Charms Of Al Seef : Fun And Fine Dining In Dubai


If you haven’t been to Al Seef yet, then now is the time to go. There, you will see a different part of Dubai where old-world charm meets modern delights. This lifestyle space is where you can enjoy a myriad of experiences. Fine dining in Dubai and tourist attractions and shopping escapades can all be had in this thriving district by the world-famous Dubai Creek.


Open Doors to Al Seef 

Once a vibrant doorway to what was considered the Gulf’s most successful pearl diving port, Al Seef still embodies Dubai Creek’s legendary charisma. What once teemed with fisherfolk and merchants is now a multicultural hub where proud traditions and futuristic endeavors meld to create a beautiful present.

Opened to the public in 2017, the 1.8-km stretch of Dubai Creek’s stately shoreline is enveloped by this 2.5 million-square-foot development. Halved in two sections – a charming heritage area brimming with old architectural wonders and a contemporary lifestyle space, Al Seef is one of the choice destinations for Dubai residents and tourists alike.

In addition to Guangzhou and Shenzhen locations, Doors Freestyle Grill is proud to open its doors in this lively section in the Emirates. The exquisite marriage of the old and the new is one reason you can find the best restaurant in Al Seef. However, there is more to this bustling spot than our curated menu of succulent seafood and mouth-watering steaks. Al Seef is the latest place to be when in Dubai, and here are some of the reasons why:


Charming Culture

With the Dubai Creek playing a central role in the Emirates’ trading history, it is no wonder that it still hums with the bustling energy of yesteryears. This verve and vigor are still seen and felt as the property developers wanted to retain this district’s effervescent vibe by the Creek.

If you want to get a glimpse of Al Seef’s cultural past, the best way to do so is by embarking on a cultural walking tour. It is also located just a stone’s throw away from the pedestrian-friendly Al Fahidi historical neighborhood of Bur Dubai, the Al Bastakiya area, and the Dubai Museum. 

Locals and guests alike can meander through its fascinating sikkas or alleyways, getting that feel of Dubai’s distant past. Sandstone buildings and wind towers have stood the test of time, serving as silent witnesses to numerous sunrises and sunsets.

Fabulous Shopping

While walking around its charming backstreets, you’ll come across an open-air floating market and creekside pontoons where you can find Emirati art, regional crafts, and textiles. Al Seef is also adjacent to the Bur Dubai Souk, so if you’re a shopping enthusiast, there’s almost everything under the sun there — from affordable souvenir items to one-of-a-kind garments and exotic fabrics.

Shopaholics can also indulge in Al Seef’s department store and specialty shops that sell fashionable items, health and beauty products and services, eyewear, watches, and more. Trendy handbags and customized jewelry are available, along with luxurious Arabian fragrances, ouds, and perfume oils. Men who would like to have their own kandora – a garment favored by Emiratis – can also have it tailor-made to their exact specifications at Al Seef.
