Alserkal Cultural Foundation Reviews
This place is one of the main reasons why I go back to Fahidi. It has a very wide range of exhibits. It has creativity corner, fashion corner, and oh the Book quarter the papers and the smell of books... more »
I visited this shop as well as Alskerkal Street where the new galleries are located in the warehouse district. It’s still a work in progress but completely worth visiting more »
The district is an amazing place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city- and the Al Serkal Cultural Foundation has a nice cafe with good options. I always go to the book store at the foundation which is upstairs, if you ask you can be lead to it. They have great books on the region to pick up if you are a tourist visiting Dubai or live here and would like to get cultured :P also there are stores where you can buy unique things and souvenirs that have a cultural element as well. Looove this placeee its a must visit... and a great location
Peaceful place for a relaxing time for the mind and spirit.
