Dallas' Best Spots To Imbibe In A Liquid Breakfast

Because bloody marys totally count as a breakfast food.

View as Map

Drinking before noon is, in most instances, not acceptable, but brunch is one of those wonderful rare exceptions where it's totally okay to have a few (or several) cocktails before the clock strikes twelve. And fortunately, there's plenty of places to get your early-morning drink on in Dallas.

These nine breakfast cocktails may not be considered part of a balanced breakfast, but they'll definitely satisfy, whether you're in need of a healthy, energizing (and boozy) sip or a little hair of the dog that bit you.

Anvil Pub

Copy Link
Anvil Pub doesn’t exactly have the highest opinion of brunch, but their F*@k Brunch cocktail offerings are worth getting up for. The bloody mary, garnished with an entire burger slider, pickles, salami, shrimp, and even more extravagant garnishes, is an obvious choice.

Henry's Majestic

Copy Link
Barman Alex Fletcher has created a special menu of brunch cocktails for Henry’s Majestic, and they’re all worth trying at least once. Definitely try the Coco Puff Milk Punch, a grown-up version of that delicious leftover cereal milk made with cocoa reduction and cognac. Hangover victims should go for The Cure, a shot of jalapeno-bacon infused bourbon mixed with Fletcher’s bloody mary mix, egg, and a healthy splash of lager.

Ida Claire

Copy Link
Mint juleps are a classic (and classy) brunch pairing, and Addison’s Ida Claire has a number to choose from. Try the Tobacco Peach, mixed with bourbon, tobacco syrup, and peach syrup, if you’re looking for a refreshing sip. If that doesn’t strike your fancy, split a bowl of Ida Claire’s Scarlet Letter punch, made with gin, hibiscus tea, and lemon.

Libertine Bar

Copy Link
From 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, you can sip mimosas on the cheap at Libertine. All champagne cocktails, including the bar’s mimosa, kir royale, poinsettia, and bellini are just $2.50, which means that you can sip several fancy dranks for less than the cost of one craft cocktail at most other establishments.

Meddlesome Moth

Copy Link
At the Moth, you’ll find more than just your basic bloody marys and mimosas on the brunch cocktail menu, but those are available too. Try the Terpsichorean Milk Punch, a blend of milk, good bourbon, and vanilla over ice, or one of the bar’s weekly rotating mimosas infused with seasonal fruit.

Public School 214

Copy Link
This Uptown bar and restaurant focuses mostly on their beer program, but don’t sleep on the cocktails. Try the Beetox, mixed with fresh beet juice, gin, and orgeat syrup for a convincingly healthy cocktail, or drink your breakfast and indulge in boozy root beer float.

Sundown at Granada

Copy Link
Sundown at Granada’s focus on local, organic ingredients also extends to their boozy brunch cocktail menu. If you’re feeling particularly healthy, order up the Vegan Green Drink, a blend of kale, banana, mint, berries, and agave and spike it with a shot of vodka. Otherwise, stick with Sundown’s stellar bloody mary, made with a savory housemade mix, or a basic mimosa.

Ten Bells Tavern

Copy Link
Ten Bells Tavern’s brunch may be one of Dallas’ best kept secrets, and it’s definitely worth stepping outside of your brunch bubble. Drink your breakfast on the cheap with one of Ten Bells’ $3 screwdrivers, mimosas, and a killer bloody mary.

The Woolworth

Copy Link
Day drinking can get expensive, but not if you head to The Woolworth. Carafes of mimosas or sangria will only set you back $16, and they’re strong enough to ensure that you’ll probably need to take an Uber home.
