A leafy suburb that’s been transformed into a lively district, Al Wasl is home to some of the city’s finest retail boutiques, streetside cafes and trendy hotspots.
Once a quiet neighbourhood made up primarily of residential villas, Al Wasl is now buzzing with some of the city’s most happening hotspots. Meaning ‘the connection’ in Arabic, Al Wasl runs parallel to Jumeirah Beach Road and Sheikh Zayed Road, and, as the name suggests, is the perfect place for locals and visitors to connect.
The flagship attraction here is City Walk on Al Safa Street. Foodies, fashionistas and families flock to this urban precinct of landscaped boulevards and graffiti-style artwork. A delight to explore on foot, you’ll find pathways with people perusing street art, upscale boutiques and Instagrammbale cafés.
City Walk comes alive particularly during Dubai’s favourite shopping festivals, with musical performances and live entertainment acts. The popular Coca-Cola Arenaalso shares this address, hosting a packed calendar of big-name concerts, comedy shows and sports events.
