We’re feeling swanky this week so we’re taking you to Beverly Hills for brunch. We know what you’re thinking, there can’t possibly be a cheap boozy brunch in BH. Well, there is, and it sounds pretty amazing.
The Crescent Hotel launched their new “Hair of the Dog” weekend happy hour and their new brunch menu earlier this month, and we couldn’t love it more. They know exactly how to lure us in: a location not too far from us, a tasty menu (that includes sliders), and they’ve even thrown in some drink specials.

So, put on your finest weekend attire (this is Beverly Hills, after all) and head to the bar at the Crescent for brunch. If you’re feeling like something light, catch their “Hair of the Dog” happy hour which runs from 11am-1pm. During this time at the bar, score a small plate and brunch cocktail combo for just $12. On the menu: brunch sliders, stuffed peppers, and mini pancakes, plus some shmancy brunch cocktails like their heirloom tomato bloody mary, tangerine mimosa and a carrot and ginger ‘cure-all’. We have been looking for a hangover cure for years and can’t wait to put this one to the test.
If the above sounds too scant for your brunching style, don’t worry, they also have a full brunch menu that comes with some boozy deals of its own. The full brunch starts at 10am on the weekends and runs til 4pm. Our menu picks: a hangover burrito (with turkey sausage, french fries – yes, french fries, cheese, eggs, and salsa), and the waffle panini (with bacon, fig, and brie). To satisfy your alcoholic tendencies, you can order punch bowls (reminds of us college!) of cocktails – pick from a spiked lemonade, red or white sangria, or the intense sounding Triple XXX . The bowls are $30 a pop and meant to serve 6, but we think we’re thinking maybe one for every 2-3 people, ’cause that’s how we roll.
