Brunch review : Warehouse, Le Méridien Dubai
When it comes to lively party brunches in the UAE, Warehouse at Le Méridien Dubai has got quite the reputation. And having a reputation in this case is a good thing, because it merely means the brunch is consistently busy, upbeat and a guaranteed good time. Have you ever heard of someone going to The Hive Friday Brunch at Warehouse and calling it “boring” afterwards? Exactly our point.
Admittedly, we’ve tried this brunch before, and had a brilliant time. We’ve now returned a year later, and it’s evident from the moment we walk in that Warehouse hasn’t lost its magic. The food station is slightly smaller than we remember, but it’s still got more than enough options to keep everyone happy. Whether it’s light bite sandwiches or hearty spare ribs you’re looking for, the quality of the food is top-notch. Because, while many party brunches neglect the quality of food, Warehouse still offers 5-star grub. And don’t even get us started on the tasty variety of desserts.
Although the venue gets busy, the service remains on point. The downstairs area is slightly more relaxed, with lots of natural night, while the upstairs section has a darker nightclub feel to it. So it’s no surprise that the upstairs level turns into an actual nightclub the moment brunch ends. Tables are cleared away and we dance off the red velvet calories we scoffed on all afternoon.
We can officially say that, once again, fun was had by all.
