Ramadan is a time to slow down. A time to be mindful of our temperament, our consumption, and our presence.This year we want you to take a trip to another era in Alserkal's Slow Cafe by KAVE.

Follow us to a time when sitting down, knitting, playing backgammon to the sounds of Um Kalthoum, and the smell of sizzling Qatayef reigned supreme. In order to get the maximum experience and feel the presence, we ask that you drop your phones in grandma’s old sewing box and be present in whatever you are doing, whether it is slowly eating, drinking, giving back, or playing board games.

KAVE, The Story of Things, is an up-cycling cafe concept that takes people back to their ancestral roots. Kave aims to tell the stories of the things we buy so we are more mindful of our consumption habits and the impact they have on the environment, the manufacturers, and communities beyond any one person’s reach.
