    Mercato Mall: A smaller mall with a buzz.

    by colin_bramso Updated Apr 9, 2012

    Mercato Mall is in the upmarket beachside suburb of Jumeirah, and the style of the mall reflects that. It's designed to represent Venice - and considering it's a new shopping mall it's actually a pretty good interpretation of Venice.

    There are the usual designer stores, a supermarket, plenty of very nice food outlets, cafes & restaurants, antiques, jewellery, Persian carpets, souvenirs and services such as hairdressing.

    Much more of a friendly buzz about the place than in the larger malls.

    Like many of Dubai's malls, it's worth visiting to look at the mall itself as much as the shops within it.

    Venice in Dubai! Central court. Starbucks under the glass dome. A good impression of Venice. Interesting exterior.

    The Mercato: Are we in Italy?

    by leanne_pearc Updated May 19, 2006

    We went to this mall and were amazed how well everything looked like italy! The shops were expensive - all the brand names. The one shop we went into thinking i could buy a dress turned out to be the most expensive - $5000.00 AUD!

    Inside the mall Stunning!

    Mercato Mall: A taste of Italy in Jumeirah

    by Escadora7 Written Aug 15, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yet another mall in Dubai! This one is built in Italian Renaissance style - the only one in Jumeirah. It is not as big as most of the other malls, but the European style gives it an air of comfort and cozyness.

    - Spinney's supermarket
    - over 90 upmarket outlets
    - food court
    - coffee shops
    - a store entirely devoted to Barbie
    - cinema complex

    What to buy: Dubai = Shopping Mecca! Buy anything.

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy.
