The bars and restaurants are back open, the sun is finally shining in Manchester, and the beer gardens are full once again.

Life is good.

But to make things even better? Bottomless brunch.

Yep, the trend of eating a breakfast-lunch hybrid in the middle of the afternoon with copious amounts of alcohol is booming at the moment and, luckily for us, Manchester boasts an impressive choice of boozy brunch fixes.

Here’re some of our favourites…

KBOM Brazilian Bottomless Brunch

The Portuguese eatery, which can be found nestled within Hatch down Oxford Road, has launched its new ‘Domingo sem Fundo’ which, loosely translated, means ‘Bottomless Sundays.’

Every Sunday, guests can choose a starter and a main alongside bottomless drinks – both alcoholic and soft – for ninety blissful minutes at just £26.95 per person. Oh, and they serve sangria on tap. Need I say more?

The Pen & Pencil

The Northern Quarter bar and restaurant has decided to jump on the bottomless brunch bandwagon with their colossal ‘all you can eat, all you can drink’ deal.

For £40, you can order as much food and as much booze as you can (there’s definitely a competitive element there), though they are keen to stress that it should only be one drink and dish per person at any one time.

On the last Saturday of each month from 10am to 1pm, you can head down and take advantage of this generous offer.

La Bandera’s Spanish Bottomless Brunch

The Independent Spanish restaurant, located just a stone’s-throw away from the elusive Spinningfields, has officially launched its very own bottomless brunch menu.

The menu offers either two tapas for £29 or three tapas for £32.50, and provides guests with a massive ‘Tabla Mixta’; a selection of Spanish cured meats and cheeses served with bread.  The deal also includes ninety minutes of unlimited Cava refills.

It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

Manchester's Finest Group

Louisiana-style fried chicken chain Popeyes has announced plans to open more restaurants this year, including a second site in Greater Manchester – which opens tomorrow, Friday April 26th.

The chain opened its 33rd UK site in Piccadilly Gardens in October last year, which proved an instant hit with visitors forming queues along the street and around the corner just to sample its classic Southern fried chicken.

Regular customers have learned to take early lunches to avoid the rush as it fills up with hungry people every day.

Manchester’s Finest Group

Now its new drive-thru, located on Bury New Road, is opening tomorrow, Friday April 26th, with both the doors and lanes officially opening from 11am.

Greater Manchester and the North West’s first drive-thru location, the restaurant will mark the brand’s 11th opening in 2024 and 47th site in the UK.

And of course, they’re giving away FREE chicken on opening day, with the first three people queuing both on-foot and in cars winning free Chicken Sandwiches for a whole year.

As well as that, the first 25 customers in both queues will also be rewarded with a free Chicken Sandwich and exclusive Popeyes merchandise.

Popeyes UK

You’ll have to get there early if you want to be one of the first three, however, as fans queued for more than 16 hours when the Piccadilly Gardens site opened last year.

And from Saturday, April 27th, you’ll also be able to grab breakfast at the new restaurant.

The ‘Brekkie’ menu features British Breakfast classics with a New Orleans twist, like the Big Cajun Breakfast Roll, Cajun Hash Browns and Nutella-topped buttermilk biscuits.

Breakfast will be available until 11am every day, and will even include a Bacon Roll Meal for just £1.99, which includes a Bacon Roll, a Hash Brown and a drink.

Popeyes UK

For those who have not yet had the pleasure of sampling Popeyes’ crunchy flavoursome goodness, its menu features classic offerings like the Chicken Sandwich, with signature 12-hour marinated chicken and original Southern biscuits and gravy. 

Additionally, a variety of side dishes like mac & cheese, mash with Cajun gravy, and original biscuits will be served, alongside milkshakes in various flavours including vanilla, chocolate, mocha, and specialities like Oreo, Lotus Biscoff, and strawberry cheesecake.

What’s more, fans across the UK can now start their day with a Cajun twist – with Popeyes Breakfast Menu now available nationwide.

Manchester’s Finest Group

Tom Crowley, Popeyes UK Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Following the success of our Manchester Piccadilly restaurant, we are thrilled to bring our newest Popeyes to Bury New Road, marking our third restaurant in the North West.

“Our new restaurant will also be a Drive-Thru, meaning customers in Greater Manchester can enjoy our Famous Louisiana Chicken by dining in, via the Drive Thru lane, or by ordering online for kerbside collection.

“Our most recent openings have been some of the biggest to date, not just in the UK but for Popeyes globally, and we’re confident that Bury New Road will be just as popular.”

If you fancy winning free Chicken Sandwiches for a year, but don’t have time to queue up outside the new restaurant, then keep your eyes peeled on our Instagram tomorrow, Friday April 26th, as we’re going to be running a competition where you can win just that!

T&Cs: Offer entitles the holder to 3 free Chicken Sandwiches per week for 52 weeks. The 12 months starts on receipt of the email containing the first 3 links. Available in any Popeyes Louisiana Chicken UK restaurant, only on our Classic or Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Non transferable, not valid in conjunction with any other offer. Offer is redeemable only when you order online for collection through our website. Over 18s only.
