A short drive from the Burj Khalifa, you’ll find City Walk, an expansive retail, entertainment and residential development which is the perfect outdoor spot on a winter evening. Covering more than 929sqm, the newer phase opened with more than 60 new shops, restaurants, sidewalk cafes and hotels, even a wellness centre. Inside, find thriving greenery and a London-styled boulevard of shops and restaurants.
Dining options include coffee at Brass Cafe, gastronomy at Farzi Café, Bubo artistic morsels, New York-style fare at Serendipity3, and Tartufi & Friends, home of truffles. Some of the prestige stores now open include Geek Nation, Georg Jensen, Dinh Van Paris, Karl Lagerfeld, the high-fashion Level Kids, French fashion house Carven, plus Barbara Bui, Weekend Max Mara, Rag & Bone and Essentiel Antwerp.
Shopping aside, visit one of the world’s most unusual new-age mosques, enjoy Mattel’s Play Town (and a rendezvous with Barney, Bob the Builder and Angelina Ballerina), watch a film, find your inner-child at the Hub Zero gaming centre, or immerse yourself in green at the instantly popular Green Planet, a state-of-art bio dome.
