Karaoke, quizzes and deals: Why UBK is the MVP for a great time in JLT
Sponsored: Oh, and their house package brunch is just Dhs189…
UBK is one of JLT’s most fondly-regarded, longest-serving, best-equipped entertainment venues, and it’s been pouring great times, perfect pints, strong snacking classics and all the vibes for over a decade now. There’s no sign that its merry-making mission is slowing down, quite the opposite in fact – the current lineup of weekly events, attractions and offers feels like its strongest yet.
These are just eight simple reasons why UBK, is one of the first names on the team sheet when it comes to living your best Dubai life.
The karaoke room
Yes, this officially What’s On-approved and Country Roooooooads-tested facility is undoubtedly UBK’s secret weapon. The massive lounge can fit up to 20 people at once, ensuring your performances will always get an audience, an encore, and choir-level backup singing. It genuinely is one of the best places in Dubai to sit back and watch Barbara from accounts belt out an absolutely killer version of Total Eclipse of the Heart. Where were you hiding that Barbara? Pair your midweek harmonising with unlimited drinks packages from Monday to Thursday, at Dhs149 per person for two hours of bottomless sips, or Dhs199 for the same deal with four bites.
All the single ladies, all the attached ladies, all the ‘it’s complicated’ ladies, in fact, all ladies over 21, regardless of relationship status – are invited to head on down to UBK on Tuesdays (6pm to midnight), for five houses bevvies/a bottle of sparkling wine and 30 per cent off food, for just Dhs99.
Quiz and game night
Hosted by DJ Darryl Rees, the grand UBK quiz night takes place every Wednesday (8.30pm to 10.30pm), and with games of skill alongside trivia, throws down a challenge to your brain and your brawn. Of course, there are big prizes up for grabs with first place picking up Dhs500 F&B voucher; second place gets a Dhs250 voucher; and even a bronze medal earns you freebies – a bucket of beer or bottle of wine on the house. Phones away gang.
Every Saturday between 12.30pm and 4pm, UBK hosts an epic sort of party brunch with all the usual nibbles and tipples (Dhs189 house, Dhs249 cocktails and bubbles). You also get access to the fun zone arcades and the karaoke room, and if its your birthday and you’re brunching with mates – you get your brunch for free.
But the part doesn’t have to stop there, not at UBK. After brunch packages allow you to hit snooze on the cab ride home with 5pm to 8pm unlimited drinks for Dhs169 (and with bites for Dhs199).
Whether you’re down for watching the big match, or just hanging out with your tribe, day two of the weekend holds more golden good times at UBK. Their three-course meal comes with three hours of free-flow beverages for Dhs169 (midday to 5pm).
Paws and play
On Sundays and Mondays you can bring a furry plus one to the outdoor, climate-controlled, grass-floored tented terrace (midday to 5pm) and enjoy 30 per cent off drinks and food.
Game is on
Whether you’re pinning your happiness on what happens on the football or rugby pitch, at the cricket crease, or around the F1 track – you can catch all the big game action on UBK’s big screens, with even bigger deals on drinks and dining. It’s big is what we’re saying. The team sheet of offers includes food deals from Dhs89; and beverage offers starting at Dhs36.
