So without further ado, here are 11 places for meaty bloodys in the Twin Cities.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Burger Jones

Start your day with a BJ Signature Bloody Mary. The cocktail is garnished with "lunch on a stick" which includes a beef stick, on a stick, stuck in your drink. Pro tip: opt for horseradish vodka.

Uptown Tavern

Copy Link
The Tavern House Bloody Mary starts with pepper-infused vodka and house-made bloody mix. But who cares what's in the cup when the skewer perching precariously atop the plastic cup includes a meat stick and a slider? Bro!

Icehouse

Copy Link
The Bloody Homer from Icehouse has gained national attention as one over-the-top bloody mary. It's a bacon-infused bloody mary, garnished with a skewer of candied bacon and a “bacon-bedazzled” mini-doughnut. Mmm, meaty.

Hell's Kitchen

Copy Link
The downtown spot is serving up the Bloody Hell. The mary is made with chipotle/orange-infused vodka, house-made bloody mix, and garnished with a pickle spear and a beef stick.

Union Restaurant & Rooftop

Copy Link
Union has two meaty bloody options: the Bourbon Bloody (bourbon and spicy tomato mix, garnished with a mini oxtail burger) or the Seafood Bloody (vodka or gin and Clamato, topped with shrimp, snow crab claw, and speck).

Ike's Food & Cocktails

Copy Link
The downtown food and cocktail spot keeps its bloody mary classic and well-garnished. Beside a celery stalk, pickled asparagus spear, skewer of pepperoncini, black olive, green olive, cocktail onion, baby dill pickle, and cheese you'll find a second skewer of chilled shrimp and stick of spicy smoked beef.

HauteDish

Copy Link
Take your pick of any of HauteDish's four styles of bloody mary but be sure to add the Chef's Skewer for $3. It comes with a selection of pickles, meats, cheeses, and, yes, a gosh darn chicken wing.

Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge & Tiki Garden

Copy Link
There are no meaty limits in designing a meat infused and garnished bloody mary at Suzi's build your own bloody bar. Well, except for the limits of fluid mechanics (e.g., displacement). Because science.

Republic

Copy Link
Another choose your own bloody adventure takes place for weekend brunch at Republic's build-your-own bloody mary bar. Mix up some booze with bacon, spicy chipotle, or house mix and then go ahead and skewer inappropriate amounts of meat as a garnish.

Finnish Bistro

Copy Link
The Bistro's mary starts with a seasoned tomato juice and dry sake. But there are meaty skewers to be added. There's the Hunter Stick--various meats and cheeses, and the Finn Stick--various meats, cheeses, and fish. In non-meat related skewer news, there's a grilled cheese slider stick option, too.

The Happy Gnome

Copy Link
Meanwhile, in St. Paul, there's more DIY goodness happening at the Gnome's bloody bar. Create your morning cocktail exactly how you like it: start with house-infused vodka, pick a mix, and then the meat garnishes. And in Minnesota tradition, knock back a Summit EPA chaser.
