By including free use of their pool or beach, these beach clubs, hotels, and restaurants have given you yet another incentive to brunch (as if we needed one). So, although brunch may be the typical response to the inquiry “what are your plans for the weekend?” you may now also include “…get some lengths in.” Here are the top 5 venues in Dubai where you can have brunch with pool access.
1. Address Sky View
It’s scorching out there right now, and if you’re going to be outside, you’ll want to be near a cool pool. Combine your pool day with a delightful pool breakfast at Address Sky View’s The Restaurant. Pool access is available from 10 p.m. to 4 p.m., and brunch is available from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. It costs Dhs295 for meals and soft drinks and Dhs395 for food and house drinks. In the Glass Garden, a DJ will keep the party going all day.
The Restaurant, Address Sky View, Downtown Dubai, Fridays. Tel: (0)4 873 8888. addresshotels.com
2. Cafe Nikki At Nikki Beach Resort
Cafe Nikki’s Seascape lunch is a more laid-back event than the more boisterous shenanigans at Nikki Beach Club. A five-course menu delivered to the table is complemented by a multi-station buffet with fresh salads, cold cuts of meat, freshly baked bread, and pre-prepared seafood such as oysters, mussels, and huge prawns, all displayed on an ice mountain.
Seascape Lunch, Cafe Nikki, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa, Pearl Jumeira, 1 pm to 4 pm, Fridays, Dhs325 soft, Dhs435 house, Dhs655 champagne. Tel: (04) 376 6000. nikkibeachhotels.com/dubai
3. Fairmont The Palm
Seagull Bistro, located at Fairmont the Palm, will have you diving into shareable seafood platters, market-fresh fish, and grilled meats while taking in the stunning views of the Dubai Marina cityscape during their Friday brunch. The restaurant is immediately near to the beach, and customers may use it for free pre-and post-brunch activities.
