Hip Hop Boozy Party Brunch in NYC
Most of us consider ourselves weekend warriors. We work the grind Monday through Friday, the 9 to 5s day in and day out. When it comes to our personal time and the plans we make, well, we want to make the most of them. That’s why we are very much in favor of a New York City boozy brunch on the weekends.
Add some amazing grub, drink specials, lit beats and, of course, some eye candy all around and we’re talking a spectacular weekend well spent. Check out these amazing urban brunches made to make you look forward to waking up after a night spent at the clubs.
Angel of Harlem
2272 Frederick Douglass Blvd., Harlem, NY
Each weekend, this lively and enlivening eatery turns into the best brunch part. Featuring specials such as throwing down a Jackson for an extra hour and a half long unlimited mimosa bar and rum punch is well worth it. Word to the wise — call in advance (we’re talking days) for a reservation. Angel of Harlem is popular, so don’t get stuck waiting for a table when the rest of the patrons are walking on by with reservations. Enjoy a live DJ that usually plays Hip Hop or R&B while you nosh on some spectacular shrimp and grits. The atmosphere is very upbeat and modern — you’ll likely be a returning patron frequently.
2153 Frederick Douglass Blvd., NY, NY
If you’re into day parties, then you can absolutely do a little walk down the street from Angel of Harlem to the Harlem Tavern where a wicked little boozy brunch party is also happening. The food is a bit more on the fancy side, but they make a mean Seafood Gumbo as well as a good Codfish Po’Boy sandwich with cod. Both are a part of their Brunch Prix Fixe menu at $15.95. Much less expensive than PS450 or Angel of Harlem, which is helpful if you want to party, but may be on a budget since, you know, it’s NYC and all. Harlem Tavern’s brunch doesn’t include unlimited cocktails, just one, but still, a good place to chill on the patio while listening to music and enjoying a cocktail — a day cap maybe — to ensure you’re home in time for work come Monday.
450 Park Ave South, NY, NY
Here’s the deal with PS450… It’s really fun, but can be a little stuffy with their rules. For example, they require a 50 percent deposit for reservations (which does apply to your bill), but you need a reservation AND you don’t have a choice of paying for the Endless Brunch Prix Fixe menu. Also, they are kind of sticklers on dress code. Okay, so move beyond all of that and it can be really fun! Plus, we’re talking two hours of unlimited Belinis, Shock Top, Bud Light, Bloody Marys and Mimosas. The food is really good and the weekend brunch part is amazing.
