It’s time to dig out your stretchiest of pants (but also your fanciest), because one of the biggest brunches in Dubai is back for a one-off winter special – and this one is giving us all the Christmas feels.
Atlantis the Palm’s enormous Cirque de Cuisine is returning for “The Frozen Edition” – and thankfully it looks as though it’s nothing to do with the ear-wormingly popular animated movie.
Hitting town on Thursday December 5, this massive brunch will take place across The Avenues at Atlantis the Palm from 7pm until 11pm - a real night brunch. Four hours of unlimited grub and drinks will take place across nine of the resorts restaurants, and you can roam around between restaurants however you choose. There’s going to be live entertainment and performances throughout the resort, with each area offering something different.
There’s going to be a giant wreath arch constructed at the entrance, with ribbons, bells and various other decorations with which are famously used to deck the halls (how are we already talking about Christmas?).
Christmas trees, snow-capped street lamps and fairy lights, and a massive choir singing Christmas carols will also be on for the night to get you feeling all warm and fuzzy with festive larks.
Nine restaurants will take part, with the resort’s signature outlets open exclusively for brunch ticketholders. You’ll be able to eat at Nobu (where you can enjoy the tunes being played out by a live DJ and electronic violinist), Hakkasan, Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen, Ronda Locatelli, Seafire and The Lost Chambers Aquarium courtesy Ossiano Chef de Cuisine.
You’ll be able to get early-bird passes to the brunch for Dhs495, which includes the unlimited grub and drinks package plus entry to the after-party at Wavehouse, which will run on through from 11pm until 2.30am. Tickets are available via dubai.platinumlist.net.
It’s time to get Christmassy.
From Dhs495. Thu Dec 5, 7pm-11pm (after-party 11pm-2.30am). Atlantis the Palm, Palm Jumeirah, dubai.platinumlist.net.
