Alserkal Avenue

“What can I do after Iftar?” Go to Alserkal Avenue

Dubai’s belly is rumbling, but for something more than just Iftar! As the sun sets during Ramadan, Alserkal Avenue transforms into a vibrant hub. It is an electrifying post-Iftar rendezvous, with movie nights under the stars, edible art that’ll make your jaw drop, and enough cultural connections to make you feel like a citizen of the world – all in one night!

KHAMSA lists five post-Iftar things you can do at Alserkal Avenue.

١. Lights, Camera, Action : Cinema Akil

Forget predictable popcorn flicks – here, they’ve got a specially curated selection of Ramadan movies waiting to take you on a cinematic adventure. Dive into the magic of classic gems or let their awesome picks surprise you. Trust us, they never disappoint! Plus, if your tummy’s still rumbling after Iftar, popcorn (and maybe some delicious dates!) are a must-have there.

٢. Deeper Connections and Artistic Delights: From March 23–31

Feeling contemplative after your culinary adventure? The Avenue offers a haven for the soul.
