Bottomless brunch: Slightly illegal in NYC, still going strong in Vegas

Last week the New York City Hospitality Alliance indicated it would begin enforcing a little-known law that bans establishments from offering an unlimited amount of alcoholic drinks during a set time period or for a set price.

Of course, this would be blasphemy in Las Vegas, and some New Yorkers found the practice pretty sacrilegious, too, taking their discontent over the banning of beloved drunch (drunken brunch) to social media. (Check out BuzzFeed’s “12 Dismayed Reactions To ‘Bottomless Brunch’ Being Illegal in NYC” for a few choice examples, like, “you will have to pry bottomless brunch out of my cold dead hands”).

The NYCHA has since clarified that the law only concerns unlimited drinks when “the service of alcohol is incidental to the event.” But really, if New Yorkers are so infatuated with downing multiple Bloody Marys every Sunday morning, they should be brunching in Las Vegas! There are more than a few fabulous options for getting your OJ-and-bubbly fix all morning long in the Valley. We suggest you start with these:

MTO Café

$15 bottomless mimosas—all day, every day (score!).

Simon at Palms Place

Kerry Simon’s signature brunch wouldn’t be complete without bottomless beverages—$20.50 for mimosas or Marys.

La Cave at Wynn

Bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys during the Sunday butler brunch, for an all-inclusive price of $48.

DW Bistro

$20 bottomless mimosas during Sunday brunch, which offers à la carte temptations like jerk chicken and waffles and blueberry white chocolate scones.

Border Grill at Mandalay Bay

$8 bottomless mimosas during Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Echo & Rig

$16.50 bottomless mimosas during Saturday and Sunday brunch.
