A loaded Bloody Mary is every bruncher’s dream come true. This is especially true if you’re curing a hangover of the night before. Snacking on all of the extra fixings while you wait for your actual meal to arrive is a necessity. It’s almost lunch. You didn’t eat breakfast. And you’re hungry. Brunch is a serious matter in Asheville, and brunch would be incomplete without a Bloody Mary. Here are 8 of the best Bloody Mary’s in town.





The Southern's Bloody Mary Baron Sunday's.


The Southern’s Bloody Mary Baron Sunday’s.

1. The Southern

You can’t beat the Bloody Mary Bar at The Southern in downtown Asheville. For $5 you’ll get your liquor-base of choice (vodka, tequila or beer), awesome fixings, great music, and an outdoor patio. The only problem? The Bloody Mary bar is only on offered on Sundays, starting at noon. (Hey, sometimes you want a Bloody Mary on a Wednesday, know what I mean?) The Southern, 41 N Lexington Ave, Asheville, 828-251-1777;

2. Sovereign Remedies

Sunday brunch at Sovereign Remedies, a vintage bar with new American fare, is a must and made better with a Sovereign Mary which consists of Vodka, a house made Bloody Mary Mix, accoutrement. Sovereign Remedies, 29 N Market St #105, Asheville, NC 2880;


Bacon anyone?

Bacon anyone?

3. Luella’s BBQ

Luella’s has a great BLT Bloody Mary. I think it would qualify as deliciously over the top. As the name implies, yes, you’re going to get a piece of crisped to perfection bacon. Luella’s Bar-B-Que, 501 Merrimon Ave., Asheville, 828-505-7427

4. Posana

At Posana, their version of the perfect Bloody Maria consists of smoky Mezcal and house mix. But, if you’re a traditionalist, they do indeed serve a good Bloody Mary perfect for brunch. This is one of the best I’ve had with jalapeño infused vodka and the perfect blend of spices. Posana, 1 Biltmore Ave., Asheville, 828-505-3969;




Carmel's version


5. Carmel’s Kitchen & Bar

Absolut Peppar vodka, house recipe mary mix, smoky-maple fire pickle garnish are what make up the Bloody Mary’s at Carmel’s Kitchen. Carmel’s Kitchen & Bar, Grove Arcade 1 Page Ave., Asheville;

6. The W.A.L.K.

According to one Redditor, The W.A.L.K. makes a killer one. “The Classic bloody…strong, not too thick/thin, spicy and tangy but not overly so, pickled okra.” The Walk, 401 Haywood Rd, Asheville, NC 28806;

Mayfel's Bloody Mary

7. Mayfel’s

Yet another Bloody Mary bar. (Yasss!) What’s not to love about making your Bloody Mary creation? Dress it up as much (or as little) with the fixings and spices. Mayfel’s, 22 College St, Asheville; 828-252-8840;

8. Tupelo’s

Garnished with Okra? Yep! Because it wouldn’t be the south without Okra. The Bloody Mary’s at Tupelo are delicious and popping with flavor. And if a classic BM isn’t enough…they also offer a Queen Mary, which is garnished with all the Bloody Mary fixings and a shrimp. Tupelo Honey Cafe, 12 College St., Asheville; 828-255-4863;

And, of course, a handful of other places around town are serving up their versions of the best Bloody Mary’s in town. These 8 just happened to be standouts.
