Mercato Shopping Mall
Situated in the heart of one of Dubai's most prestigious areas, Jumeirah, Mercato Shopping Mall instantly impresses with its unusual and striking style and sophistication. Eschewing the ordinary, modernist styles of most shopping malls, Mercato instead opts for exquisite classical Italian architecture. Its quaint cobbled streets, beautiful piazzas and lovingly recreated period details will instantly and magically transport you to Tuscany and Venice in the era of the Renaissance. The mall respectfully recreates the archetypal Mediterranean village – focused, of course, around the heart of any village – the market.
The architecture may reflect historical styles, but the retail offer at Mercato Shopping Mall is modern and cutting-edge. In its multitude of shops and service outlets, you will find an impressive array of international brand names and luxury goods. From sparkling jewellery to stylish fashion, and from chic homeware to delicious confectionery, Mercato delivers a hand-picked, expertly curated selection of the popular, the useful, the affordable and the luxurious from amongst the top global and regional retail names. Popular with locals as well as tourists, Mercato's broad appeal reflects the care and attention it gives to both its retail offer and its relaxing, charming environment.
Stepping into Mercato Shopping Mall, you'll magically find yourself strolling through an authentic Mediterranean town. You'll experience a unique juxtaposition of authentic Renaissance architecture and art with modern shopping and leisure facilities – combining to create an unusual, captivating and welcoming ambience.
Mercato recognises that not everyone wants to shop all the time, of course. For younger visitors, Fun City will keep them amused and entertained for hours whilst mum and dad hit the shops. You can catch a movie at Mercato's very own cinema complex, or simply pause and relax in the beautiful atrium, which floods the building with natural sunlight and an outdoor ambience.
When it comes to food and drink, Mercato Shopping Mall has a lot to offer – as you would naturally expect from a place that prides itself on its Italian heritage. Enjoy a refreshing coffee in one of the quaint street cafés, or treat yourself to a sumptuous meal in one of the many fine eateries.
