DUKESY BEACH BRUNCH FOR FAMILIES
Every Friday from 10am-6pm (food served from 1pm-4pm)
Hugely popular DUKESY Beach Brunch returns to the West 14th, steakhouse, promising a family day out like no other. Boasting an idyllic location, mums and dads in need of a pick-me-up can relax by the beach, soak up the sun and tuck into delicious fare while children are entertained by fun activities and cared for by nannies. A mouth-watering selection includes Arabic to vegetarian and fish dishes, plus tasty food from live cooking stations. There’s a different theme each week, from superheroes to mermaids and pirates, so they can even come dressed for the occasion. Little ones can also fill their tummies at the self-serve kids’ buffet and then burn off some energy by taking part in the many activities on offer, including trampolining and face painting. If that’s not enough to keep them entertained, they can jump around on the bouncy castle, try their hand at cupcake decorating and make the most of the great outdoors at the children’s play area complete with the Jungle Gym swings and climbing frames. Parents can also cheer on their mini sporting stars during a five-a-side game of football on the beach, or splash around in the outdoor kids’ pool and lazy river. And if all of that action has done the trick and tired them out, they can take a rest by watching a children’s classic movie on our big outdoor screen.
