The wait is finally over – the brand new branch of Le Petit Belge is now open in Business Bay, and Time Out Dubai has already been for a look around.
The second outlet of the cool Belgian bar is now open to the public in the DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai – Business Bay and we can’t wait to try it.
The first Le Petit Belge, which offers a “truly Belgian experience”, threw open its doors in May 2017 at the Pullman Hotel JLT, and was immediately a massive hit.
Putting on “world-renowned Belgian cuisine, unmistakable Belgian hospitality and continental charm”, we love the relaxed vibe at the JLT spot. We also love the Belgian Abbey cheese croquettes, but that’s another story.
There’s also a huge range of deals, from happy hours to the famous ladies’ night. The latter, which runs from noon until 2am every Wednesday, is one of the longest we’ve heard of and offers up free drinks for the gals all day and night, plus 50 percent off food.
And the good news is that these deals will be replicated at the new Business Bay opening, too. There’s also a brand-new Friday brunch at both locations, which stars platters of hearty Belgian grub served to the table. You can expect assorted croquettes, “toast cannibal” (steak tartare), Flemish beef stew, garlic cream mussels and Belgian waffle cones.
And if that wasn’t enough, yet another branch is due to open in March in Park Inn by Radisson, Dubai Motor City.
Good news for Belgian food fans all round.
