Here’s what you’ll find inside Palm Jumeirah’s Nakheel Mall

By

The brand new mall is set to open later this year…

Nakheel Mall has been under construction since 2015, and its opening later this year has been hotly anticipated by Dubai residents, especially by those living near, or on, the Palm Jumeirah.

Set over 4.5 million square feet, Nakheel Mall will span five floors and play host to over 350 retail shops, restaurants and leisure attractions, with underground parking space to accommodate 4,000 vehicles.

The mall will also feature two breathtaking waterfalls that cascade down 65 feet into the mall and a fine-dining rooftop plaza with epic views of the Palm, Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.

Here’s what we know is going to be at Nakheel Mall so far…

 

Food and Beverage

Depachika

It wouldn’t be a Dubai mall without a food hall and the new one at Nakheel looks super-cute, with renders showing a coffee roastery, a bakery and some artisanal food sections. It’s named ‘Depachika’, which is the Japanese word describing the basement of department stores where food and groceries are sold. Get ready to come home with a basket filled with goods you never knew you needed.

Shake Shack

If you’ve long been a Dubai resident, you’ll probably know that when it comes to a comforting burger that does exactly what it says on the tin, then you can’t go too far wrong with Shake Shack. They keep it simple but oh-so-satisfying, and you can bump up your order with their crinkle cut chips and creamy thickshakes.

Shakeaway

If you’re a huge milkshake fan then you’ll be positively bouncing at the news that Shakeaway, the world’s largest milkshake bar company, will have their very own spot at the new mall. Think rows and rows of iconic chocolate bars, cookies, cakes and sweets, just waiting for you to select your favourites to be blended into a milkshake-a-la-you. From Cadbury to Milkybar, Skittles to Starburst and Oreo’s to Lotus Biscoff, they have over 180 flavours and millions of combinations to choose from. Looking for a slightly less calorific option? They’ll also be serving frozen yoghurt, smoothies ‘fit and healthy’ shakes and shaved ice options.

SUSHISAMBA

While this one isn’t opening in Nakheel Mall, it’ll open 51 floors up in Palm Tower, so deserves a mention anyway. The high-end restaurant will serve up a mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine and will sit on the 51st floor of the currently under construction Palm Tower, with panoramic views of The Palm, Arabian Gulf and Dubai Marina skyline. Don’t stop holding your breath just yet though, as it’s not going to open until late 2020.

The Noodle House

Everyone’s favourite noodle house named, ahem, The Noodle House, will open up a brand new branch at Nakheel Mall. Make your noodles just how you like them at the Asian street food restaurant, choosing your favourite noodles, loading it up with veggies, then adding your favourite sauce and protein for a flavour-packed lunch or dinner. Other menu highlights include street food bites like chicken satay and wasabi prawns or steamy crab or beef-filled bao’s or even golden crispy duck. Mmmm.
