There are two things we love more than anything. Charming concept stores and great coffee, so we were beyond pleased to discover The Living Room AE, a hybrid of both situated in Jumeirah Road’s Mercato Mall.
The space was co-founded by Emirati designer, Fatma Al Mulla, who is known throughout the region for her vibrant prints and standout fashion label. So we weren’t surprised to find a flamboyant pink space that reflects her statement aesthetic.The cafe’s vibe is very relaxed and almost feels like a cosy majlis, hence the name. It’s a perfect spot to sit back and unwind after a long day of retail therapy so its a very welcome addition to the mall. They serve up specialty coffee made just the way you like it along with an array of mouth-watering dishes and indulgent desserts.
Food aside, make sure you check out the cool concept products that are dotted around and don’t be afraid to get up close and personal. This cafe is very much like your own living room.
