The winter pop-up experience was launched on January 27, and since then, it has been quite popular, especially on social media. People have been visiting the cafe mainly for coffee and sunset views of the desert.

Speaking about this pop-up experience, owner Ahmad Abdulla Alketbi said,

“The project has been immensely successful. People from across Dubai seem to know about it even though we’ve only been open for a month. We wanted to create something new for people who want to enjoy this weather and the beautiful UAE desert. Especially with the coronavirus, people want to go somewhere that is open, where social distancing is easily possible.”

On the location, Alketbi said it was chosen because it is right in the middle of the UAE and easily accessible. It is an eight-minute drive away from the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, which again is a must-visit place.

Thanking Dubai Tourism, Alketbi said,

“I want to thank Dubai Municipality, Dubai SME, Dubai Tourism and RTA for their support with this project. This year, we launched a bit late – but next year we will be bigger and better.”

If you are looking forward to visiting this cafe, then you must know that the One Degree, winter pop-up will be operational until the end of Ramadan. It is open from 2 pm to midnight every day.
