Mercato Shopping Mall, Dubai

4.0
#18 of 95 in Shopping in Dubai
Come to Mercato Shopping Mall for the experience of walking around a European Renaissance city in the middle of Dubai. This shopping center was built in 2002 and was designed to resemble a Mediterranean town in Italy, France, or Spain during the 15th and 16th centuries. Many visitors come to see the mall's Venetian-style marble and stone facades. Explore 59,900 sq m (645,000 sq ft) of shops, cafes, and entertainment spaces at this mall, named for the Italian word meaning "market."

  • Mercato Mall is very stylish and colorful. A little corner of Italy in Dubai Jumeirah. Stores is not very much, but there is no crowd and bustle.

  • If you are a shopping fanatic this is not a mall for you. While it has some big names (top shop, mango, massimo dutti, Gap) it is a small mall. What is nice about this place is that there is a lot of ...  more »

  • The Mercato mall is your typical neighbourhood mall. Not too big to knock you out and not too small to bore you. It is the typical place where you can get your stuff easy and fast without going through the pain of finding a parking spot and getting overwhelmed by crowds. It is located on Jumeirah road, in a very nice part of the city. So it is mainly accessible by road transportation. All taxis would know where it is. It also has very nearby bus stops. The metro does not reach this part of town but one could take it and then head on by calling a cab. I would suggest taking a cab all the way as it is easier. The mall is designed to reflect the streets of Italian villages. The different corridors are made of tiles just like the ones on the narrow streets of Rome and the decoration on the walls are painting of the Italian buildings and surroundings. The mall is very small compared to the enormous Emirates and Dubai malls, which makes it fun to go by. The second floor is mainly a small food court with the traditional options of McDonalds, kebab shops, etc. The ground floor is where most of the shops are. There is quite a variety of women, men and children closings from Zara to many others. The ground floor also has some special restaurants like the famous French Paul bistro or the great Shake Shack burger place. The mall also has a late Spinney’s supermarket. So if you happen to be staying in the vicinity, this is a great shopping choice with a wide variety of groceries. There is also a large Starbucks in the middle of the ground floor just on the entrance where you can sit and relax. It is a perfect place to wait for your wife while she does the different shops. I like Mercato mall. It is located away from the Dubai traffic centres and is quite fun to visit. It does not have the large variety of stores in the landmark malls, but is it much easier to cover and is a good place to shop for the little things that don’t need a huge mall.

  • It's a nice place to shop. Not over crowded. The food court is great. I highly recommend the Iranian food at Noon and Kebab. The family platter is amazing. Affordable price too.
  • You've got to love Mercato. Easy to get to, and not too big, I visit mainly for the cinema. The Italian theme and decor make it super picturesque and photogenic.
  • There are several reasons why people visit this mall. Some of these reasons may involve the enjoyment of the company of other people, while other reasons may concern the shopping opportunities a mall can offer. Whatever motivated you to visit Mercato, though, youre guaranteed to have a good time exploring the establishments different stores and services.
