Expect a “home away from home” at Kulture House.
An exciting and wonderfully vibrant new addition has landed in Dubai! Kulture House, located on Jumeirah Beach Road, is a home grown, multi-space venue housing an artisanal café, concept store and art pop up featuring the work of handpicked local artists. In addition, Abu Dhabi’s favorite florist- Fleurology, has a dedicated room within the property. Above all, a sense of community is very much the cornerstone of the Kulture House ethos.
We love the intricately tiled entrance flanked by a beautiful, courtyard dining space. The interior of the property is vibrant and alive with color, drawing inspiration from every corner of the globe with many of the world’s cultures represented and epitomized in this chic space where art reigns supreme.
From the modern take on an Arabic majlis to the life-size Russian doll, Kulture House has a distinct style. Countries including the UAE, Peru, Kenya, Egypt, Cuba, Morocco, Azerbaijan and Italy are all represented in the design aspects of the property, with each piece of furniture individually commissioned to give a truly unique experience.
We were invited to try their homemade food. The diverse menu has a little bit of everything-breakfast dishes include Jalapeno Eggs Benedict, Mezzeh Platter with Meloui Bread, Avocado on Toast and Acai Bowls. The lunch/dinner menu serves up dishes with a difference- Breaded Olives, Salmon FishFingers and Weekend in Capri- Linguine Pasta, Sundried Tomatoes and Crispy Cheese.
Dessert is not to be missed in Kulture House- the Persian Nights Rice Pudding is infused with saffron and topped with pistachio brittle. This is a rustic and nostalgic dish, that warms the soul.
Our order of the Turkish eggs served with homemade sourdough was delightful and we wiped the plate clean. We also tried the hummus bowl with crispy cauliflower-the flavors matched perfectly together and its definitely a dish we may even try to recreate at home. Although we were in quite a happy place with all the savory dishes, our server insisted we try at least one item from the dessert section. The cardamom cake was utterly moist and we savored each bite.
Kulture House was born out of the founder’s love for travel and cultural immersion. Whilst travelling, it became clear that cultures everywhere merge and blend beautifully into one another. Whether it be the spices used in food, the use of textiles, pattern and colour or the daily traditions that weave through each. There is much more that unites, than divides us and thus Kulture House offers a delicious cohesion.
Very much in alignment with 2019 being the Year of Tolerance, Kulture House was conceptualized, offering a space where creativity and most importantly community is nurtured and encouraged.
Another exciting facet of Kulture House is the retail experience on offer complimenting the cultural fusion of the café. The collection is an eclectic mix of mostly fair-trade items sourced from around the world, each piece hand selected with a story behind the objects. The venue believes in supporting entrepreneurship and local artists offering a space where their work can be showcased.
