Serendipity 3’s 1st Anniversary in Dubai Festival City
Serendipity 3 recently celebrated its 1st Anniversary in Dubai Festival City and Buzzingtales can’t help buzzing about all the wonderful things that happened there. Serendipity 3 has been one of New York City’s most beloved eateries for more than 60 years and this quirky establishment has been offering guests in Dubai the same whimsical menu as their New York clientele for a whole year now. We loved the warm party vibes, ambiance, views and the absolutely yummy food. Founded by Calvin Holt, Patch Caradine and Stephen Bruce, Serendipity is defined as, ‘The art of making happy discoveries, or finding the unexpectedly pleasant by chance or sagacity.’
From Andy Warhol to Cher, Zac Efron, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and almost every American President, super stars have been visiting Serendipity since it first opened in 1956 in New York, and it seems Dubai residents are just as captivated by this celebrity haunt.
The eccentric interior of this legendary restaurant has to be one of the most Instagram-worthy in Dubai. Guests can enjoy fabulous, and over the top food whilst surrounded by vintage umbrellas hanging from a beautifully painted ceiling of clouds, tiffany lamps, giant clocks, funky pop-art paintings, birdcages and a desert counter to make your mouth water.
Serendipity 3 offers a delicious excuse to break the diet and share scrumptious food with family, friends and loved ones with their savory treats and supersize sweets. The indisputable highlight of the S3 menu has to be their ‘Dubai Treasure Chest’ intended for four, consisting of an edible chocolate chest filled with ice-creams, waffle cones, cakes, berries, a variety of candy topped with a generous spray of whipped cream and hot fudge sprinkled with a dash of edible gold.
The eccentric S3 menu is most acclaimed for its unique desserts including ornate sundaes, the outrageous banana split, decadent milkshakes, divine cakes and the renowned Frrrozen Hot Chocolate. This delightful restaurant also offers an enticing savory menu that boasts foot-long hot dogs, pumpkin pizza, towering onion rings, mac & cheese, classic sweet waffle and mighty mini beef sliders to name just a few of our personal favorites.
To mark this New York born iconic restaurant’s 1 year anniversary of being in Dubai, Serendipity 3 celebrated in typical avant-garde fashion with a fabulous bash on the 18th April at Dubai Festival City. Guests were welcomed from 6pm – 8pm and enjoyed a selection of S3’s hero dishes, Serendipitous entertainment and VERY special guests. If you haven’t already joined the A List set and paid this enchanting restaurant a visit this is the perfect chance!
