♡ Maisan 15 ♡
We featured this hidden gem of a venue back in March as part of a Real Wedding feature when Dubai couple Tamila & Ahmed held their effortlessly cool, retro wedding at Maisan 15. Check out the full write up here. This Barsha homegrown haunt is somewhat of an artist’s den. The eclectic combination of quirky art, vintage furniture, delicious honest food and the odd original Warhol and Hirst knocking about, makes Maisan 15 one of the most unique venues on offer in the UAE. Although this eccentric hot spot is not known for hosting weddings, it is an amazing alternative venue for a very intimate, unconventional, wedding setting. With inside and beautiful, al fresco, outside dining options too, we think Maisan 15 could be one of Dubai’s best kept secrets.
Address: Beside Maisan Towers, Barsha South, Dubai
