We’re entering into the time of year when new brunches are launching all over Abu Dhabi.
One of the most exciting new additions is the BYOF (Bring Your Own Friends) social brunch at classy sports bar Appaloosa.
Taking place every Friday between 1pm and 5pm, the event features high-end pub grub served on platters that you can re-order as many times as you like.
Dishes include salmon churro, breaded brie, pie and chips, bangers andmash, and shrimp feta and pumpkin salad. Desserts include New York cheesecake and Austrian pancakes.
There are free-flow beverages, including huge mixed drinks and a trolley serving juniper-based concoctions.
You can sing along to a live two-piece band throughout the afternoon, as well as competing with your mates on pool tables and hops pong.
If you fancy sitting outsaide you'll find a hops garden set-up with benches to gather around, too.
The packages also include unlimited house beverages, and if you can gather a group of 10 or more it will set you back Dhs222 per person or for smaller bookings it’s Dhs249 per person.
The brunch is on for a whole four hours every Friday, and it’s perfect if you live in the Khalifa City area and don’t fancy trekking all the way into the city for your Friday brunch.
Dhs222 (groups of ten or more), Dhs249 (individual). From Sep 6, Fri 1pm-5pm. Marriott Hotel Al Forsan Abu Dhabi, Khalifa City (02 201 4131).
