About Alserkal Avenue: Dubai’s Arts & Culture District

The Avenue hosts more than 40 creative concepts, including 20 permanent art spaces such as Concrete – the first building in the UAE by the world-famous Dutch architectural firm, OMA.

One of the first spaces to open when the hub was launched was Ayyam Gallery, renowned for its support of Syrian artists whose works tackle topics such as war and identity. On the other end of the spectrum, a private collection of European and American post-minimal works from the 1960s through to the 1990s can be viewed at Jean Paul Najar Foundation. Meanwhile, the Green Art Gallery is home to contemporary and emerging artists from the region and beyond.

Other notable art hubs include Salsali Private Museum, the region's first gallery for contemporary Middle Eastern art, and Carbon 12 Dubai, which rotates exhibitions by international artists and a high-energy calendar of art and culture events.

One of my favorite places here in Dubai! Has a laidback vibe yet very alive. So many instagrammable spots and cute cafes too. My space of respite ❤️‍🔥 I can just sit down and read a book and that’s it. Day made, thanks to this cultural and artistic alley. You can also visit various galleries too

If you’re looking for a different experience in Dubai, which is something a bit not Dubai.nnYou better visit Al Serkal Avenue. You’ve got cafes, galleries, and much more you can think of.nnThis place is simply filled with beauty and art.nnAnd you’ve got loads of old classic cars you can take photos of instead of all the exotic cars on the streets.

I visited at 12pm in mid July for coffee. The place had many available parking but I was asked to park outside and walk in the heat when I can clearly see free spots inside but were blocked by security. I fail to understand the system. It should be first come first serve basis. It was very infuriating to walk to my destination when I can see more than 20 available spots. I urge the management to take a better look into this system. Thank you.

A great place to network, hold meeting or a sharing work space. It has a positive vibe and located strategically to reach any corner of Dubai within 35minutes. One star less as some desk do not have a power outlet.

Very nice place if youu2019re interested on art, photography, cars or cinema. Itu2019s just a bit in the middle of nowhere between Downtown Dubai and the Marina. But a great place to walk around see some art exhibitions and eat a bit.

We came to Alserkal to see the more artistic side of Dubai and loved it. Beautiful gallery spaces and interesting art! And such a nice (free) activity to do with a friend or partner.

Lovely place to hangout with your friends. Beautiful events every now and then. The only thing I wish to change there if they stop allowing cars inside during peak hours or events. With cars driving around it becomes very hard for people to walk freely and chill

One of the best streets to explore. It retro yet modern! And has good places to eat at which cater for carnivores and vegan alike. When there is an event it is a very lively and happening area. Highest recommendation! Make sure to Visit it when there is an outdoor event.

Visit the place for a nice winter stroll. Enjoy the art and creativity all over the avenue. Admire classic cars in Nostalgia, have a tea at Project Chaiwala and enjoy a good food with charitable intention at Inked.
