A new restaurant called Akiba Dori – Akiba is short for Akihabara, a Tokyo shopping district famous for video games, anime, manga, and computer goods is set up in Dubai. Dori means ‘street’ – has transformed the Middle East’s beacon of Tokyo-style urban culture.
Akiba Dori is founded by Samer Hamadeh in Dubai – UAE for those who are looking for a slice of Tokyo. The Japanese capital is home to a multitude of treasures, and it showcases a large part of what Japanese culture is all about. However, Tokyo is home to an urban culture and is related treats that’s exceptional and its own. This creatively decorated, bright space is split into four different areas (a coffee shop, a pizzeria, a bar and a retro games arcade) that is set up with each other. This certainly seems to be a part, as “style over substance” seems to be at key.
Akiba Dori is open daily from noon to midnight at d3 on Ras Al Khor Road.
