Dubai // The inner suburbs //

Oud Metha

Across the Creek from Garhoud lies the slightly more upmarket district of Oud Metha, a rather formless area dotted with assorted malls, hotels and lowbrow leisure attractions. The district is centred on the area around the Mövenpick hotel, the old-fashioned Lamcy Plaza and the even more old-fashioned Al Nasr Leisureland amusement park, though there are also some surprisingly good restaurants here, as well as one of Dubai’s biggest clubs, Domeland by Chi.
