Nothing completes a brunch like that perfect Bloody Mary. Fortunately for Atlantans we've got a tremendous offering of these potent brunch cocktails. Here's your guide to the best Bloody Marys in the A. 

  • Alon’s – Get the Saki Bloody Mary, which provides a unique variation on a popular brunch libation. Made with Japanese rice wine and garnished with your favorite veggies, you’ll be back again and again for this one.

  • Barcelona Wine Bar – The perfect location for the beverage connoisseur, Barcelona Wine Bar's Bloody Mary includes lots of beautiful fixin's. 

  • Bone Lick BBQ – If you like spicy, get the Proud Mary, made with house hot pepper moonshine. It complements the spicy brunch dishes quite well. 

  • Dantanna’s – The Buckhead location has a large Bloody Mary bar, where you can put together the perfect Blood Mary to go with any one of the delectable brunch entrees like the oysters Benedict.  However, Dantanna's does make a killer custom Bloody Mary with pureed San Marzano tomatoes. 

  • Elbow Room – Like your Bloody Mary’s on the meaty side? The Elbow Room calls its Bloody Mary the Hail Mary; it comes with a bacon slice, meatball, pepperoni, salami, capicola, olives, jalapeño, lime wedge and a slice of stromboli. 

  • Holeman and Finch – You know this spot serves up some very creative cocktails, but you may not know how incredible the Bloody Mary is. It is so popular, the mix now comes bottled.

  • Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall makes its version spicy with St. George Green Chile Vodka and Charleston Bloody mix. It is great for sipping in Ladybird's new outdoor "Grove" area.

  • The Nook – While the food is average, people come here for the views of Piedmont Park and the humongous Bloody Marys. The behemoth drinks should be shared by two. The Nook's Bloody Mary is topped with meats, pickled items and more.

  • Portofino – This Buckhead spot takes custom Bloody Marys to a new a level. Fill out a card with your choice of items including vodka, salt and condiment selections, and you’ll have your custom brunch drink delivered to your table in minutes.  

  • Red Pepper Taqueria – The Bloody Mary, served during weekend brunch, pairs nicely with brunch dishes like the Buckhead Biscuit and Chilaquiles Fiesta.

  • Tupelo Honey Café – A newbie to Atlanta, and with quite tasty offerings, is Tupelo Honey Café. Get the “Queen Mary,” featuring  jalapeno/poblano-infused moonshine, pimento cheese-stuffed olives, grilled shrimp and maple-peppered bacon.

  • TWO Urban Licks – Get Proud Mary Ma – made with sriracha, hoisin, ginger wasabi, lemongrass -- or the Caprese, with 20-year balsamic, basil and mozzarella balls. How amazing does that sound?

  • Wahoo! Decatur Grill – Soju Bloody Mary (a customer favorite) is made with soju, pickled ginger brine, wasabi, bold & spicy mix, teriyaki-togarashi rim and pickled ginger.
