Where to Brunch and Party on Labor Day

Who says you can’t drink mimosas on a Monday?

All work and no play is not what Labor Day is about. Head out to one of the many Monday brunches around town—including a number of bottomless options—feast on unlimited crabs, find discount drinks, and more. If you’re barbecuing at home, check out our collection of ten delicious summer recipes (including a very boozed-up watermelon).

Brunch

Copperwood Tavern

4021 Campbell Ave., Shirlington

Both early and late risers can catch Copperwood’s brunch menu, which runs from 10 to 4. Light fare like egg white omelets and fresh oysters joins more indulgent eats (banana-beer pancakes, anyone?). 


EatWell DC restaurants

Multiple locations

All five EatWell restaurants, including Logan TavernCommissary, and the Pig serve Benedicts, mimosas, and plenty of bacon to cap off your holiday weekend.


Lavagna

539 Eight St., SE

Bottomless brunch runs from 10 to 2:30 at this Capitol Hill Italian spot, where free-flowing mimosas are just $12. Pair them with mascarpone pancakes, eggs Florentine, or pasta carbonara. 


Richard Sandoval restaurants

All of restaurateur Richard Sandoval’s DC eateries, including Masa 14, both locations of El Centro D.F., Ambar, and more, will offer their regular all-you-can-eat-and-drink brunches for Monday fun-day. 


Shake Shack

Multiple locations 

While not brunch per se, Monday is the last day to try the Shack’s Labor Day special: a fried, corn batter-dipped hot dog, and a peach pie concrete for dessert.  


Party

City Tap House

901 Ninth St., NW

Who needs to leave the city when unlimited steamed blue crabs can be yours in Penn Quarter? The beer-centric restaurants hosts an Old Bay Day Party from 11 to 5 with endless crustaceans, jambalaya rice, corn, and more ($35 per person). Drinks are priced separately, and range from a bottomless bloody bar ($18) to draft brews. A corn hole tournament is also in the mix.  


FloFest DC

2700 Martin Luther King Ave., SE

Jazz musician Marcus Johnson, who’s also behind Flo Wine, launches the first FloFestDC on Monday. The food, wine, literature, and music festival runs from 10 to 6, with tickets starting at $45. 


The Gibson

2009 14th St., NW

Call it a brunch and barbecue rolled into one. The 14th Street speakeasy swaps its moody decor for a live music-filled barbecue party from noon to 8, hosted on the back patio. Tickets are just $10, and include burgers, hot dogs, and barbecue chicken (boozy popsicles and cocktails are priced individually). 


Town Tavern

2323 18th St., NW 

Literally go to Town in Adams Morgan for their Labor Day Staycation, which culminates on Monday with $3 bottled beers, $4 rails, $5 drafts, and half-price appetizers all day until 9.
