Remember the good old days of UNO, Ludo and Monopoly? Us too. But now it's not such a fond and distant memory, thanks to Unwind café bringing the board game culture back to Dubai. Cue nostalgia.

Boasting a collection of more than 500 games, Unwind - started by Dubai- born and raised brother and sister Vaihundan and Hamsa Paramalingam, along with their friend, Saifur Rahman - has a goal to bring people together and to connect them through board games. An activity somewhat missing nowadays. 

For the hungry board gamers, expect an all-day breakfast, homemade sandwiches, desserts and bakery items like croissants and pain au chocolat. Coffee and Tiramisu will be waiting for you afterwards. Yum. 

Even better, if you're looking to host a game night at your house, Unwind - located on Hessa street - will organise it for you! The café will provide the games as well as offering 'Game Masters' to come over and teach and guide your guests on the rules. Amazing.

Here's what you need to know about the gaming rates at the café: 

General: (adults)

1 hour: Dhs27 per person

2 hours: Dhs32 per person

Junior: (children) 

1 hour: Dhs21 per child

2 hours: Dhs 32 per child

All that's left to say is don't forget to bring with you an empty stomach and a competitive streak, as both will be satisfied. 

For bookings, call  (+971) 56 404 0019 or see unwinddubai.com
