The spot located in Al Quoz, was opened from early March and was closed on the 31st of that same month. Named, The Nap Bar, the pop-up by Smarin was considered as a placed that will offer those with heavy eyes a perfect place to rest their head for as long as they wish.

“I had the idea for the Nap Bar because when I’m walking in big cities, sometimes I take a break with a coffee but actually I need more of a real break,” founder Stephanie Marin, says.
