Mall trawling is exhausting. As much as we love looking for the perfect new season finds, it’s never a quick pop-in-pop-out situation. We’ve all been there – your feet hurt, you’ve already stopped for your second coffee, and you still haven’t found exactly what you’re looking for.
The Dubai Mall to the rescue. The world’s biggest mall has come up with the ultimate solution for weary shoppers by introducing sleep pods.
The pods are located in a quiet space in the P2 level entrance of the Grand Parking, and you can take an hour’s nap for Dhs40, three hours for Dhs95, and Dhs20 for every additional hour. Pillows are available to rent for Dhs20.
There is a socket so that you can charge your phone while you rest, and have a shutter that can be pulled across for privacy.
This comes after The Dubai Mall launched a brand new extension called Fashion Avenue, which is home to 150 luxury brands, including a host of new flagship stores for some of the industry’s biggest names including Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Cartier, Symphony, Mikimoto, Rolex and the relocated Hermès boutique.
Fashion Avenue, The Dubai Mall
Another new addition is the Harper’s Bazaar media lounge. Accessible to Fashion Avenue clientele, the chic space is inspired by a modern interpretation of Art Deco – think brass detailing and structural shapes partnered with shades of blush pink and dove grey - and fitted out with our picks from SS/2018’s interiors trends from THE One, The Odd Piece and West Elm, supported by MrGFoster and Esra Lemmens. Catch up with the latest in everything Bazaar, airing on the interactive display, or flick through our latest issue for some last-minute inspiration. Post an Instagram snap of yourself enjoying the new lounge with the hashtag #BazaarxDubaiMall for a chance to have a space in your home transformed by one of the Harper’s Bazaar interior design specialists.
