Wafi City, with its Egyptian-influenced architecture, is a massive, elegant, and luxurious shopping, leisure, and entertainment complex flanked by giant sphinxes and home to arguably the best variety of upmarket shops in town.
At Wafi City, you’ll find everything from the tastiest of foodstuffs at the legendary Wafi Gourmet, to dramatic home furnishings at Petals, to accessories and gifts galore. Wafi City is also home to big-name designer outlets, including Betty Barclay, Caresse, Chanel, Giordano, Escada, Roccobarroco, Versace, and more.
Adding to Wafi City’s allure is the new subterranean and architecturally magnificent souk, Khan Murjan, which specializes in traditional arts and crafts from the Arab world. And if you’re in need of an energy boost, across the way in Pyramids, you’ll find Cleopatra’s spa and a cluster of good eateries. One, the Rooftop Gardens, even features special themed movie and music nights.
