Coffee is one thing we can't live without in Dubai – and with so many stylish cafes serving specialty versions of the hot black stuff, it's no wonder everyone is always looking for the newest, hippest place to visit. While cafes in other countries generally close around 6pm, the emirate offers plenty of spots open until late at night.
You'll also find all sorts of settings to go with your freshly brewed cup, from venues with cool motorbikes and supercars to more soothing nature themed hangouts decked in neutral tones.
