WHERE TO GO IN DUBAI & ABU DHABI FOR BRUNCH WITH LIVE MUSIC

Welcome to our guide of the best brunches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi! Whether you’re a foodie, music lover or just looking for a fun and relaxing weekend activity, these brunches have something for everyone. Join us for an unforgettable weekend brunch experience in the UAE!

Let’s get into it…….


The All New – Al Qasr Brunch

One of Dubai Classics. Elegant, unhurried foodie feast with live music & free-flowing drinks at The Al Qasr Brunch by Jumeirah Al Qasr. Located across Arboretum and The Hide outlets, guests can expect a decadent feast with live music and unlimited food and beverages.

Arboretum, the all-day dining restaurant at Al Qasr and the main stage for brunch has had a fancy facelift. Inside it’s modern, with appealing, spacious booth seating and stained-glass dividers doing away with that hotel restaurant feel. But outside is the draw here and not just because of the unbeatable Burj Al Arab views. Wrought iron chairs with thick pillows and enormous fringed cream sunshades invite you to while away your afternoon.

High-quality entertainment is always present. Depending on the time of the year you can expect live bands, DJs and dancers and during the hot months, you can expect live singers, roaming musicians and DJs. Classy fun all year round, making this brunch an institution in Dubai since the late noughties.

AED 450 (soft drinks), AED 550 (house beverages), AED 750 (bubbly). Every Saturday 1pm-4pm.

Set to the tunes of a live DJ and musician, Netsu Brunch will offer an unprecedented culinary experience in a one-of-a-kind Kabuki setting or on the expansive outdoor terrace.

The brunch is priced at AED 450 per person, inclusive of house beverages. Diners can upgrade their experience by opting for the Sake and Champagne package, available upon request.

Rockfish – Al Naseem Hotel

With a beachfront setting, a four-course menu of beautifully fresh seafood, and a view of the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah – the Saturday brunch at Rockfish ticks a lot of boxes.

Mediterranean classics are the order of the day here, including a crudo menu offering highlights such as yellowfin tuna and a chilled seafood platter. Saffron arancini, orecchiette (nicknamed “small ear” pasta) and fresh monkfish with salmon eggs are other show-stopping dishes you should look out for. If you have any room left, Rockfish’s signature tiramisu and strawberry pavlova are a must. Soak it all up to the sounds of the uber-talented Angel Tsami, while she roams and enchants guests with her beautiful voice and amazing playlist.

AED 495 (soft), AED 695 (house), AED 895 (bubbly and fine grape). Every Saturday 1pm-4pm
