Take a sip of these Bloody Marys in West Hollywood

As always, have a good time – but drink responsibly


A garden in a glass. A breakfast in a tumbler. A classic; and yet always open to new interpretations. Yep, we are talking about that old hangover cure or best way to start the day––The Bloody Mary. From beef jerky rising out of one to another famed for a heavy dash of premium olive juice, there are plenty of outstanding variations around West Hollywood. We wouldn’t suggest trying them all in a day, but we would suggest attending at least one brunch while you’re with us … if only for the Bloody Mary.

Jones

Former Jones Hollywood Bar Manager Eric Tecosky developed the recipe here, using his own brand––Dirty Sue Premium Olive juice––to add a kick. “The Jones Bloody Mary is inspired by my love of New Orleans,” he says. “They make some of the best Bloody Mary’s in the world.” His begins with vodka infused with olives and cocktail onions, before adding the perfect house spice mix. The secret ingredient is that Dirty Sue Premium Olive Juice. “It gives it a bracing briny flavor that’ll cure what ails you,” says Tecosky.

Cecconi’s

Thick, leather and brass barstools, warm wood accents and pastas made by-hand make Cecconi’s a perfect choice when you want a hearty, warming, Italian comfort meal. They make a proper, traditional-leaning style of Mary, that begins with Grey Goose and includes thick tomato juice, spiked with Worcester sauce, horseradish, celery salt, lemon and lime juice, black pepper, and a splash of tabasco. It’s offered any time of day, but during brunch, it’s an ideal add-on to a big plate of porchetta eggs benedict.

Connie & Ted’s

The force is strong with this one––olive brine meeting horseradish, celery and bay-leaf-infused vodka, plus a delicious house tomato juice. Michael Cimarusti has two Michelin stars for his food at this New-England-inspired seafood house, and the menu for brunch matches this hangover helper excellently. It goes swimmingly with that delectable Peeky Toe Crab & Lobster omelet, with herb beurre blanc and grilled bread.

Hamburger Mary’s

The Queen Burger here is a thing of legend, with melted cheddar and jack cheese, savory grilled onions, crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato and a helping of Thousand Island dressing. It’s best accomplice is by far the Bloody Mary, and the best time to try one is any day that there’s live entertainment. Luckily for you, that’s nearly seven days a week, from Drag Brunches to Bingo to Pub Trivia.

Taste on Melrose

If your love of a Bloody Mary stems not so much from the booze, but from the bounty of vitamins, fresh juice, pickles and herbal garnishes, then this is the one for you. Taste on Melrose is famed for the use of garden-to-table, organic California fruits, meats and vegetables. A nice day on the patio is complimented by their exceptionally appealing, tall Bloody Mary with ripe tomato juice, raw celery and fresh lime.

St. Felix

The Harry Mary is a cornerstone of what makes a happy hour at St. Felix so enjoyable. That and the crowd. Oh, and the beautiful patio. And the service. You get the idea. That signature “Harry Mary” comes with a house spice mix, a little kick in the form of Boru vodka and a cheeky garnish of beef jerky. Their Bloody Mary mix is so good, they began selling it. You can now depart with a full bottle to enjoy at home.
