This is Dubai’s Most Famous Friday Brunch — Have You Tried it?!

There’s brunch… and then there’s the legendary Saffron Brunch at Atlantis, The Palm. This local institution still throws one of the best (and booziest) Friday parties in town — it’s wild, over-the-top and definitely one for the Dubai bucket-list! From the never-ending buffet to the funky drinks served in watermelons, it’s the place to be for big celebrations with your entire crew. Here’s a breakdown of what first-timers can expect

A brunch buffet that goes on… and on… and on!

We’re not exaggerating when we say the buffet options at Saffron are endless… we’re talking 220 dishes and 20 live cooking stations! With a generous mix of Asian cuisines and fresh seafood on showcase — alongside everything else your appetite could ever crave — it’s impossible to sample everything in just one afternoon (trust us… we’ve tried.) Whatever you decide, just remember to make room for the epic Willy Wonka-style dessert island.

Funky beverage stations for every mood

If there’s one thing the Saffron Brunch is known for, it’s the pop-up drinks stations that appear around every corner. After brunch kicks off, the atmosphere transforms into an epic carnival with so many tasty options at your disposal. Want to sip your bevvie from a watermelon or pineapple? How about dedicated counters for boozy slushies and shots served in test tubes? You name it… and they’re serving it up in style.

All-day party vibes on The Palm

This Dubai brunch is packed with energy from start to finish, so we suggest bringing a pair of flats if you plan on making the most of the dance party vibes. Resident DJ Soul Ninja will be mixing up all your favorite chart toppers and throwback hits from the 80s and 90s — along with live entertainers and dancers turning things wayyy up. Best part? They host a post-brunch party at Nasimi Beach from 4pm onwards with complimentary transport taking guests straight to the venue. Can you handle this all-day party on The Palm?!
