  • The XVA gallery in Dubai is a little gem very different from the rest of Dubai with its tranquility, nice exhibits and great food in its cosy little restaurant.

  • Really neat rotating exhibits of contemporary art. The cafe is nice and friendly folks! The gift shop has some unique items you just won't find in the rest of Dubai. Place would be a nice Atlas Obscura listing :) The surrounding are is also fantastic for photographers. A welcome respite from most of the flashiness Dubai is notorious for.
  • One of those enchanting places… unexpected, one of my favorite places at the heart of the old heritage Dubai. Nice service and my favorite rice pudding with rose water and turkish coffee.
