The convention is over – you need a good spot to slow down and take stock of what you’ve heard and who you’ve met. Luckily, the Dubai World Trade Centre business hub is striking distance from a number of excellent lounges, restaurants and cafes that provide the perfect atmosphere to debrief, wind down, and enjoy a cool drink. 

Six cafes, restaurants and nightspots in Dubai for post-conference socialising 

Mingle and experience Dubai after your conference at these six hotspots


While Dubai World Trade Centre is home to many cafes and restaurants ideal for a post-seminar refreshment, conference-goers keen to see more of the city won’t have to stray too far. Here are the coolest cafes, restaurants and nightspots within a 10-minute drive of the Trade Centre.



The café debrief



Lemonade


Lemonade is a unique cafe serving both hearty and healthy meals, and a few sugary treats, too. The cafe serves six types of lemonade, hence the name, including tangy guava and lime, and the surprisingly delicious combination of watermelon and rosemary.

The Sum of Us


The hipsters of Dubai have long since been banging the drum for Al Quoz coffee house Tom & Serg which now has a cult following in the city, and in The Sum of Us, the talented duo behind Tom & Serg have struck gold once again. With 20 different blends of coffee and a food menu that changes daily to accommodate the fresh local produce, The Sum of Us is every bit as cool as its Al Quoz counterpart.

Reflecting over a meal



Tresind


With a kitchen team lead by executive chef Himanshu Saini, who was crowned ‘Best Young Chef’ at the 2014 Delhi Gourmet Club’s Top Chef Awards, Tresind serves up classic Indian flavours, elevated to levels of modern brilliance using molecular gastronomy. The “textures of mushroom” dish is truly out of this world.

Okku


Super-sleek sushi restaurant Okku is famous in Dubai for delivering Japanese cuisine that the city’s foodies go absolutely mad for. Headed by executive chef, Hugo Sato Gardiner, the restaurant has won a clutch of awards - including most recently the prestigious Caterer Award for Restaurant of the Year and TimeOut Dubai’s award for Best Japanese - which brings with it a distinctly A-list clientele. It's not cheap – but with caviar and black truffle in the sushi, it’s certainly memorable.

After dark



The Stables


A relaxed nightspot that is great at getting the basics right, The Stables has carved out a reputation as a particularly safe pair of hands when it comes to an evening venue to please everyone. With sport on the televisions, live music performances, excellent food and reasonable prices, it is a great all-rounder, ideal for quenching a think-tank conference thirst.

Cave


Walk across the metro footbridge outside DWTC and you’ll end up at Cave, a cool lounge that oozes sophistication, from the trendy décor with dim lighting (for the ‘cave’ effect), to the regular clientele of young professionals. Pull up a stool at one of the communal tables or head off to a private lounge by the fireside, and work your way through an extensive menu of drinks, tasting platters and gourmet bites – with specials every day of the week.
