Dhaka : Do you wonder what the world would look like upside down? A relatively new entertainment/recreational facility in the capital-Upside Down Gallery-gives the city's fun-lovers a glimpse of this new and unique experience.

A tour of the Upside Down Gallery at Lalmatia would send guests in a topsy-turvy town with optical illusions, complete with everything upside down-a house and an office with real objects, among others.

Visit the place for a fun-filled day with friends and family, enjoying an experience of a lifetime.

"Such recreational facilities are very popular across the world among tourists and locals. Hence, it was high time such modern entertainment venues opened in Dhaka for the fun loving city dwellers and visitors alike," said Abdullah Al Mahabub, Co-Founder, Upside Down Gallery to The Bangladesh Monitor.

Upside Down Gallery offers a unique experience that no other conventional gallery in the capital features. The gallery is a breeding ground for creativity and socialisation, making it a great place for groups of children, friends, and families to play while exercising the mind, he added.

At Upside Down Gallery, visitors can simply leave it to their imagination to turn the world they see backward, inside-out, or upside-down, he further mentioned.

The place features seven rooms-a bedroom, dining room, living room and an office space, among others.

There is also a room full of interesting illusions that visitors could enjoy.

Upside Down Gallery offers visitors something new and unique to enjoy compared to the limited same-old activities the city offers.

Established in 2019, the 3500 sqft long facility currently welcomes 100 visitors a day, most on weekends.  

A visit to the one-of-a-kind gallery costs adults BDT 400 per person and kids up to 10 years of age BDT 250 while kids from 0-3 years of age can enter for free.

The place also offers photography packages at BDT 300 for 50 DSLR photos and BDT 500 for 100 photos while mobile photography is, of course, free.

It remains open every day from 11 am to 10 pm.

It may be mentioned here, the place is ideal for vloggers, photorgaphers, social media influencers, and filmmakers to shoot and create contents as well.

Interestingly, there is a restaurant named Pizza in Law too at the facility. Visitors can finish off their fun-filled day with mouthwatering pizzas, wings, meat box, chicken strips, rolls, coffees and mocktails, among others, at the restaurant.

Upside Down Gallery offers a combo package that includes entry to the gallery as well as pizzas and drinks at the restaurant for 2-5 people at BDT 400 per person.

Together with the restaurant, Upside Down Gallery turns out to be a great place for events as it can accommodate 40 people at a time.

While talking about future plans, the Co-Founder mentioned, they are planning to launch outlets in Cox's Bazar and Chattogram soon.
