In a town where brunch has become the norm it’s pretty difficult to get one that stands out from the rest but EW can report that Media One (EW’s new HQ!) have come up trumps. The 1 Loves brunch offers fun by the bucket load, creating an experience that will leave you wanting to do it all again the following week. Prepare to be impressed.


The Dek on 8 plays host to the 1 Loves brunch, giving off a chilled out vibe thanks to the comfy sofas and low tables. Set around the pool, you can soak in the stunning views as the DJ kick starts the day with chilled beats.


What better way to start the experience than being greeted with Moet bubbles poured over ice and served in a special goblet before you’re guided to your table?

With the bar already set high, friendly staff strive to maintain it by keeping your glass topped up throughout the day.

Å variety of sharing platters brought to your table, eliminate the usual anti-social aspect of buffet style brunch.

There’s something for everyone with nibbles, including mini burgers, chicken cones and even ice-pops to cool you down.

Our top tip. make sure you save some room for the scrumptious cup cakes, the perfect sugary pick me up at the end of the afternoon.


This is where the 1 Loves brunch beats off the competition with a variety of entertainment that ranges from the super cool DJ, ballet dancers and even a mermaid in the pool.

Unleash your inner child and dabble with the finger paint or simply soak up the sun and unwind after a busy week.

This brunch puts the emphasis on being sociable with a crowd who are up for having serious fun in the sun.

Why bother?

With a clientele boasting model good looks, entertainment that will impress the toughest crowd and delicious nibbles to soak up the endless supply of bubbles, this brunch is fast becoming a favourite with the cool kids.

It’s best to book in advance and go in a group and get ready to experience what will be one of the most surreal brunch experiences in Dubai.
