The very latest in elegant design, fashion and cuisine is now available at a new Harper’s BAZAAR Café in CITY WALK - Dubai.


The café, which has been launched by Dubai’s Marka PJSC, the first public stock retail operator in the UAE, and Hearst Magazines International, is sure to elevate CITY WALK’s status as a first-class entertainment, dining and luxury hub. The opening of Harper’s BAZAAR Café at this premium location will broaden the reach of the popular concept in Dubai, which has already made the first Harper’s BAZAAR Café in the Dubai Design District (d3) a popular destination.

With a focus on art, design and fashion, the café beautifully expresses the Harper’s BAZAAR brand, bringing the pages of the magazine to life through its refined blend of style, culture and cuisine. The café offers an eclectic selection of contemporary European dishes, and features a menu section dedicated to healthy dining.

Hesham Almekkawi, managing director of Marka Hospitality, said: “Dubai’s second location for Harper’s BAZAAR Café follows a successful opening earlier this year. We are proud to open this new café at CITY WALK, which forms a key part of our UAE expansion plans for this sophisticated lifestyle brand. This new location complements the Harper’s BAZAAR Café brand perfectly, and we are confident that the concept will continue to resonate with residents and visitors to Dubai.”

“The café is a truly immersive experience, reflecting BAZAAR’s timeless chic on every level, from the décor, to the menu, to the polished presentation,” Adam Cooper, Hearst Magazines International publisher and global licensing director, said. “Marka is an excellent partner, with an understanding and appreciation of the BAZAAR brand. We are looking forward to the CITY WALK location and further expansion in the UAE.”

Harper’s BAZAAR Café will be a notable feature in CITY WALK, perfectly located between Downtown Dubai and Jumeirah. The café will have a capacity that extends to 46 interior seats, with 52 more available on the outdoor terrace, a tranquil space that draws inspiration from the secret gardens and retreats of renowned fashion houses, and provides the perfect environment for morning coffee and pastries, and lunch bites.
