Brunch dreams come true at Cottonopolis, a converted warehouse space in the Northern Quarter. Given a twist, their version is called Red Snapper, and is a slinky mix of their own gin, tomato juice, siracha, and yuzu - and best of all - is topped with a tomato and bacon skewer.

Aussie brunch space, Federal is on hand with the tomato juice and a stick of celery when you most need a bloody mary.
