There’s even more space at The Galleria Al Maryah Island and already this community hub is rolling out a series of family fun activities.
Clearly, there are now far more shopportunities to bag that item you’ve always wanted.
Not only that, there’s also art, culture and…wait for it…a mall full of prize-winning activities to enjoy for the entire family.
It all kicks off 5th September with a treasure hunt that’ll spark your inner Indiana Jones. It’s a great way to discover the mall’s 250 new shops and bag some prizes along the way.
There are 15 adventures along the treasure trail. Collect at least 10 stamps for each adventure discovered and you’ll be taking home a limited edition The Galleria x Dia’a Allam gift bag.
You’ll be working up an appetite but you definitely won’t be going hungry. The extension’s 70 new casual dining venues will get you back on track. Phew!
Need more time to chill? The mall’s new urban rooftop parks should do the trick.
There’s even a chance to win VIP tickets to The Galleria Al Maryah Island street party on 15th November.
On the treasure hunt trail you’ll discover some of the mall’s latest additions including Central Kitchens, Decathlon, Xtreme Zone, Blaze Pizza, Bouchon Bakery, rooftop parks, the 21-screen Vox Cinema and the soon-to-open Kinokuniya bookstore.
“We were thinking what the community wanted in a mall. So we did a lot of research and it became clear very quickly that they wanted fantastic entertainment across all categories for all ages,” says Daniel Parry, managing director of Gulf Related, the developer behind the mall.
“We are known in Abu Dhabi for Zuma, La Petite Maison, and so on, but that’s a certain market.
“What about the everyday food? What about the family-friendly restaurants that you want to take the kids to during the weekend?
“So we went around the world and we looked at who’s the best of the best and we sort them, so that’s why today we have here now The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang’s and [a] whole lot of others – it’s all here.”
We can’t wait to join in the family fun!
