Head to Make with your MacBook or you may feel out of place. If you haven't got one, they’re available to borrow (along with iPads) at this futuristic, industrial, hipster hangout. The front half of the space resembles a retro diner, with a huge metallic sign made of light bulbs above the bar. The rest is like a library with clover-shaped desks, perfect for the entrepreneurial business meetings that take place. People leave quirky messages in bottles (and on the wall at the entrance) advertising their creative freelance skills and the café also hosts talks and workshops. Staff are friendly, attentive and forthcoming with menu recommendations and are knowledgeable of what’s on offer. Food is pricey considering portion sizes, but salads are well prepared with the freshest ingredients – the smoked trout salad with Asian greens, blood orange and almonds is an unusual combination that’s zingy and crisp. And when it's all over and you've packed your MacBook away, ready to pay your bill, it’s presented to you on an iPad.
Open Sun-Thu 8am-10pm, Fri-Sat 10am-10pm. Level One, Al Fattan House, JBR, Dubai Marina, www.makebusinesshub.com (04 392 9216).
