What to do
Alserkal Avenue
Al Quoz

Alserkal Avenue in Al Quoz is a vibrant art hub in Dubai boasting world class galleries, hands on art exhibitions, artistic food concepts, a unique cinema concept- Cinema Akil, which plays critically acclaimed world movies and documentaries.

Looking at this place, nobody can tell that not many years ago, it was an industrial area consisting of 39 warehouses. The area has undergone a serious overhaul since 2008, when ‘Ayyam Gallery’ moved its base here and as word started to spread, many other of the city’s leading galleries, such as Carbon 12 Dubai, Isabelle Van den Eynde Gallery and Green, started to move into the area and soon enough this industrial area turned into a social hub for people with an artistic nature, both novice and seasonal.

Today, Alserkal Avenue hosts a variety of exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, community-based food festivals, creative festivals, film screenings, photography exhibitions and everything art. It is also a fantastic place to explore world music as it invites world famous artists to perform live at open to the public events.

Alserkal Avenue is also playing host to the biggest ten-minute play festival in the world, Short+Sweet Dubai until 9 March where over 300 of the city’s top writers, directors and actors come together to create a seven-week festival of theatre. This season, Short+Sweet will present over 100 ten-minute plays entertaining audiences who love the fun and surprises that come along.

The venue will be holding art classes on drawing techniques, an art exhibition by the famous Egyptian watercolorist Shafiq Rizk, CHI-KA, which presents a curated selection of 100 wildly interesting works from the latest ‘NEW JAPAN PHOTO’- the catalogue of up and coming Japanese photographers, and a lot more.

Some of the top restaurants to grab a cup of coffee and discuss the art around Alsekal are Wild & The Moon, Nightjar Coffee, Mirzam and Project Chaiwala.

As a whole, Alserkal Avenue mirrors a place where you immerse in artistic vibes and can spend a good amount of time seeking inspiration from its art laden lanes.
