If ever there’s a year where we should start getting excited about Christmas Brunch nice and early, it’s 2020. Ditch the humbug, embrace the Christmas spirit and start getting excited about pressies, socially-distanced Christmas parties and eating and drinking our own body weight.
And top of that list for us is Christmas Day brunch. Because why would you seriously do anything else?
The good people at the JW Marriott Marquis have come up with four different brunches (and one inspired turkey takeaway option!).
So whether you want a laid back party vibe, a seriously foodie affair or a family-friendly day out, they’ve got you covered on December 25. And you can sit back and enjoy the day and look forward to a better 2021 with a smile on your face and round three of dessert on its way!
Festive Wanderlust Brunch
Wanderlust is already one of Dubai’s best brunches, so you know they’re going to take it up a level for Christmas Day. And with 11 live cooking stations, you can literally eat your way around the world with plenty of festive classics. We’d recommend starting with #SomethingCiao at the Little Italy corner before stocking up on Nathan’s festive Hot Dogs. It’s then all about the turkey and all the trimmings! And music curator and DJ Adam J will be on hand to deliver the perfect festive beats from start to finish.
AED425 per person including house drinks, 1-4 pm.
Festive Brunch at Bridgewater Backyard
Make the most of the brilliant outdoor weather at Christmas with the Bridgewater Backyard Brunch. The family-friendly festive brunch offers stunning Dubai Canal views but you might have to take your eyes off the food first. With gourmet comfort food, live music and free-flowing drinks, it’s the ideal way to celebrate. Oh, and kids below 6 eat for free which is a Christmas present the parents can definitely get on board with!
