DIFC: A City Within a City

   
Dubai, U.A.E.

With its striking urban design and innovative use of space, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is highly distinctive with its angular geometric shapes that create spaces that would otherwise have been wasted.  Best of all, unlike many part of Dubai, it's totally walkable.  Along the open air walkways shaded by buildings and trees, visitors can enjoy al fresco dining, street entertainment, window shopping and people watching in this city-within-a-city.

Gateway to Inspirational Art Collections

Within the zone is a host of wildly varied art, just waiting to be seen.  From the modern and contemporary to more traditional and authentic Middle Eastern offerings, there is truly something for very taste.  Either enjoy a leisurely stroll along the walkway and gaze across fascinating pieces or whisk yourself off for an hour or two for some dedicated art exploration and delve into the more extensive galleries.  Highlights include Art Sawa, The Farjam Collection and Cube Arts.

Immerse in a World Full of Flavour

DIFC has been conceived to offer an extensive variety of restaurants and cafes to suit every taste and occasion. You can find cosy cafes overlooking the hustle and bustle of activity such as Caribou Coffee.  Or perhaps, you are in dire need of a quick bite during a busy day - 1762 and many more are ready and waiting for you to try a healthy midday meal. When it comes to fine dining, there are more internationally renowned chefs and global brands in this postal code than any other in the UAE, with options such as La Petite Maison and Zuma - just to name two.  For something completely different, check out Firebird Diner by Michael Mina, serving up nostalgic American fare in the heart of Dubai.

Pop to the Shops

Shopping has become synonymous with Dubai - here it is not just a sweet treat it’s a sport, attracting more and more travellers annually, keen to get hold of the latest collections and limited edition pieces. DIFC is smaller but precious part of the Dubai shopping puzzle with bespoke designer boutiques, and with tailoring available upon request, guests can experience true shopping luxury within the vicinity.  

Built for Beautification

Not only is DIFC architecturally and aesthetically appealing but it also helps visitors to feel pampered too. Home to top names in beauty such as Toni & Guy and NStyle, guests can feel assured that all of their needs will be catered too.

Homebase, or the Perfect Break During a Day in DIFC

Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre, with its upper lobby opening onto DIFC's pedestrian walkways, is the ideal place to stop in for lunch during a day of shopping, after work drinks, or late night dining after the clubs close.  And why not take the elevator "home" to a room or suite at Four Seasons, with access to the Hotel's rooftop pool oasis?
