    Alserkal Avenue is a super cool district with a mix of art galleries and concept stores. It's sort of a creative hub. On weekends, they even have a farmer's market where you can find fresh local produce—perfect for foodies and veggi enthusiasts.

    When you're there, explore the charming coffee options! My favorite is Nightjar.

    Alserkal Avenue is a must-visit for art lovers and anyone seeking a vibrant cultural experience.

    Its quite artistic place to visit! I loved Eggplant burger and spicy rice.😍 Walking through historical neighborhood will take you to Dubai 19th century 😍 Sitting under the tree and enjoying your food sounds like a good plan 👍🏻

    This charming little place serves mostly vegetarian menu which is very tasty for everyone!

    Good place, barely anybody in there, so you can have it all to yourself. The exhibit contains some very interesting personal objects of important Emirati women, lots of info about women's role in the UAE. The second floor has walls filled with poems (amazing!). The place has great energy. The lady at the entrance is also a great guide and she can answer many questions.

    Took my Mum and Uncle who are visiting me here today as my Mum asked to go to an art gallery. I said we don’t really have them here in Dubai but I was wrong! After a bit of online searching Pro Art stood out as worth a visit. It is a large gallery bursting with amazing pieces including Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Dali and Picasso. We were given a tour by a lovely gentleman who knew the story of every piece and really brought our experience to life. Highly recommended!

    Located in the Bastakiya area, this gallery is delightful both in the art it houses and the vibe. One steps into a courtyard surrounded by art and an incredibly charming studio space. The gallery owner was friendly and happy to share information on the art on show.

    I love ! this place.If you are even a little bit into art somehow or just a curious person, you should visit Abdakulova art gallery, located in DIFC area. Amazing collection of art pieces from Central Asia, which can be purchased there.Perfect location, not overcrowded, so u can enjoy your time.Very friendly and welcoming staff, who can consult on any artwork. The gallery has a strong permanent collection of contemporary visual arts. Definitely worth your time)

    MRK Contemporary Art Gallery has easy access from Shiekh Zayed Road, opposite Burj Khalifa and Al Wasl Road City Walk. The gallery has diverse styles from affordable to extreme high end private viewing highest quality of artworks by celebrity Emirati and International Eurabian artists. Even if you are not going to buy, I strongly recommend you visit to get a feel-good factor. The Gallery makes you feel fresh and elevates your spirit.You would also learn about the culture and traditions of United Arab Emirates. I would give five stars to the Gallery.

    Gallery 27 is definitely by far the best gallery I have visited. Their artists that they work with are extremely talented and they all utilise a variety of techniques to present amazing art pieces with mixtures of different styles and textures. The gallery's style of pop art is exceptionally unique and makes it stand out from all the other galleries in Dubai. I highly recommend visiting here and indulging yourself in this wonderful experience! :)

    One of the best galleries I’ve been to in Dubai. There are so many unique exhibits that cannot be found anywhere else. It’s definitely worth a visit if you are in Dubai

    Many of us know nothing about good art, but a nice way to start learning is by viewing and appreciating truly great art.

    I stumbled upon Dubai's new Sovereign art gallery, and was pleasantly stunned to see some of the world's best known Indian masterpieces on show. Even plebian tastes can appreciate the pioneers of Modern Indian art - MF Husain, VS Gaitonde, SH Raza and the like.

    You will get a bonus if the curator is in residence at this gallery. He is knowledgeable, jovial, gracious, and very generous with his time if you are asking questions (I confess I had several dozen questions).

    Drop in, look around, study the works on the walls, and enjoy a wonderful conversation. You will leave knowing more about art than you have ever done. Highly recommended for singles, couples and art enthusiasts, and of course, for collectors.

    The gallery is a a bit out of the way near the camel market but well worth the trip. We visited the 'mind the gap' exhibition which features local artists. Imho true culture is difficult to find in Dubai and this is a great place to find a very welcome art space
