Smile Where to go after brunch in Dubai?

Hi all

Can anyone recommend places to go in Dubai after doing Saffron brunch at the Atlantis please? There is going to be a group of ladies in Dubai for the weekend celebrating a hen do. TIA

😄

Atlantis have a day club called Ndulge where most people from Saffron seem to end up. There's a free coach from outside the brunch.

Another option is to get a cab to Barasti, but for gods sake leave before 8/9pm.

Younger/trashier after 9.

Hey, you might fit right in

To be fair, I was there not long ago and yes, even after nine, and it wasn't bad the way some people make it out to be. A group of us took over one of the tables on the beach and it was fine.

Thanks will probably check it out if the weathers not too hot

Millhouse would be quick, I assure you.

Getting out of Saffron is a bit of a faff, you either get on a bus to N'Dulge and hang around at the outside bar and drink until getting a taxi might be easier or you queue and wait without going there.

Frankly, it's a bit shit, but it's the post-brunch crowd so everyone is at least a bit more....loose.

Other than that, a hen-do....probably belongs in Barasti, it's probably the best place to go for what the typical (in my head) hen-do wants.

There's also Madinat Jumeirah if you want something a bit more grown up or restrained after brunch. A couple of bars to pick from.

McGettingans at JLT does a post-brunch package for 150 AED, all you can drink from 5-8, I think.

Thanks for that. We r thinking of hiring a limo (bit tacky maybe) but means getting out of Atlantis should be easier n then drop off at barasti after a while. What time does barasti start getting busy?

It'll be sort of busy all afternoon, but later on (I guess post brunch and then much busier in the evening) especially.

Madinat suggested above isn't a bad idea.

Depends what you want. If it's standing on the table, screaming and enticing greasy Lebo blokes to grope a few of you then Barasti it is.

If it's a grown up, mature hen-do then Madinat or a few other bars in Marina or Downtown.

Great stuff thanks to all. Barasti sounded good until the mention of sleezy leboneezies about ha. The after brunch package also sounds good and messy not sure if we will still be walking by 8pm tho :-/
