Double Decker is a famous Dubai institution, this British themed bar is jam-packed with character. A collection of London bus and underground memorabilia and a menu brimming with traditional pub favourites and British beers has long been a hit with Dubai residents in search of a taste of home. With daily happy hours, a resident DJ and screening of Premier League games means this sports bar in Dubai is always packed and buzzing. The large outdoor terrace is generally filled up each evening and on Friday’s for the popular brunch, one must book early!
People can taste cuisines all under one roof, fajitas, fish and chips – diners can have burgers with a side of chocolate mousse. Double Decker’s Friday Brunch is inviting. The menu makes it stand out, it’s the quality of the party at a bargain price that makes it worthy of a visit. Double Decker is set in the Roda Al Murooj Hotel, Downtown Dubai. This longstanding watering hole Double Decker has all the makings of a quaint English pub in summer.
There’s a spacious outdoor garden with plenty of seating and an open grill. Indoors offer a comfortable feel, this pub has English-style signs and decorations revolving around bus stops in London, a grand wooden interior, large couches and two wide bars to refill drinks. The waiters are available when drinks are needed. Service is very swift and also efficient. This brunch is now labelled as a party brunch. Double Decker’s four-hour time frame is appreciated, especially as the Friday brunch is a pocket-friendly Dhs250.
Food is freshly made and is served hot. Highlights include a creamy pasta dish and a live fajita cooking station. The Mexican flavours are great here. Other dishes are also good such as burgers with colourful buns, adding fun and quirky feel. The lamb stew is watery, with chunks of meat with gravy. Starters are tasty and well presented.
