An exciting and wonderfully vibrant new addition has landed in Dubai with the launch of Kulture House, located on Jumeirah Beach Road. Kulture House is a home grown, multi-space venue housing an artisanal café, concept store and art pop up featuring the work of handpicked local artists. In addition, Abu Dhabi’s favorite florist- Fleurology, will now have a Dubai home in Kulture House. Above all, a sense of community is very much the cornerstone of the Kulture House ethos.
From the moment you walk through the intricately tiled entrance flanked by a beautiful, courtyard dining space to the renovated Jumeirah villa, it is apparent that this is no ordinary café. The interior of the property is vibrant and alive with color, drawing inspiration from every corner of the globe with many of the world’s cultures represented and epitomized in this chic space where art reigns supreme.
From the modern take on an Arabic majlis to the life-size Russian doll, Kulture House will prove a delightful assault on the senses. As they wander the venue, visitors can expect to be taken on a journey through each continent. Countries including the UAE, Peru, Kenya, Egypt, Cuba, Morocco, Azerbaijan and Italy are all represented in the design aspects of the property, with each piece of furniture individually commissioned to give a truly unique experience….at Kulture House, it’s all about the details.
Kulture House was born out of the founder’s love for travel and cultural immersion. Whilst travelling, it became clear that cultures everywhere merge and blend beautifully into one another. Whether it be the spices used in food, the use of textiles, pattern and colour or the daily traditions that weave through each. There is much more that unites, than divides us and thus Kulture House offers a delicious cohesion.
Very much in alignment with 2019 being the Year of Tolerance, Kulture House was conceptualized, offering a space where creativity and most importantly community is nurtured and encouraged. The property is large, light and bright with comfortable seating giving guests an easy-going work space as they enjoy the specialty coffee and delicious food on offer.
The menu was created with honesty and wholesomeness in mind, like the venue itself the food is welcoming, quirky, diverse and delicious.
Breakfast dishes include Jalapeno Eggs Benedict, Mezzeh Platter with Meloui Bread, Avocado on Toast and Acai Bowls. The lunch/dinner menu serves up dishes with a difference- Breaded Olives, Salmon Fish Fingers and Weekend in Capri- Linguine Pasta, Sundried Tomatoes and Crispy Cheese.
Dessert is not to be missed in Kulture House- the Persian Nights Rice Pudding is infused with saffron and topped with pistachio brittle. This is a rustic and nostalgic dish, that warms the soul while the Fried Oreos are a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
Another exciting facet of Kulture House is the retail experience on offer complimenting the cultural fusion of the café. The collection is an eclectic mix of mostly fair-trade items sourced from around the world, each piece hand selected with a story behind the objects. The venue believes in supporting entrepreneurship and local artists offering a space where their work can be showcased.
Kulture House, 106 Jumeirah Beach Road. Jumeirah Beach Road (opposite Beach Centre), open from 9.00am to 6.00pm.
