As the first entry in our series of Summer Discoveries in The Luxe Diary, we visit Kulture House in the ever classic Jumeirah 1.
Read our review of the stylish Kulture House in the heart of Jumeirah 1
At The Luxe Diary we are secretly fans of the summer months. As crowds flee the soaring temperatures it is a perfect time to explore some of the best new coming restaurants, luxe favourites and cultural experiences in the city with what feels like red carpet attention as everywhere is a little quieter, more serene and utterly enjoyable.
We had not yet had the chance to visit Kulture House but we were thrilled to finally discover the exciting and wonderfully vibrant new addition in Dubai that opened its doors in March this year.
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.
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 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.
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.
The property is large, light and bright with comfortable seating giving guests an easy-going work space as they enjoy the specialty coffee from Encounters (the Tom & Serg team) and delicious food.
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. But we were there for lunch and loved the delicious Smash Burger – tasty and flavoursome classic with perfect fries. We also particularly enjoyed the Summer Burrata – a fresh and original take on a favourite.
For dessert we recommend the Persian Nights Rice Pudding – infused with saffron and topped with pistachio brittle. This is a rustic and nostalgic dish, that warms the soul. But the showstopper is the Fried Oreos with a light creme anglaise (light vanilla custard), which is to die for.
