Dubai's Most Enjoyable Brunch Spots

By Rachael Funk


In one of the world’s most extravagant destinations, overlooking an opportunity for indulgence would be a cardinal sin. In Dubai, brunch is no exception. Still a slightly risqué practice in the United Arab Emirates as only non-Muslims can drink alcohol, brunches are an all-inclusive, multi-hour event held weekly at hotels citywide on a weekly basis where people gather to eat, drink, and mingle. Often, an entry fee will get you into the party where you can enjoy great views, a lavish spread of breakfast food, and bottomless drinks. Here are some of Dubai’s most enjoyable brunch spots!
