Hi
I am moving to Dubai soon and am looking at following areas:
Downtown
DIFC
City Walk

They all meet my travel requirements. What I am seeking is practical advice on these areas? For example I have seen a few apartments in Downtown that are in the middle of construction zones so I have ruled those out.

Just to maybe highlight some key requirements are access to facilities like grocery shopping etc. Pubs are a plus!

Any insights will be helpful.

Thanks.

Downtown has the most amenities and bars in walking distance. Apartments in DIFC and City Walk may be nicer though.

Where will you be working? I work in DIFC and got an apartment here. More expensive than Downtown and a little quieter in terms of bars etc but the traffic getting out of DIFC at rush hour is crazy, I am very very happy to have a short walk home.

Marble Walk seems to be coming along very fast as well which should bring more shops, bars etc.

It can be a bit sterile around here for sure but I'm happy with my choice having had a similar dilemma to you in terms of location
