DUBAI, UAE – Dubai Festival City Mall introduced a new winter destination, Vibes by the Bay, on Oct. 05. 

The place offers a wide variety of street food trucks, a diverse new marketplace and an aquatic circus experience. 

To enhance visitors’ experience, people are welcome to join Hot Spot by the Bay, which is a multi-cultural event designed by artists and home-grown brands from the region that displays Emirati success in their entrepreneurship journey.

“The opening of Vibes by the Bay allowed our coffeeshop to get noticed and allowed us to take part of a magical experience during a magical time,” said Hunter Moxcir, a barista at 57 coffeeshop.

In adition, the inclusion of Fontana Circus, the first travelling water circus in the Middle East, adds to the live entertainment the destination offers alongside fountain and light shows. 

First time visitor, Faten Naguib, said she enjoyed the atmosphere the destination offers and liked that the place caters to visitors of all ages and is equipped with a designated play area for children.

“The views and the experience as a whole are something memorable and would definitely want to make you come back for […] multiple times,” said Naguib.

The pop-up does not require an entry fee and will run until May 2023.

Neon lights beam the words, “Vibes by the Bay,” on the pavement.
