From the floating bridge and houses to restaurants in Dubai, another really cool floating attraction has been launched — a floating cafe.

Dreams Boat has created special floating cafés that are like small restaurants floating on the water. These cafés have two special spots — one near Vilaggio Versace Hotel in Jaddaf Waterfront, and the other at D-Marin in Business Bay.

A really fancy open boat with a couch on three sides and a center table, it gives the feeling of an open-deck restaurant. With contemporary furnishings, the interior appears exquisite. Everything is beautiful, and the lighting is comfortable and gentle.

The first cafe adventure starts at the Vilaggio Versace hotel in Jaddaf Waterfront, and moves along a calm Dubai canal, showing passengers beautiful sights. Then, it comes back to the Jameel Art Center before going back to the deck.

The second café is at D-Marin in Business Bay. This journey lets you see the views of the Dubai skyline and the famous Burj Khalifa as the café glides through the water. Then, it returns to the D-Marine spot.

Dreams Boat plans to add more of these floating cafes at Dubai Creek Harbor in October, giving people even more chances for fun.

But here's the coolest part — the cafe can slowly turn around in a circle! This means that while you eat, you get to see all the amazing buildings in Dubai from different angles.

Timings, pricing

These floating cafes can hold up to nine people and the ride lasts around 45 minutes. There are two prices — one is for 1 to 2 people and costs Dh450, and the other is for 3 to 6 people and is Dh550. This pricing is special for the summer.

The cafes are open from 6pm until 1am and offer tasty things to eat and drink like water, soft drinks, coffee, tea, dry fruits, nuts, halwa Omani, dates, mamool (a sweet treat), and chips.

The boats are powered by electricity and a captain is present at all times to steer, as well as manage other operations.

Lots of different people enjoy the cafés. Couples like them for romantic moments, families celebrate special times, businesses have meetings there, and individuals go for amazing views of Dubai.
