Creekside / Dubai

a contemporary cultural space and café in the heart of old Dubai that focuses primarily on architecture, art, culture, design, and heritage

Situated in the heart of old Dubai, Creekside is a contemporary cultural space and café focusing primarily on architecture, art, culture, design, and heritage.

Surrounded by artefacts and human-scale spaces that tell stories of Dubai’s history and heritage, Creekside has inherently and organically become a place of artistic expression, debate, and knowledge exchange.

Visitors to this space can socialise and enjoy screenings of independent films on the banks of the Dubai Creek – arguably the most defining landscape in the city’s decorated urban history. Additionally, visitors are encouraged to explore the Creek by taking a ride on the Abra – the oldest means of crossing the Creek, and one that affords a truly unique vantage point of the city.
