Al Maktab Café is a unique concept, incorporating the authentic Damascene café atmosphere with a modern design. Having 2 locations yet, Al-Maktab has more than 600 seats in each location with indoor and outdoor spaces, to be considered as the largest cafés in Damascus. They take advantage of their large spaces by offering its customers a comfortable and friendly environment with a wide selection of food and drinks. Furthermore, Al-Maktab offers every month social and cultural events such as musical performances, tournaments in traditional café games, live streaming of the biggest sports events, and interactive activities for children.
Al-Maktab is an Arabic word meaning “the Office”. It is the place where you go every day. In the same way, we encourage our guests to come to Al-Maktab every day.
NIG’s ambitious plan is to expand Al-Maktab Café’s operation to ultimately make it a potential franchise for investors. With two locations already in operation (Al-Qussour, east of Damascus and Dummar, west of Damascus), its reputation is growing day after day.
Al-Maktab Café Branding was introduced as a distinct entity under NIG to support the expansion of the cafés by setting up guidelines and procedures, refining the business strategy and developing the brand.
