A place to hangout with friends anytime. Art House Café in Abu Dhabi won us over
To get the Latino spirit, you don’t necessarily have to travel far because there is a hidden spot in the heart of the Capital with exactly the same theme.
There are four ways to describe this arty café in Abu Dhabi that has an atmosphere worth experiencing.
Located beside the Etihad Modern Art Gallery and the Etihad Antiques Gallery, this is the ideal spot to sip your coffee in between exhibitions. So dedicate a morning to a cultural outing and visit these 3 artsy places at the same time.
Khaled Seddiq Al Mutawa, the owner of Art House Café who also owns the Etihad Modern Art Gallery wanted to create a sustainable and eco-friendly café and his mission is definitely achieved. The café and the veranda are literally built around the frangipani trees that are dressed for the occasion with recycled t-shirts wrapped around the trunk.
Gas canisters painted in green are turned into colorful stools and perfectly fit with the table bar. Metal bins and wire netting baskets are turned into ceiling pendants while glass bottles and pipe works are revamped into wall lamps.
We ordered a cappuccino that was served in our beloved ‘Bodum’ coffee cup and spent something an hour resting and admiring all the details of the refreshing green and colorful glass roof café whilst listening to old Gypsy King tunes that perfectly fit with the atmosphere. Definitely a place to chill alone or with a group of friends.
OUT OF THE BOX
We are surrounded and spoilt with choice and great places to visit and such a place proves that Abu Dhabi goes on surprising us daily and there are still pure gems to discover right at our doorstep.
A spot in the Capital that definitely has the wow factor.
