Who doesn’t love to pair some bacon and eggs with a loaded bloody mary? If you can’t get enough boozy brunches, don’t miss the Brunch and Bloody Mary Festival in Jacksonville, Florida on June 6th. The festival will be filled with bloody mary stations, tastings of breakfast and brunch favorites, over a dozen food trucks and popular restaurant vendors, and a mimosa bar with a variety of juices. Along with all these tasty treats, enjoy live art installations, local crafters, live music, and even more entertainment.

In the meantime before the Brunch and Bloody Mary Festival, check out the top five places in Jacksonville to grab a delicious brunch with your favorite booze.

Hamburger Mary’s

Sometimes going out can be such a drag. But at Hamburger Mary’s, the drag is the best part. As you enjoy your delicious brunch, watch gorgeous drag queens enter the stage and give you the show of your life. Eat some French toast, and be sure to order a one-of-a-kind bloody mary. The bloody mix is made in-house, and your drink is filled with toppings that you can customize however you’d like. Grab some tickets to Hamburger Mary’s Sunday Drag Brunch, and get ready to have a fabulous time.

Florida Cracker Kitchen

Florida Cracker Kitchen boasts fine Southern cooking and delicious cocktails. They cook fresh loaves of bread daily, along with ooey-gooey handmade cinnamon rolls. As you admire the Southern charm of this local eatery, sit back and sip on your customized bloody mary. No matter how you like it, build your own to perfection, and spend your Sunday morning the best way you can.

Black Sheep Restaurant

If you love getting a little bit more dressed up and having a bougie brunch, check out the Black Sheep Restaurant. This upscale eatery whips up your breakfast favorites, while also introducing an Asian flair to some of their dishes. You can enjoy a traditional eggs Benedict with your bloody, or you can try an Asian dish like the Korean short rib entree. No matter how big your group is, everyone will be able to find something they like.

Hoptinger Bier Garden & Sausage House

When you’re in the mood for a big build-your-own bloody with add-on toppings like jalapeno poppers, sliders, corn dog bites, chicken wings, and many more, you can expect a perfect cocktail and snack all in one at Hoptinger Bier Garden & Sausage House. But don’t get too full on their drinks, be sure to check out their brunch menu, too. They offer signature breakfasts and spin-offs of Southern classics like a chicken donut, their version of chicken and waffles.

Uptown Kitchen & Bar

If you’re looking for a completely loaded bloody mary, look no further: Uptown Kitchen & Bar has you covered. These cocktails are no joke. Try the “Uptown Uptopia Bloody Mary” that comes with bacon-wrapped shrimp and all the fixings. The bloody marys aren’t the only thing fully loaded here either. Their brunch menu is stacked with your favorite entrees, and they don’t disappoint. One Yelp reviewer said, “...this restaurant was an explosion of gluttonous magic.”
