1. Salt 7
32 SE Second Ave., Delray Beach. Call 561-274-7258, or visit salt7.com.
Why it's outrageous: Poppin' bottles and pricey punch bowls turn the restaurant into a nightclub by 2 p.m.
There's brunch, and then there's a Salt 7 brunch. Every Sunday since January 2016 the restaurant has been hosting a daylong boozy brunch party that's unlike anything else in the area. Known simply as "The Brunch," this midday meal's sole purpose is to provide a supercharged brunch bash with an alcoholic fervor ordinarily reserved for wee-hour festivities. In other words, it's nothing short of clubbing during daylight hours, available from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It starts with the biggest bottle of rosé you’ve ever seen; bottles of champagne popping left and right; a sea of sparklers; girls decked out in their finest club attire; and bass-thumping house music. Although reservations begin at 11 a.m., try to get there around 2 p.m. when the automatic curtains begin to block out all natural daylight, interior lights dim, the music intensifies, and jets of fog roll out to create a clubby vibe. Thirsty? Try any of the giant punch bowls perfect for sharing
