and Street’s Fine Chicken are just a few of our favorites. 

Denver
Now we’re talkin’. In Denver, drinks start flowing at 7 a.m. They don’t waste much time, and we like that. (Curve ball! Denver bars and restaurants can serve beer starting at 5 a.m. on Sundays.) Hit brunch early at places like Devil’s Food in Wash Park or Snooze (pretty much everywhere). 

Los Angeles
In the City of Angels, drinks start flowing before the sun’s up – at 6 a.m. sharp. Get your brunch on at MB Post in Manhattan Beach and Animal in Mid-Wilshire. 

Nashville
They’ll let you drink ’till 3 a.m., but don’t expect to be served a mimosa before 10 a.m. on Sundays. ONce the doors open, get into ETC. in Green Hills or Loveless Cafe in West Nashville. 

Philadelphia
Philly will keep you waiting until 11 a.m. on Sundays to cure your hangover with the hair o’ the dog. That being said, this city likes to keep you on your toes. Here are some exceptions to the 11 a.m. rule:
Sunday Brunch: At certain restaurants, alcoholic beverages may be served with meals beginning at 9 a.m. on Sunday. 
Airport: At Philadelphia International Airport, alcoholic beverages may be served beginning at 7 a.m. on Sunday.
St. Patrick’s Day: When St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Sunday, alcoholic beverages may be served beginning at 7 a.m.

Got all the rules straight? Try out Day by Day in Rittenhouse or Maison 208 in Gayborhood. 

Phoenix 
Now Phoenix is a city we Angelenos can keep up with. Starting at 6 a.m. and running until 2 a.m., Phoenix residents have all day to enjoy their beverage of choice. Start your Sunday at The Gladly in Biltmore or The Welcome Diner Downtown.
