Mirdif City Centre
Anyone who is looking to keep their family entertained while they shop should take a look at the Mirdif City Centre mall. The shopping centre combines exceptional leisure facilities with some of Dubai's top retailers to make it a compelling destination for visitors of all ages.
Among the more than 430 stores in the mall is a Carrefour supermarket, an Emax electrical goods store and a Home Centre. There are also well-known international brands like Debenhams, Pottery Barn and Forever 21. Between these and the many smaller retailers, visitors to the mall should be spoiled for choice across a whole range of popular items.
The mall also has a range of more than 80 eateries for shoppers who get a little peckish during their visit. With so much choice, it could be difficult to pick a favourite for your meal.
The mall's leisure offerings truly set it apart from the other malls in Dubai. There is an indoor sky diving centre, which makes for an exciting interlude between browsing the aisles and picking up a bite to eat. In addition, the mall has a ten screen Vox cinema with the only ExtremeScreen Cinema in the United Arab Emirates. This offers improved picture and sound quality over a normal cinema screen.
There are a range of attractions to keep younger visitors busy. These include Little Explorers, Magic Planet and AquaPlay, all of which offer activities aimed at entertaining and educating children of various ages. There is also a ten pin bowling alley and an innovative interactive soccer attraction called Soccer Circus.
The mall is well used by local residents and contains a range of community facilities that may also be of interest to visitors to Dubai. These include medical facilities, a fitness centre and a spa. There are also places where visitors can indulge in personal grooming.
Mirdif City Centre contains enough parking for 7,000 cars. The mall has 12 entry points on various levels and three dedicated bridges that make it easily accessible for visitors both on foot and on four wheels.
