Lapita Brunch at Dubai Parks and Resorts

 “Life repurposed” may sound like an angsty Greta Gerwig movie produced by Fox Searchlight but the motto of this welcoming neighbourhood bar in City Walk, a corner of Dubai that is positively erupting with amazing places to hang out right now, feels appropriate. This refreshingly relaxed spot is ideal for post-work get-togethers or long weekend afternoons – take particular note of their wood-fired pizza specials on Saturday – and offers an immediate lived-in vibe that this shiny area definitely needs. With all those apartments in the hood, this has arrived right on time.
Where: La Ville Hotel & Suites, City Walk

Family Daycation Brunch
If you’re launching a brunch in a hotel in the middle of a theme park, it makes sense that every generation is catered for. This buffet-style Friday brunch is inspired by Polynesia but more importantly, comes with full pool, lazy river and kids club access. You know, if you’re done with roller coasters.
When: 1pm-5pm, Friday
Where: Lapita Hotel, Dubai Parks and Resorts

All American Brunch at Claw, Souk Al Bahar
The popular southern-style bar and barbecue restaurant in Souk Al Bahar has just repackaged its brunch with this new concept. The All-American brunch offers what they call a “deliciously gut-busting buffet-style menu” on Fridays, 12.30pm-4pm, and features seafood and carving stations, an elaborate dessert offering and great Americana tunes from DJ Graham.
When: 12.30pm-4pm, Fridays
Where: Claw, Souk Al Bahar
