When something special comes on our radar we get especially excited. That’s why Ahlan! was thrilled to here that the team behind universally loved spaces like The Archive in Safa Park, The Magazine Shop in DIFC and Al Quoz’s The Shelter have unveiled yet another cultural hub meets gastro-hotspot called Creekside, with a focus on architecture, art, culture, design and, given its unique location, heritage.
The name gives away its location; you can’t nab a better vantage point for people, dhow and abra-watching as it’s situated amidst the action on the Bur Dubai side of the Dubai creek. We love the fact that you can sign up for a workshop (everything from bookbinding to pottery to costume design is being offered), attend a screening or just sip on your perfect latte and take in the hustle and bustle of arguably the most vibrant part of the city.
Brownbook is obviously determined to nourish our minds and our tummies so make sure you (and any tourists you may be hosting) check out this new, much-needed addition to Dubai.
