Is it worth going or not?
Shopping center Dubai Marina Mall on Dubai standards small – only 36,200 square meters of square on four floors. For comparison, Mall of Emirates has an area of 220,000 square meters, and Dubai Mall 350,000 square meters of only leased area.

Despite the modest sizes, a set of shops in Dubai Marina Mall decent, one evening, it will provide both adults and children. But first things first.
Official site TC Dubai Marina Mall
It exists, but only in Arabic and English, there is no. And even if you know English, is of little help, since the information on this site "cat laugh," even mall card is not. Perhaps we are on this page will tell more and more interesting.
Official site: dubaimarinamall.Com
The first useful page on the official website – a page with the current and upcoming events, www address.dubaimarinamall.com / events /
But these events are sometimes interesting for tourists. For example, at the time of updating this article (February 2021) announced the event «Celebrate Chinese New Year» in honor of the Chinese New Year celebration. You need to spend a single check from 150 dirhams and can participate the lottery.
The second potentially interesting page – it offers, but in 90% of cases, they relate only to the residents of Dubai, the tourist useless. www address.dubaimarinamall.com / offer-listing /
Four main questions
Four basic questions of tourists: "Where do I get the shopping center map?"," Where to eat?", "Where is the supermarket?"" Where do they sell alcohol?".
Here on these issues we will be responsible in the first place. And about the shops and entertainment talk after them.
Map of Dubai Marina Mall shopping center
The official website of the card, there is only store locator. If you want to understand in advance the location of a store, go to the official website and enter the name of the store in the search string (with a magnifying glass icon).
Card in paper form can be taken directly at the entrance to the booth information.
Where to eat?
The range of catering establishments in the Dubai Marina Mall is not the widest – 20 points. Fast foods are concentrated in the food court and restaurants are scattered throughout the shopping center, which is not very convenient.
A food court on the top floor (level 2). There is a McDonald`s, KFC, D&# 246; ner&Gyros, Cinnabon, Tortilla, Dabang Kathi&Curry. In the cinema, there burgernaya Guy’s Burger Joint.
At the level of P (ground floor) there is an Italian restaurant Carluccio’s, organic-snack Le Pain Quotidien, cafes Vivel Patisserie’s, Shinsen-sushi bar, Asian cuisine restaurant Wagamama.
Also at the level of P has a shop Bateel, where you can buy dates elite varieties and date sweets. Details in our article "Date in the UAE".
At G (second floor) there is a CAFF coffee shop&# 232; Nero, Burgerina Five Guys, Confectionery and Cafe Shakespeare and Co, Coffee Shop Starbucks, Cafe Coffee Club, Indian Restaurant Zafran.
Where is the supermarket?
The Waitrose supermarket is at P (lower floor). Product prices here are higher than on an average of Dubai, but not much. Read our detailed article "Prices for products in the UAE".
The supermarket has its cooking and bakery, which is very convenient – you can buy full-fledged dishes with you, and it will be cheaper than in cafes or eateries. There is a large department with baby food. An interesting point that there is a pork department here that for the UAE is a rarity.
Where to buy alcohol?
Alcoholic store is called "African + Eastern". It is located on the floor B2 (it is Parking L1), it is an underground floor at once below P. Near the Waitrose supermarket there is a travelator, you need to go down on it down.
Despite the amendments to the laws of November 8, 2020, the license system remains in Dubai yet. Now there is a simplified procedure for obtaining a license for tourists. The license is issued in a foreign passport, do not forget to take it with you. Term of such a license – 30 days. Just in the store "African + Eastern" will be issued (free of charge).
We remind you that despite the amendments to the laws of November 8, 2020, drinking in a public place or even in a drunk in a public place in the UAE remains a crime. Details in our article "Alcohol in Dubai and other Emirates".
Alcohol prices in the UAE high. For example, a bottle of 1 liter of whiskey Ballantines costs 233 Dirhams, at the time of the actualization of this article 4200 rubles. And in Moscow in the intersection it costs 1500 rubles. On whiskey, cognac, rum, tequila, brandy and gin here prices are 3 times higher! Current currency rates See our article "Dirham UAE".
However, there are vodka for 30-40 dirhams for 0.7. So everyone can find a drink on the pocket.
Where to change currency?
Al Ansari Exchange is at the level G, right from the entrance. The course is very good, but there is a commission.
The Department of Bank Emirates NBD is located at the level of P, near the central intersection. The course here is worse, but there is no commission.
To better navigate in currency exchange issues, read our article "Where and how to change money in the UAE".
Where to buy a SIM card?
In the shopping center Dubai Marina Mall, no offices of DU or Etisalat. But the SIM cards are sold in the Axiom Telecom store, which is located at the lower level P, opposite the Waitrose supermarket.
