One Life first opened its doors in March 2016 as one of the first F&B concepts to open in Dubai Design District (d3). It was a small space with an even smaller kitchen but after some initial difficulties and lots of tinkering, we became a popular destination for people working in the district. So much so that in November 2017, we decided to rent the units adjacent and above us. The new & improved One Life, designed by our now great friend and d3 neighbour Fadi Sarieddine, was reborn in January 2019 after 8 months of excruciating construction pains. It is set over two beautifully designed floors and a great place for food, meetings, specialty coffee, freelancers, & events. 

Our mezzanine floor is kitted out with a projector/screen, blackout blinds, a badass sound system, flexible furniture, coffee bar, a coffee roaster, and we are able to accommodate up to 200 people. It's a great venue to host company meetings, community gatherings, product launches, baby showers, cultural evenings, movie nights or anything else you can think of.

If you are a freelancer, entrepreuneur, or just someone who is lucky enough to work for a pretty leniant organisation, you are welcome to use our space to work from. We have super fast internet, specialty coffee & a pretty good tie-up with Letswork which allows people to avail free tea & coffee & a 20% discount on food at a number of outlets including ours across the city!
