Eclectic and indie aren't 2 words that exactly spring to mind when you think Dubai. So any steps towards redressing this grevious omission are more than welcome. The 5Green Art Gallery - a funky little outpost of fashion, photography, art and impromptu film screenings/ poetry readings - is one such bright 'n bold little step. Selling everything from Ts, to lomography cameras, to fringe art+decor magazines sourced from around our crazy world, 5Green is parts that sexy girl you run into at the laundromat/ parts your weirdly trippy, geeky older cousin. And loveable, all the same.

The clothes in here aren't really all that hot, and ridiculously overpiced. So give those a miss, and rummage through the beads and other knick-knacks they've got strewn about. There's almost always an exhibition of some sort on in here, with a heavy accent on some local flavour, and the result is a pretty interesting collage-like peephole to Middle Eastern pop art/culture.
