At first glance, cars and coffee seem like a weird combination. But the more you think about it, the more sense it makes. The common thread that ties vintage car enthusiasts with coffee aficionados is an appreciation for fine craftsmanship.
And Dubai’s home to a café that embodies this combination.
Meet DRVN: The lovechild of a café and a car museum
Located in Bluewaters, the first thing you notice about DRVN is the sheer scale of the outlet. Featuring rare and vintage cars encased in glass boxes, the café also has a car lift that’s the linchpin to the DRVN experience.
Unbelievably, DRVN changes the lineup of cars every week!
So, what is it? A café? A museum?
“DRVN is a gallery, and everything we display here is art. Our coffee, our machines, our pizza are art. And the cars are also displays of art.”Rashed Al Fahim – Founder
Coffee as fine as the cars
DRVN takes its coffee very seriously.
Featuring a lineup of carefully chosen blends, DRVN roasts its own beans. And the icing on the cake? They sell the beans separately! Almost forgot, they also serve breakfast all day.
The best time to visit DRVN
A major part of the DRVN experience is aided by floor-to-ceiling windows. The café/museum/gallery is best experienced when the sun’s out and the natural light streams in, allowing you to truly appreciate the treasures of DRVN.
It’s a good thing that the weather is really good now.
Hurry along. And let us know how you liked it.
