The Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa will soon open the Cross-Cultural Café and Bistro, which it says will fill a gap in the food and beverage offering in the historical and cultural hub of Al Fahidi Fort area.

The new dining venue, located across the street from the Rulers Court and Dubai Museum in Bur Dubai, takes inspiration from the ‘90s popular TV Series ‘Friends’, said the release. Open 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the all-day menu includes Emirati and Western a-la-carte breakfast, sandwiches, salads, burgers, pasta, char-grilled kebabs, and pies, as well as Western dishes, camel meat and dairy produce from Arabian and Emirati cuisine, Indian dishes and Asian delicacies.

Habib Khan, CEO Hospitality Division of Planet Group, said: “With the opening of Cross-Cultural Café and Bistro, we are filling up the vacuum of a quality café culture missing for a while in this area. We’re confident that it will complement and contribute positively to the Al Seef cultural vicinity.”

Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, which recently underwent a US 1.4 million renovation, is located in Bur Dubai, next to Dubai Museum and within walking distance to Dubai Creek and Bastakiya Heritage Area, among other such attractions.
