Alserkal Avenue, the arts hub in Dubai's Al Quoz, is back after closing temporarily while we all stayed home.
Businesses there are re-opening "at their own pace" and we can confirm that you can now get your creative kicks at Gulf Photo Plus, joyous Happy Studio and Gallery Isabelle Van, browse vinyl at The Flip Side and re-fuel at Nightjar.
A full list of everywhere that's open and their opening hours can be found at alserkalavenue.ae/en/event/covid-19-updates.php
If you still prefer to interact online, then Alserkal has got your back.
