Darling of the Jumeirah Beautiful People and Trendsetters Club, Society is a picturesque boutique café, restaurant and lounge in Jumeirah 1. Located near the Jumeirah Mosque, opposite the venerable (and still rockin’) Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa, Society invites you to one of the best localities in Dubai. Its refreshing, whitewashed interior is airy and bright (during the days), flush with God-given natural light thanks to an amazing full-length ceiling skylight. Its elegant décor is a mix of European and Mediterranean resulting in a quaint, almost feminine ambience.
I’ve only had breakfast at Society, loving the unusually named Turkish Eggs. The Eggs Benedict my guest ordered was equally good (of course, I tried some). I can only assume the rest of their menu is of the same high standard. But even if you don’t come in to eat a meal, Society offers a selection of excellent tea and coffee…and fresh bread, pastries and/or desserts. I saw a lot of morning moms simply enjoying coffee together, including, I couldn’t help noticing, a couple of yummy mummies too…hmm.
Service is definitely a Society strong point. Whilst our waitress wasn’t the friendliest, she was well-groomed, polite and professional; good enough for me. Society Café and Lounge is, without a doubt, one of the best venues of its type in Dubai and well worth a visit.
Note: The Jumeirah Beautiful People and Trendsetters Club is NOT an actual organisation. It was intended as a comical/fictional way of jokingly saying, beautiful, trendy people visit Society. That’s all, so please don’t write back asking for membership details.
