Because the party shouldn’t stop just because brunch does…

There’s something for everyone across Dubai’s legendary Friday brunch scene. Whether it’s a brunch with pool access, an endless buffet or lively party affair, Dubai serves it and then some on a Friday afternoon.

But what about after brunch? If you’re looking to keep the party going post 4pm, we’ve rounded up some of Dubai’s best after-brunch deals.

Maiden Shanghai

What’s the deal: Three drinks for Dhs100

Famous party brand Candypants has taken over upscale Chinese restaurant Maiden Shanghai for their weekly Friday brunch, ‘Dim Sum Disco’. But afterwards, there’s a great deal to be had with the ‘drunch disco’. Partygoers can enjoy three house drinks for Dhs100 from 4pm to 9pm every Friday at the stunning rooftop terrace after-party, with a side of epic skyline sunset views thrown in for free. Even if you’ve not been brunching with some of your mates, you’ll likely find them here after.

Candypants, Maiden Shanghai, FIVE Palm Jumeirah, 4pm to 9pm, Fridays, Dhs100. Tel: (050) 220 4638.


If your criteria for post-brunch partying is a stunning rooftop setting, SoBe is a brilliant option. Show your brunch wristband for a complimentary drink on arrival, and then enjoy three house drinks for Dhs99 from 5pm to 8pm.

SoBe, W Dubai – The Palm, Palm Jumeirah, 5pm to 8pm, Fridays, Dhs99. Tel: (04) 245 5555.


Secret Parties have recently launched their Secret Circus Brunch at Paru, and with it, they’ve brought a brunch after party to Bluewaters. Head here on Fridays from 5pm to 9pm and take advantage of 3 drinks for Dhs100 on the sunset-facing terrace. It’s a brilliant spot for sundowners coupled with great tunes, and relatively undiscovered thus far by brunchers who haven’t been partying at Paru.

Paru, Caesars Bluewaters Resort, Bluewaters Island, off JBR, 5pm to 9pm, Fridays, Dhs100.


What’s the deal: Five drinks for Dhs150

Hidden is one of Dubai’s most popular party brunches, and books up fast each week with partygoers. If you didn’t manage to bag a spot at their weekly Friday brunch, fear not, the after party is open to all and you’ll be able to get your hands on five drinks for Dhs150 from 4pm. It’s pretty much Downtown’s go-to party spot, so don’t be surprised to bump into plenty of people you know who’ve also been at neighbouring brunches.

Hidden, Treehouse, Taj Dubai, Business Bay, 4pm to 8pm, Fridays, Dhs150. Tel: (058) 827 2763.

Marina Social

What’s the deal: 6 drinks for Dhs150

If you’re looking for that massive, wild birthday brunch then We Brunch is definitely worth considering, with great music, food and a total party atmosphere. After their 1pm to 4pm brunch at Accents, the party heads up to Marina Social Bar where they do an awesome post-brunch package running from 4pm to 7pm where you’ll get 6-drinks vouchers for Dhs150. Prepare for a lot of dancing!

What’s the deal: 3 hours unlimited house beverages for Dhs199

If you’ve already spent the day at McGettigan’s regular brunch or are heading there after a different one, their Drunch package should satisfy your need to carry on the party. From 5pm to 8pm, take advantage of their post-brunch deal, where you’ll get unlimited house beverages for Dhs199. The same deal is on at the branch in Madinat Jumeirah, while their Trade Centre outpost offers unlimited drinks from 6pm to 9pm for Dhs190 on Fridays.

Lock Stock & Barrel

What’s the deal: Buy one get one free selected drinks

Lock Stock & Barrel have their own brunch on a Friday anyway, but even if they didn’t, it’s pretty much always guaranteed to be busy. They do buy one get one free on selected beverages in their happy hour deal which runs daily from 4pm to 8pm, and is especially busy as the post-brunch crowd roll in from around the Marina. There’s also half price pool for the same amount of time.

Lock Stock & Barrel, JBR, The Walk, Dubai, happy hour 4pm to 8pm. Tel: (04) 392 7120.

Mr Miyagi’s

What’s the deal: Three drinks for Dhs45

If you’re not booked in for one of the two ‘Wok & Roll’ brunches at Mr Miyagi’s, you can make your way to the bar-side of the split-level space from 4pm to 8pm and take advantage of their post brunch power hour deal where Dhs45 will get you three spirits and a mixer. Their second brunch finishes at 11pm, so it’s consistently busy from around 6pm, making it a brilliant choice if you’ve been brunching in Dubai Marina if the afternoon or evening.

Mr Miyagi’s, Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City, 4pm to 8pm, Fridays. Tel: 04 420 7489.


What’s the deal: Buy one get one free selected drinks

Q43 is a definite oldie but a goodie. The popular after work bar in Media One Hotel does an awesome buy one get one free drinks deal in their daily happy hour which extends right through the weekend, from 5pm to 8pm. They have an evening brunch on a Friday, too so it’s bound to be busy.

Q43, Media One Hotel, Media City, Dubai, happy hour 5pm to 8pm, Fridays. Tel: (04) 443 5403.

Cartel, La Carnita

What’s the deal: Four drinks for Dhs120.

The urban-cool La Carnita is a great spot to fill up on Mexican cuisine through the week, but did you know it’s also home to a secret, upstairs bar called Cartel? Head there on a Friday from 5pm and enjoy three drinks for Dhs100. It’s a less-busy and slightly calmer vibe than some of the city’s rowdier post-brunch parties, with some excellent tunes to tap your toes to.

Cartel, La Carnita, Intercontinental Dubai Marina, Dubai Marina, 5pm onwards, Fridays, Dhs100. Tel: 04 425 4030.
