Accessible via the Dubai Mall Metro Link to Burj Vista Tower, The Six Board Game Cafe Dubai is a must-visit for all ages. Step inside with The Huntr now…
With free parking and a desirable Downtown Dubai address, The Six offers the unique opportunity to explore an impressive library of over 1000 board games. Opened in October 2019 and complete with super high ceilings, natural light and cosy corners, it’s the perfect place to while away a morning or afternoon with friends, family, colleagues, or solo. The castle wall mural, bold colours and central (real) olive tree lend the space a fairytale-esque vibe that had us feeling nostalgic for childhood and adventure.
Food-wise the grub is built to share and the menu is easy to snack from (bowl of cookies anyone?). We tried the Gravity Sliders (52AED for 2), Fully Loaded Mac and Cheese (45AED) – decadent mac and cheese topped with Chips Oman, the Volcano Cheese Fries (45AED) – fries loaded with jalapeno, chicken, Cheetos and Chips Oman. Plus the Tiger Roll Sushi (50AED) – a delicious combination of prawn tempura, cream cheese, mango, avocado, cucumber, and crab sticks with spicy mayo, teriyaki sauce, and The Six special sauce. And from the desserts menu, we opted to share the warm and crispy Churros (49AED).
Drinks-wise The Six is alcohol-free and offers a variety of mocktails, soft drinks, teas and coffees. The Flat White (25AED) was good and the signature Matcha Latte (30AED) was really creamy and delicious.
If you want to play games we recommend flagging down the in-house ‘Gamer’ – who will assist you in finding the perfect game, set it all up for you and explain the rules from A-Z. There’s a 35AED (per person) special for ‘Unlimited Play, Unlimited Time Unlock’.
Insider tip: Free WiFi is available. There is also a small range of games available to buy and take home. Open weekdays from 9am until midnight and weekends 9am until 2am.
