About Arty Cafe

There is nothing more relaxing than letting your imagination flow and expressing emotions by painting on an empty canvas while sipping your favorite coffee. Arty Café allows you to do just that, making it a perfect place to unwind after a long day at work. Located in Jeddah’s Al-Zahra district, Arty Café is open Saturday-Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Fridays

Artful ambiance

The cafe has art supplies ranging from coloring pencils to acrylic paints and brushes of all sizes. The atmosphere, lighting, and background music serve as the perfect encouragement for a room full of passionate artists to paint and create ceramics. As well as being a creative art platform, it also offers coffee and desserts such as the popular iced Spanish latte.

Simple decorations

Arty Café’s design is characterized by wooden tables and chairs stained with multiple colors and features an art studio with integrated supplies. The walls are decorated with various paintings by the café’s workers. Some tables are made from raw brick and recycled paintbrushes.
