When you fancy a spot of shopping and catching up with friends in a charming, modern setting, tell any taxi driver to take you to the “Marks & Spencer mall”, otherwise known as the Fotouh Al Khair Centre. It is the perfect venue to satisfy all your retail therapy urges, especially when you stay at a luxury Abu Dhabi city hotel such as the elegant Millennium Hotel Abu Dhabi. Its central location makes it one of the best Abu Dhabi hotels on offer here. The “Marks and Spenser” mall does indeed boast this iconic British department store, amidst a host of other outlets that offer a great range of shopping options. You’ll find such mid-range luxury brands as Nine West, Adams, Monsoon, and Hush Puppies, to name a few quality apparel outlets. If you’re in the mood to pick up a few accessories and ornaments for the house, check out the offerings of the Falcon Gallery, which features an elegant array of flower arrangement equipment, scented candles, and cute ornaments designed to transform a house into a home. If you are craving a bite and a beverage, the Mirabel café is a great place to exchange conversation with friends and family, or simply indulge in a bit of reading whilst you sip a delicious latte and bite into a warm scone.
