Best Bloody Mary Bars

A Bloody Mary: the adult way of getting a daily serving of vegetables. In recent years, the cocktail has grown into an artistic and revered pairing with brunch, garnished with edible accessories that vary from restaurant to restaurant. Strong, salty and oh-so-refreshing, the Bloody Mary is key to hangover redemption.

While San Diego brunch bars can make a mean Mary, do-it-yourself Bloody bars are on the rise, nudging patrons to give it a go. For the picky, it’s a dream come true. A Bloody Mary bar pours possibility into a tall glass and tops it with the flair of your liking.
