Did anybody say Instagram Worthy hotspots?
I guess 2018 is all about the most ”Instagrammable” hotspots. Whenever we visit a city, a country or any other place, the first thing we end up doing is open up our Instagram to check what the spots looks like. Does the food looks yummy? Is the interior cool? And, most important, do they have something special, which makes it worth going there to.. Yup.. To take a picture.
I’ve listed up some of my favorite spots, some you most probably want to visit whenever you’re in Dubai:
Simply had to start off with this spot. If you are a coffee lover, you should definitely check out Depresso Café, which is located in Umm Suqeim. At this small coffee shop, they don’t sell anything BUT coffee! However, they do give away a small treat while ordering a coffee; a doughnut, which perfectly fits on your cup of coffee.. And let’s be honest, we all want to share this coffee with our Instagram followers, right? Hehe
The Livingroom – Mercato Mall
I got so excited to share this Candy Floss drink with you. I think we would all agree that this coffee is the most Instagram worthy coffee you have ever seen. The coffee consists a lot of candy floss and you might want to share this sugar bomb.. Or try out any of the other available coffees and desserts.
This place is a true velvet heaven and the marble makes it even look more stunning than it already is. It’s simply a spot you would adore if you are aiming to shoot the right pictures for your Instagram 🙂
Do I really have to say more? These burgers, the (cheesy) fries, the drinks, they’re all super Instagram worthy! I think we all experienced that feeling that any picture of the Shake Shack burger made your jaw drop.. And obviously the first thing you would do after seeing this picture is screen shooting and forwarding it to your friends to schedule a Shake Shack visit.
If I crave burgers I definitely know where to go.. SHAKE SHACK! Yum!
FlamingoRoom by Tashas – Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel
If you follow me on Instagram (@rowananahar) you’ve most probably seen this spot popping up on my stories several times. Besides the fact that this place looks amazing, with a pretty pink interior it also serves amazing food and drinks. This spot can definitely be added to my top 5 favourite spots in Dubai.
Black Tap – Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel
Also located in the Al Naseem Hotel is Black Tap. A hotspot I actually found via Instagram. And to be fair you cannot really miss out on this shake.. So I simply had to try this out and choose for the chocolate milkshake. Although there was a crazy amount of chocolate in this shake, it was definitely something I did not regretted. It really does taste as good as it looks.
I would advise to take this shake as a dessert after a nice dinner at FlamingRoom (see above) 🙂
Arabian Courtyard – One & Only Royal Mirage
Whenever you are in Dubai you obviously have to visit a spot with an Arabic vibe. If I have to recommend any place, my recommendation would straight away go to the Arabian Courtyard located in the stunning hotel, Only & Only Royal Mirage in the Dubai Marina. As soon as you visit this Courtyard you will be able to leave the big city behind you for a bit and relax with a shisha. And.. Again this spot looks simply amazing.

The Hamptons – Jumeirah Island
The recently opened Hamptons is a spot you just want to visit for, again, the coffee. But this spot is not only known for the cool coffee art, but also for their outstanding breakfasts. I will save you the amount of scrolls through this post by not sharing my breakfasts shots haha. Whenever you visit this spot, make sure to taste their macaroons, as these are AMAZING. Imagine that I never used to like macaroons.. But since the Hamptons macaroons.. Wow lol.
The Hamptons at Jumeirah Island is a bliss spot which makes you feel like you’re in a different city. Must visit!
Just imagine what your picture would look like while having a slice of one the below cakes. Well, let me tell you that, that picture would look absolutely breathtaking and so are these cakes. I had to mention this place, as I just cannot get over these amazing – good looking – cakes. The Homebakery is well known for their cakes, desserts and coffees.
After seeing the above spots, I think we can safely say that whenever a place is new and comes with a pink interior it is straight away an Instagram worthy spot these days. Well, so is Parlour Boutique, located in the World Trade Centre area.
Parlour Boutique is the ultimate breakfast/lunch spot to hang around with your friends whenever you are around that area. Whenever you visit this place, make sure to check out the afternoon tea they offer, as it’s affordable, yummy and looks fancy! All that you need 🙂
Boston Lane – Courtyard Al Quoz
Last but not least is this hidden gem called Boston Lane. Boston Lane is located at the Courtyard in Al Quoz and is the perfect spot to work from while enjoying your coffee. And again, how FAB is this decor. Gotta love it.
