Dublin Square | Oasis Of Calm & Beauty | Phoenix Marketcity Kurla Mumbai
Browsing through beautiful places that provide an oasis of calmness and peace even in midst of a megapolis like Mumbai is one of the little joys of life. Earlier, people would go sit by a lake or zoom through the forests, but hey this is an urban jungle and it is heartening to see the efforts taken by modern architects and planners to provide us with something refreshing within unexpected formats.
Now who would expect a sort of mini city within a shopping mall? The whole idea of a shopping mall started with providing a place to shop for various brands under one roof, maybe throw in some entertainment, games and food options and sit back. Today however, most (if not all) of our major shopping malls have turned into one stop for not only shopping but events, product launches, customer interaction, entertainment hubs, gourmet magnet, foodie haunts and a place to relax. I love the Dublin Square at Phoenix Marketcity Mall, Kurla, Mumbai because it simply transports me to some faraway European village right in the middle of Mumbai.
The color combination, the beautiful art deco architecture, the artifacts that give some brilliant home decor tips, the rustic ambiance, that feeling of having read about this kind of architecture and atmosphere in perhaps some Shakespearean play or Jane Austen novel, it is ethereal to say the least :) I was just browsing through the Bloom City Experience as well as Dino Island Experience at Phoenix Marketcity Kurla and realized that I had taken pictures of Dublin City later on when I had visited the mall during daytime too! So here you go, enjoy and don't forget to let me know what you think about them :)
