The first such event hosted by Bikers Café, Jumeirah Cruisin’ was a shout out to Dubai’s petrolhead fraternity. Attendance was by invite only, making for an exclusive event comprising a rich collection of elite supercars, delectable classics and exquisite custom bikes. It was literally a traffic stopper, with a staggering number of motorists on Jumeirah’s posh beach road either slowing down to a crawl or even parking their cars and popping over to the café to have a look at the awesome metal on display. Dubai Police also graciously accepted the invitation to the event, bringing along two of their newly acquired supercars, a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and a Ferrari FF, both proudly done up in police livery. Other highlights of the show, apart from the custom bikes, included a pair of Ford GTs, McLaren MP4-12C, classics like the Corvette Stingray, BMW 6 Series E24, Porsche 993, golden oldies like the Mini Cooper and Volkswagen Beetle, modified muscle cars, pick-ups, hot rods and many more. Spectators were also treated to the latest Audi RS4 Avant and Jaguar’s new F-Type sports car. Continue reading →

From its inception on the 6th of May 2011, Bikers Café was a very daring concept, an innovatively themed one-of-a-kind restaurant, the like of which no one had ever laid eyes upon in the UAE, or the Middle East for that matter. We gently nurtured it and savoured every minute of its progress, and now, on this very day, two years later, we take huge pride in saying that the ground-breaking café is a cheeky two years old. And what better way to celebrate the birthday than to have a big party, with all those customers and fans who’ve been with us all through, and the new ones who’re coming in for the very first time! And so it was yesterday, with a massive turnout of bikers and non-bikers attending the festivity. Continue reading →
A big shout out to our newest guests from the Kuwait Scooter Club, who rode Vespas over an incredible 1360 kilometres all the way to Dubai, UAE! The original plan was to ride from Kuwait to Italy, which was cancelled as they had to cross Syria, and with all the issues brewing in the country, it didn’t seem like a good idea. Continue reading →

First up, the bike you see here looks straight off the charts, something you’d read in the glossies about extremely skilled hands creating magic from bare, lifeless metal. And if you’ve heard of Virginia-based Classified Moto, you wouldn’t be wrong either. The gurus have concocted a decent number of extraordinary machines in the recent past, one being this awesome 1982 Yamaha XV920R. And the best part? We just got it over to Dubai, where it’s sitting pretty at Bikers Café! Continue reading →
