Bright sparks looking for some scintillating summertime discussions should hot-foot it to The Magazine Shop in Media City to meet like-minded literary fiends. Every month this cultural, quirky spot comes alive for book-based debate, croissants, conversation and artisanal-staple RAW coffee (they encourage you to bring your own mug to save the environment whilst indulging in the bookish fun).
If books aren’t your thing then there are a plethora of other activities you can sign up for; our faves include a DIY Make Your Own Magazine workshop, discussions on the making of Manga comics, movie screenings and Yoga Tuesdays. Or you could just get a creative boost by browsing through their incredible array of independent, international magazines whilst indulging in caffeine and cake.
Mark this down as a must-see stop on your Dubai hidden haunts guide.
