VOL.1’s Copycat

Post by Mark

Looking at the picture above you’d assume it was the VOL.1 location in Shuwaikh (pictured below), but in reality, it’s a new coffee shop in Saudi called 8oz. They basically just copy pasted the VOL.1 interior and opened up in Dammam. It’s funny and sad at the same time.

    Wow even the cups are copied! This would be barely acceptable if it was in Jeddah, but Dammam is too close to Kuwait and these people have obviously been here and visited Vol.1 enough times

    They can copy all the decorations they want… if I don’t get to see long dark hair flowing over tanned girls’ shoulders its not a cafe worth visiting.
