urban bar & kitchen or more popularly knows as ubk is a modern bar offering a warm fun-loving ambiance while serving grills, roasts and classic comfort food from lunch until the early hours.
Positioned at the cluster A of Jumeirah Lakes Towers, just below Movenpick JLT, ubk takes inspiration from the lively urban surroundings. Guests can share a generous platter of ubk’s tastiest nibbles, choose from a range of gourmet burger varieties with hand-cut chips or tuck into a generous pot of fresh mussels cooked in a choice of broths.
People usually come here to enjoy drinks or relax or even play billiards as they have a table inside the bar. You can choose to loosen up inside as they always have entertainment in the form of a live band or the resident DJ spinning some tunes. You can also sit back outside now that they have opened the outdoor seating area which is just perfect for the weather recently.
This weekend, they have launched their Friday Brunch which is halloween-themed because of course, Halloween is just around the corner. They have decorated the bar and added some spooky designs to complement the theme.
We really liked the food that they have prepared at today’s brunch. Although not as massive as the other brunches that I have been to, I believe they stuck to the basics. You have salads, roast beef, pasta, corn on a cob, the staple chicken and roast beef and the main star of today’s brunch: the spit roast lamb. And if you take on the alcohol package, you get your fill of beer and other drinks as well.
Considering the sizable space of the restaurant, I must say we didn’t have a hard time calling the staff when we needed something. They were attentive and were quick to tidy up the table as soon as we finished a round. They were also friendly and asked if we wanted more of this or more of that and were always smiling while doing all that so they all have to be commended.
To sum up, nothing much has to be said about ubk. It’s a pretty famous bar and almost everyone in Dubai knows about it already. It’s one of those safe and consistent places that you can go to with assurance that you will enjoy the food and the atmosphere and you will be taken cared of by the staff.
The ubk Friday brunch is on every Friday from 12:30pm – 4:30 pm and only costs AED 129 with soft beverages and AED 225 with house beverages. This is definitely one of the most affordable brunches out there and you can definitely enjoy your Friday afternoon without breaking the bank.
