The Pavilion: What’s not to love about Downtown’s creative hub? As well as cutting-edge art exhibitions staged in the stripped-down galleries, The Pavilion also boasts airy workspaces (usually occupied by Macbook-wielding creatives), a multitude of artistic books available for visitors to read, and even Segway tours of the Downtown area. There are few more stylish ways to spend a morning than settling in at the café with a plate of eggs Benedict and a smoothie, and watching Dubai’s arty types saunter past.
