Top ways to experience OliOli
The area
Neighbourhood: Al Quoz
Al Quoz sits literally at the halfway point between old and new Dubai. At first sight it has little to recommend it: warehouses and factories dominate the area, with some residential areas on the outskirts. Heavy goods vehicles roar up and down the roads and laborers stop at small hole-in-the-wall cafes for a cheap lunch. But it is fast becoming a magnet for art lovers: Alserkal Avenue is a significant contemporary art hub, home to 25 galleries and arts spaces, with ambitious expansion plans. The galleries host exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, auctions, and community events. If you love art, pass by to visit the galleries, it’s a great opportunity to get a sense of art and community in the region and to sit alongside key influencers and artists as they go about their day.

Best Play and Learn area for KIDS
May 2021 • Family
The best play and learn area for kids, consisting of amazing play galleries like the Air, Fun Game, Water, Toshi's Net, Toddlers, Lego, Future Park etc. Mommy's seeking to develop your child through fun play than this is the right place.

Its all about the brainchild of parents who are passionate about positive play and the power of imagination.

My boy thoroughly enjoys all the galleries and never wants to come back.

Inspiring Imagination at OliOli
Apr 2021
Our kids absolutely love OliOli, it's their favourite indoor activity in Dubai. Toshi's Nets is undoubtedly the star of the show, such a unique play space inspiring their imagination. They also love seeing their creations come to life in the Future Park and the Water Gallery is always the perfect way to finish a visit. This school holidays they've added extra challenges with Game On! for added fun, great seeing the staff so involved & encouraging with the children, the activities cover a wide age range with mine between 6 and 11 years old all keenly interested still to get involved. When your kids are already asking when you'll be back before you've even left, you know you've found a winner!
