Anywhere else in the world, brunch is just a big hearty meal that falls somewhere in between breakfast and lunch time. But in Dubai, brunch it’s another excuse to eat loads of food and party!
So even though ‘night brunches’ may technically not make any sense, Dubai’s love for eating and partying at any time of day explains why we have so many of them.
Here are seven Dubai night brunches to try, one for every day of the week.
Wednesday: Lucky Voice
The Friday brunch was such a hit, Lucky Voice has launched a second brunch on Wednesdays.
The Jukebox Brunch is designed for karaoke lovers, but instead of being confined to the karaoke pods, all the singing is done as one big crowd.
Every Wednesday night, there will be unlimited food and beverages, including finger-lickin’ good sharing plates – we’re talking about authentic Italian dough pizzas, tacos, sliders and even nachos!
So channel your inner Britneys or MJs, pick a song and take part in group sing-a-longs. Karaoke shy? Don’t worry, there are inflatable microphones for you too.
(Please note that this brunch will not take place this Wednesday due to Islamic New Year)
Wednesdays 8pm-11pm. AED 150 including soft drinks. AED 250 including house beverages. Lucky Voice – Grand Millennium Hotel, Barsha Heights
Thursday: Zero Gravity
Food, games and loads of dancing – The Social Club at Zero Gravity is a super fun way to end the week.
Every Thursday evening, this all-inclusive brunch includes multiple food and beverage stations, arcade games, table tennis, giant Jenga and Connect4.
