Sponsored: Everyone’s invited to [u]bk’s big Saturday bonanza…

It’s firmly established as one of JLT’s best spots for laid-back get togethers with friends, with extended happy hours, ladies’ night deals and proper pub grub. And now [u]bk has added a trio of new deals to its Saturday offering, to ensure the fun doesn’t stop all day long.

It kicks off with the newly launched Retro Players Brunch, running from 12.30pm to 3.30pm every Saturday. Perch up at one of the benches in the garden, and settle in for three-hours of barbeque brunching with a side of retro gaming, free-flowing drinks and top tunes.

The epic new game zone features classic arcade games Mortal Kombat and Pac-Man, plus foosball tables, billiards, hops-pong and board games. Buddy up with your mates and compete with fellow brunchers, all in the name of friendly competition.

Of course you can’t forget about the food – and there’s plenty of that to go around. Guests can get their grill on with favourites off the smoker and grill, such as the 12-hour smoked BBQ beef ribs, beef brisket, 7-hours smoked chicken breast, beef steaks, chicken and cheese sausages, hot dogs, spicy fish en papillote and corn on the cob. There’s a selection of mains also available, like mac ‘n cheese and Thai green chicken curry and jasmine rice.

If there’s room left for dessert, guests can indulge in indulgent favourites like the brownie cheesecake, blueberry crumble, or a goey chocolate pudding.

Packages start from Dhs229 for one and Dhs369 for two for the house beverage package, or upgrade to the premium package for Dhs279 for one or Dhs469 for two.

But the party doesn’t stop just because the brunch package does, and the post-brunch party runs from 4pm to 6pm every Saturday, with happy hour drinks starting from Dhs33 and a live DJ spinning retro hits that will have you singing and dancing into the evening.

For those that prefer an evening drinks deal, [u]bk invites party people to drunch their way into the night with the 6[2]9 Drunch, offering three-hours of unlimited house beverages and bites for just Dhs215 per person.
