Oh the 30’s! I’m loving you & we are just getting started! Look, I get it, everyday alive should be celebrated, but birth-days are special days & I’ve always felt they needed to be celebrated accordingly!
My 31’s snuck up on me with very little planning. I was in the middle of resigning from 1 job, and preparing for my new position. Seeing as Kuwait is a dry country, we needed to travel outside in order to brunch. Since Dubai is just a short plane ride away, I decided to gather a few friends and hit Dubs for a brunch!
My typical Brunch weekends are as follows: Thursday night –> Leave Kuwait. Arrive in Dubai for a chill night out, which usually doesn’t end up being chill (lol). Friday = BRUNCH, and that’s literally an all day activity. Saturday recover, and head back home to Kuwait in the evening. Easy!
By now Brunch in Dubai is an “in” thing. Everyone has favorites or preferences. Some people like to Brunch on Friday’s and some Brunch on Saturdays. I tried Brunching on a Saturday and I missed my flight home, so I definitely do not recommend it if you’ve got somewhere to be Saturday night. So with the hundred of options to choose from in Dubai Brunches, I opted for trying something new, and their marketing on IG looked good!
For my birthday this year I chose We Brunch DXB, which is located in the Intercontinental Dubai Marina. We paid the AED 399 p/person package that included Bubbles & everything else you wanted to drink, as well as the food. #Unlimited. This by far became one of my favorite brunches. It is hard to find a place that offers both good drink options AND good food, most places have 1 or the other, but We Brunch had both!
The music was on point, and since March is still nice outside we got to spend a lot of time outside on the terrace. They do birthday celebrations, so they send out a little crew of people to bring me a cake, do a confetti popper, and take some photos. Most brunches in Dubai are 12-4PM, and offer an “after party” but it depends on the place. My birthday brunch was LIT, we all had so much fun and the staff was so on point. It is highly recommended on my list of Favorite Dubai Brunches! Cheers to the amazing memories. Thank you for making me feel so special!
Here are my Favorite Dubai Brunches for 2018
- We Brunch DXB: https://www.webrunchdxb.com/ My review up top speaks for itself, but believe me, this Brunch is A LOT of fun. Its not to bougie, not to cheap. It is right in the middle and the vibes are A+. At the time of this post the prices are: AED 299 non-alcoholic, AED 349 house beverages and AED 399 for sparkling. Contact them directly for updated prices.
- Zero Gravity Brunch: (I prefer Saturdays): https://www.0-gravity.ae/ This Brunch is on a whole new level of fun & madness. The lunch buffet is HUGE, the food is mediocre, but it serves its purpose. The bar stands are plenty, the music is spot on and you have the option to chill pool side OR at the beach & the view is incredible. My advice is to get there EARLY as the day beds are fist come first serve. You also have the option to reserve day beds next to the pool that require a min-spent. At the time of this post, they have several booking options available but the regular booking is Ladies AED 249 and Fellas is AED 299. Contact them directly for updated prices.
- Saffron, Atlantis the Palm: (Friday’s). Saffron is one of the first Brunches I ever went to. I was with good people, it was our first brunch and we really didn’t know what to expect. It’s still one of my go-to’s because it really brings it to the table & the 16 bar stations are worth the cost. The food is not my favorite, I think it could be really improved, but lets face it, who’s really there to eat that much? The music is mixed, and they usually do these so people don’t get to rowdy (that’s what I think anyway). This is really good place to party and the brunch is usually sold out. It is a little more expensive than the others but it makes sense: You have approximately 220 different food dishes & 16 bar stations. I’m sure you’ll have a good time!
