Every good hipster district needs a friendly hangout with a unique retail collection and menu of stuff the common man has never heard of, let alone eaten. Step forward Wild And The Moon, a little ray of energy that bursts through the narrow streets of Al Quoz, keeping the arty folk of the surrounding warehouses fed, watered and out of pocket with a collection of clean, healthy dishes and drinks, as well as a curious array of bits, pieces and non-perishables to help transform your kitchen space into the sort of place beards and braces feel comfortable.
Practically everything, be it edible or otherwise, is plant-based, ethically sourced and pure – without additives, chemicals or refined sugars. While Googling whatever it is that’s caught your eye on the shelves, you’ll be surrounded by ambitious young folk with eyes on leading Dubai’s next generation of entrepreneurs, each beavering away on Apple Macbooks.
Plants hang all around, and long, collaboration-encouraging tables can be found on both parts of the split-level space. It’s quiet and peaceful, with natural sunlight pouring in from the floor-to-ceiling glass entrance – a rarity in this part of town, where most outlets hide behind metal shutters.
It’s wonderfully inspiring place to get stuff done and pack your body and mind with some of those good vibes we find too little of these days.
