Dubai Mall

Dubai Mall is the world’s largest destination for shopping, entertainment and leisure, located next to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Featuring over 1,200 retail stores, two major department stores and hundreds of food and beverage outlets, Dubai Mall covers more than 1 million sqm – an area equivalent to 200 football pitches.

For lovers of high fashion, over 70 signature outlets beckon your attention, including retailers such as Bloomingdale’s and Galeries Lafayette, the first in the Middle East. For haute couture, head to Fashion Avenue and the latest collections from world-famous brands such as Versace, Burberry and more. You can also find the finest gold jewellery in the Gold Souk as well as the latest in footwear at Level Shoes.

The world’s largest mall has grown even larger with the 2019 opening of Dubai Mall Zabeel, a significant expansion that welcomed a host of new lifestyle experiences, dining options, retail options and 3,000 new parking spaces. The Zabeel extension adds almost 15,000sqm of lifestyle space, with an incredible array of art on display – all linked by a fully air-conditioned link bridge from Dubai Mall.

Dubai Mall opening hours:
Retailers: 10am – 11pm Mon-Thu; 10am – midnight Fri-Sun
Food courts and cafés: 10am – midnight Mon-Thu; 10am – 1am Fri-Sun
Waterfront promenade restaurants: 10am – 2am daily

Things to do at Dubai’s biggest mall

Dubai Mall is the ultimate family entertainment destination with The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, the Olympic-sized Dubai Ice Rink, children’s ‘edutainment’ concept Kidzania and a massive indoor cinema complex – just some of the ways to keep everyone busy.

Don’t miss the indoor fountain (one of the most photographed spots in the mall), or The Village, which features a retractable roof opened in the winter months to offer shoppers an outdoor experience. There’s so much to do at Dubai Mall, it’s easy to spend an entire day there.

Dining at Dubai Mall

With more than 200 places to eat, from fast food and snack stalls to delightful cafes and fine dining restaurants, Dubai Mall has a vast range of dining options. Head to one of the food courts on the lower-ground or second floors of the main mall, or in the Zabeel extension, for quick bites – or try out some of the best restaurants in the mall.

One fantastic feature of many Dubai Mall restaurants is the stunning view of The Dubai Fountain and the Burj Khalifa – head to Joe’s Café, Novikov Café, or WAFI Gourmet for some of the best views. Alternatively, grab some food to go and head out of Dubai Mall’s lower-ground floor to get even closer to the Dubai Fountain, or check out some other venues with great views nearby.

In 2023, Dubai Mall opened its Chinatown district, the first in Dubai, and decorated with traditional Chinese features, along with a giant panda sculpture and striking neon lights. Chinatown is home to great Chinese and Asian street food – be sure not to miss Hawker Chan, the Dubai branch of Singapore’s Michelin-starred eatery.
