Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Chill Out is a rather obvious name for a café that’s cooled to -6°C and offers ice chairs to sit on. Situated in the nondescript Times Square Mall, it costs Dhs60 for entry, which includes the hire of fur hats and padded coats and gloves, as well as one drink: hot chocolate being the most appealing. Inside, surreal abstract images of women decorate the walls, and techno music blares. The soup is, thankfully, hot – though nothing life- or palate-challenging, while the sandwiches just can’t be enjoyed due to the extreme temperatures. not to mention the constant worry that any exposed flesh will get stuck to the ice everywhere. Certainly worth a visit for novelty purposes, but don’t expect to relax, or even really have a decent conversation over the blasting AC and techno-heavy music. We’re not sure about the eco-friendliness of it all, but it’s worth a trip when you’re bored in the summer.
