Dubai Airport - What's open?

Flight leaving Dubai (DXB) at 01:00. Tour ends at 16:00 just prior to departure. Just wondering if many of the duty-free shopping and restaurants will be open late in the evening before we fly out.

Here is what Emirates, the dominant airline, says about duty-free shopping in its home airport. Note that you can buy duty-free on arrival as well as departure. I was startled by how much liquor was on sale in what is supposedly a mostly-dry emirate.

"Dubai Duty Free is open 24 hours for arrivals and departures. And don't forget that Duty Free items are also available onboard all Emirates flights. For more information on Dubai Duty Free, you can visit their website at
