The trip down memory lane
Dating back to the 19th century and established by pearl & textile traders from Bastak,
Iran, this is Dubai’s most engaging and oldest neighbourhood. Its labyrinth lanes
are lined with restored merchant houses, cafes, boutique hotels and art
galleries where you can enjoy Emirati, Iranian and Middle Eastern art.
The XVA Gallery Art Hotel & Café is Dubai’s best kept secret retreat,
with its three original wind towers, a sumptuous lounge and starry rooftop.
Perfect on a cool summers evening…
