Bait Al Wakeel

Refuel From Bayt Al Wakeel's Deck

Next to the Textile Souk, in one of Dubai's oldest buildings (built of mud, coral and wood beams circa 1935), Bayt Al Wakeel houses a maritime museum and a heritage restaurant with an outdoor deck rising over the lively Dubai Creek. Its authentic atmosphere draws crowds who enjoy Levantine and Emirati classics like lamb kebabs, seafood and citrus-splashed salads, and always finds them staying for the view.

The deck is an ideal perch to watch abras and dhows glide over the waters while seagulls caw and swoop. If you look across the water you'll see the Burj Nahar, one of three historic watchtowers used to guard Dubai from attack by desert tribes. Order a fresh juice and imagine the city before skyscrapers sprouted and glamour ruled the day.

  • An exploration of the life and times of a pearl merchant
    Bait Al Naboodah museum is among those located in the heart of Sharjah. The museum was actually the home of the famous pearl merchant, Al Naboodah, who built a fortune in the pearl trade in India and France. The home is one of the better examples of traditional Emirati architecture, with influences from the above-mentioned places too. The museum has a gallery on the life of the merchant, which was okish and another couple of galleries explaining the features. The ones that were worth seeing was the kitchen, bedroom and the summer room on the first floor as well as the courtyard. There was a temporary exhibition gallery on the ground floor, which wasn't anything great either. All in all, it was a mixed bag. I spent around 30 minutes here, which is sufficient to see the place. Entrance is AED 5.

  • Culture cum Cuisine
    The Bait Al Naboodah, affiliated with Sharjah Museums Authority umbrella is a certain scene stealer. An original coastal house in the heart of Sharjah (near Al Marjiha area), catering to a traditional Emirati ambience in a antique dwelling that has been refurbished & restored to not only promote an authentic setting but also enable the visitor engulf the true physical essence of this Arab style living. We were invited to a local breakfast that encompassed a quick powerpoint presentation, various simple classical dishes of this region, a demonstration of a popular milk dessert & a detailed brewing process of the exotic coffee beans or "qahwa" as it is famously named. Breakfast was delicious, delectable- the date pudding, a sure winner. List of the menu served is worth a watch in the pictures below. With a theatre, art center, a rain house, a tea house, a calligraphy centre & more, all within its vicinity, Bait Al Naboodah is a conscious effort to welcome, widen & import wisdom to one's worldly view on the United Arab Emirates. A must see for the local, expat & foreign visitor to this country.
