6-hour brunch returns to McGettigan’s this month

JLT branch celebrates seventh birthday with massive brunch, music and prizes

Get ready for the return of a monster brunch at McGettigan’s, as the Irish bar’s JLT branch brings back its 6-hour long bash this month.

Residents of Dubai Marina and surrounding neighbourhoods are in for a treat when the iconic bar (which has recently been voted the best Irish bar in the world) celebrates its seventh birthday on Friday November 17. McGettigan’s drops in the odd six-hour bash here and there, on special occasions, and when it does it’s a party worth heading to.

On this occasion, the six-hour brunch will be filled with unlimited house beverages, plus dishes from the a la carte menu and live serving stations including a seafood buffet, live carving station and more (you’ll find us at the slow roast beef rib station…).

And while the brunch (which costs a bargainous Dhs249) runs from noon until 6pm, you’ve got extra reason to hang around for a bit longer, because from 7pm until 8pm you can get 70 percent off a range of house beverages, while seven different local acts will be performing throughout the day on multiple stages.

Expect to see Dubai favourites Scott Maher, The Maplejacks, Mike Ross, The Gentlemen Barstewards, Sean Gavin, The Supernovas and John Hayes.

There will also be Dhs7,000 worth of randomly distributed prizes up for grabs throughout the day, including three Dhs1,000 bar tabs.

So, with the season in full swing and diaries filling up pretty rapidly, here’s another massive event you won’t want to miss.
Dhs249. Fri Nov 17 noon-3am. Bonnington Hotel Dubai, Cluster J, JLT (04 378 0800).
