Your DEFINITIVE Guide To Brunches In Dubai
Big ups if you can hit them all in one day
Brunches come in all shapes and sizes and it's almost impossible to pick a favourite.
The best we could do was narrow them down to a couple of categories and pick a few of the best.
Here are our top picks:
The All Rounder
Al Qasr at Madinat Jumeirah does class and fun all in one. This place has an unreal drinks selection, a room just for cigars (we're not massive fans of smoking but that's kind of old school cool) and a band that gets all ages dancing- that kind of great dancing you do early on at a wedding before things get out of hand.
AED 575 per person with bubbly, cocktails and house and grape beverages.
The Fancy Pants Brunch
This is the one you'll take your parents to. You may not be swinging off the rafters by the end but you'll be delighted you went for 'the experience'.
Enjoy the Emperor's brunch at the Zabeel Saray for AED 450 per person with grape and house beverages.
The wild one
If you're looking for a good knees up head to Warehouse at Le Meridien Dubai. The curtains close and the music cranks up so by the time 4 o' clock comes you may as well be in a night club. The crazy selection of cocktails with energy drinks as a base only add to the madness.
AED 299 per person with house beverages and sparkling grape.
From The Entertainer
Gaucho brunch is the best of the bunch coming from your Entertainer book. Great staff, the drinks keep coming and because it's not a buffet it some how feels like a more civilised affair.
AED 450 per person with grape and house beverages.
One for the kiddies
For adults, brunches are sheer indulgence but can imagine you were taken to one as a kid?!
Top kiddies brunch was a toss up between the Family Brunch at Nomad, Jumeirah Creekside and Bubbalicious at the Westin. Bubbalicious just inched the win. The acrobatic entertainers, live band and cinema mean the kiddies will be entertained all afternoon. (Just what you need on a Friday right?)
AED 550 per person with free flow sparkling
Kids under 6 eat FREE.
The one to take visitors too
Saffron at the Atlantis Hotel is impressive on all levels. It's location on the palm (so you tourist friends can 'tick' that off their lists), pretty unique building, and a food and and drinks selection that doesn't quit make it one of the best. For it's hefty price tag it may not be the classiest affair but it definitely has the WOW factor.
AED 495 per person including selected alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages
The one to chill out at
Iris at the Oberoi is your ultimate chilled out brunch venue. It runs from 1 til 6 so even the timing suggest a lazy affair. We suggest hitting this spot in cooler weather, enjoy the tunes and good food as you watch the sun go down.
AED 460 per person with premium alcohol
The one with the best value
For a brunch in the more traditional sense of the word head to Fraiche in JLT cluster Y. Feast on breakfast/lunch to your hearts content for a very reasonable price.
AED 75 per person not including beverages.
