A charming art gallery in the 'old' part of town.

Nestled in the windy alleyways of Dubai's 'historic' part of town (it's over 20 years old) sits this charming art gallery. Focussing on contemporary work from artists across the Middle East, the XVA has become a firm favourite on the local art scene, helped enormously by its intimate setting close to the Dubai Creek and vibrant textile souk. The art gallery also features a cool, boutique XVA Hotel which is highly recommended, plus a great cafe serving a decent selection of vegetarian dishes.
