Hidden away in the sandy industrial streets of Al Quoz you’ll find a little hidden (and very hip) gem. Free of tourists but filled with Dubai’s expats and locals.
The entrance to this gem is a little alley that could very easily be missed if it wasn’t for the grand entrance door and regal blue walls of the Fine Art Gallery .
There is something romantic about it’s sun beaten yet intricately designed wooden features that speak to the beautiful craftsmanship of the region.
While the gallery deserves its own visit Katie and I had come here for a different reason.
What I would dub as Dubai’s most on point creation of a local trendy coffee shop.
Walk a little further down the alley way and you’ll see its big red coffee bean door on your left.
Inside coffee bags are stacked high and the space echoes its industrial location.
Raw Coffee is refreshing, a wake up and break away from Dubai’s endless chain cafes and repeated ambiances.
Walk up the stairs past the Buddha and you’ll find more seating comprised of coffee bag chairs and contrasting zebra print sofas.
Take a seat, relax, hop on the wifi, it’s definitely not about turning tables here.
