From once an outpost for coffee (and cookies), cafes in Dubai have come a long way, morphing into hotspots, offering an evolved set of F&B offerings, interspersed with unique experiences.
Many cafes offer more to customers than just their daily fix. Some places across town worth visiting, include:
1. The Six Board Game Café
This unique café offers visitors the opportunities to play an unlimited amount of board games for Dhs35 per person. Their vision is ‘We’re not just making coffee, we’re building a community’.
Head here with some friends, play games, and soak up the picturesque environment.
2. Café Ceramique
This eatery allows visitors to paint a pottery piece while enjoying food. This is an excellent spot for those keen to carve out a fun activity with their little ones. The staff will bake the pottery, which once done, can be later collected from the store.
3. Sketch Art Café
This is the place to let your inner artist loose. Every visitor gets the opportunity to paint a paper cup with their order. The space also has a sculpting and modelling section starting at Dhs70.
4. A4 Space
A4 Space, located in Al Serkal Avenue, doubles as a café and co-working space. Visitors can come in and opt for a quiet spot for free and can buy a coffee/ snack from the coffee shop.
5. Zoga- Yoga café
Zoga offers a unique community experience to practice yoga but also convene in the café before the class to connect and recharge. Yogis can even purchase lifestyle yoga clothes and accessories from their shop.
