Shops in the Avenue at Etihad Towers

A list of the shops in the Avenue at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi and what's coming soon.

Level 1

Canali - The renowned Italian outfitters' brand of tailored cool is unmatched in the realm of men's formalwear. We love their fine cashmere.

Manolo Blahnik - Carrying the revered Spanish designer's latest shoe creations, this Blahnik outpost is so chic it hurts.

Bally - The simple decor serves as the perfect showcase for an impeccably curated selection that bridges the gap between affordable and "come again?" price tags.

Herve Leger - A solid stop for fans of the French fashion house, known for pioneering the body-con look.

Fauchon Le Café - Break time. Contemporary French cuisine takes the spotlight at this massive space, its first in Abu Dhabi. Aside from a sit-down cafe, there's a delicatessen for fresh sweet and savoury treats to take home.

Level 2

Burberry - Racks upon racks of impeccably tailored duds dominate the space, which has its own menswear section.

Cartier - The renowned French jeweller and watchmaker arrives in the capital in style. With four VIP lounges, plus its own bridal section, this flagship store is one of those beautiful locations you never want to leave.

Versace - Only Gianni could create a store like this - a ritzy space with industrial edge - where you can cop a head-to-toe look in one go.

Salvatore Ferragamo - Hosting the men's, women's, accessories and perfume collections by the Florence-based fashion house, it's a great addition to the city's retail landscape.

Hermès - We can confidently call it the best designed store in the city. Against classy-kitsch interiors, covetable curiosities sit alongside a mishmash of limited edition items.

Piaget - Whether you're looking for a present for pop or a piece to pass on to your kid, they've got you covered. It's the first Piaget store in the UAE, run by staff trained at the Swiss luxury watchmaker's base.

Chloé - The go-to spot to snatch up free-spirited takes on refined classics. The biggest draw is the well-edited selection - you'll always find something totally fresh.

Van Cleef & Arpels - The Parisian jeweller sells the most expensive wares this side of town - including a Dh1.6m trio of necklace, ring and earrings from its Socrate Collection - but its hospitable hosts make the shopping experience un-intimidating. The VIP room is as big as the main store.

A Lange & Sohne - Forget its ho-hum exterior - it just makes the surprises inside all the less expected: a mix of stunning heritage and modern timepieces from the German watchmaker.
