Like something out of Star Trek, a Starbucks in Al Seef is grabbing eyeballs for its unique style.
Gone is the recognisable green Starbucks exterior in favour of a more rustic layout, which is in keeping with the historical ‘hood where it’s located, next to the banks of Dubai Creek.
Located in the oldest part of Dubai, Al Seef itself has been entirely renovated. A combination of old-meets-new in Dubai’s heritage district and this coffee shop is a perfect nod to the old school style
The Starbucks in Al Seef is perfect for a cuppa when exploring old Dubai
The two-tailed mermaid logo, that represents the coffee brand worldwide, is clearly visible
A word to the wise, the interiors don’t quite match up to the exterior

For #Starbucks fans, don’t miss out this unique branch! (The indoors area isn’t as pretty as the outdoors area) – Parking in the basement!

The entire building and surrounding neighbourhood celebrates Dubai Creek’s early days as a famous coastal and pearl-diving base
