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.
