Nearly one year after its opening, the novelty of The WB™ Abu Dhabi hasn’t worn off, appealing to kids and kids at heart with its pop culture memorabilia, themed rooms, and absurdly easy access to Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi theme park. As for reasons to venture over to the property during the long days of September? Well, we can think of eleven.
Those missing a taste of home can head to The Director’s Club and tuck into a hearty roast every Sunday from 12pm to 4pm, choosing from a perfectly prepared slow-roasted beef sirloin, herb-marinated leg of lamb or roasted corn-fed chicken served with lashings of rich gravy and traditional trimmings – think: Yorkshire pudding, duck fat potatoes, cheddar-baked cauliflower, and roasted vegetables. Seafood and vegetarian options are also available.
For an additional AED 40, diners can upgrade their meal with dishes such as The Director’s salad, local burrata, or Gulf prawn cocktail. A special kids’ menu is also available, featuring dishes such as Krispy clucks, Dino burger, Scrappy’s steak, and macaroni and cheese.
