A Temperley Guide to Dubai


Explore our guide to Dubai – home to our third standalone store – featuring everything from the best local restaurants and bars, to luxurious spa breaks and adventures in the desert.

Temperley London opened its third active standalone store in the Dubai Mall in 2020. It features a VIP lounge and spans across approximately 1500 square feet.

The design of the space reflects Alice's vision for the brand through its modern aesthetic and use of feminine nuances. Light, clean, expansive — the decorative yet dramatic space, designed in collaboration with architect and interior expert Blainey North, is the perfect backdrop for our creations.

During the last few years we have collected together our favourite spots to revel, relax, dine and drink in this magical city. Discover Dubai the Temperley London way.
