Dubai Marina is known for being a hip and glitzy neighbourhood, attracting young professionals. Nationalities are very mixed, but tend toward European.
The upscale neighbourhood is mainly popular with professionals who work in Dubai Media City and Jebel Ali Free Zone or JLT because of its proximity to their workplace. Those that have chosen to work in Abu Dhabi but live in Dubai often prefer to reside in the Marina, since it allows for a manageable commute.
Dubai Marina is a playground for social butterflies who love living life to the fullest. Marina residents love the water views from the buildings’ balconies, whether of the marina itself or of the open sea.
Check out Dubai Marina Mall or the new XLine and Skydive Dubai for the adrenaline junkies. Also, don’t miss having breakfast at Bouchon - their French baguettes are to die for. There is Ammos for Greek food lovers and Ladurée for some tea and macaroons. For a fine dining night, check out Pier 7 or restaurants at the Grosvenor House.
Residents are appreciative of grocery stores throughout the area. They also love that many spots within the Marina have easy access to the Dubai Metro. For residents that are further away from the Metro, the Dubai Tram serves to get them around the Marina and JBR.
The Marina Walk has a plethora of restaurants offering many types of cuisines. Pharmacies are open 24 hours a day and delivery service is quick in the Marina.
