About DIFC

Dubai International Financial Center is the definition of prestige!

DIFC is a vibrant district, filled with cutting-edge urban architecture, exclusive apartments, art galleries representing the work of established and emerging artists from around the world, and some of Dubai's best places to dine.

The financial center is also home to some of the city's most sophisticated five-star hotels, with elegant residential towers all connected by public art-dotted walkways and a few high-end boutiques.

It is a fully developed community consisting of 6 residential buildings and more than 20 commercial buildings. All of the main DIFC buildings are connected to a 'backbone' called Gate Avenue which is home to a wide variety of restaurants and shops.

The concept was inspired by London's Canary Wharf and really gives the feeling of being in London, New York or Singapore. The roof of the “Spine” is a beautiful park with cafeterias and lounges.

Commercial properties in the area are home to some of the world's most renowned banks and financial institutions, including the Private Office of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum located in the Emirates Towers.


DIFC's location is conveniently close to the main attractions and areas of the city; just 9 minutes drive from Downtown, there are two metro stations in the area: Emirates Towers and Financial Center, as well as easy taxi accessibility.


You can enjoy a luxurious dinner in one of the award-winning restaurants, or visit during Art Nights at Gate Village, which transforms the district with live music and gallery shows, giving visitors the opportunity to engage in creative activities.

Once you're done with five-star arts and entertainment for the day, you can discover why DIFC has recently earned its well-deserved reputation as a foodie's paradise. There is always entertainment in the evenings thanks to award-winning restaurants such as La Petite Maison, Zuma and Indochine.


The DIFC area offers some of the best local and international nurseries and schools, and is therefore a suitable location for families with children.
