The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s expansion has officially launched, offering visitors a new and very impressive lifestyle destination that is filled to the brim with entertainment and leisure facilities.
The expansion builds on the success of The Galleria’s Luxury Collection, which witnessed year-over-year sales growth since opening in 2013.
Visitors can now make the most of 70 dining venues, plenty of entertainment and over 250 international shops, all under one roof. The expansion is over 80 per cent leased, with nearly all stores expected to open by the end of 2019.
New dining options at The Galleria Al Maryah Island include Bouchon Bakery, Blaze Pizza, P.F. Chang’s and The Cheesecake Factory. The Galleria now also feaures Central Kitchens, an innovative dining concept designed by acclaimed architect David Rockwell and Rockwell Group.
For families, landscaped urban rooftop parks and world-class entertainment destinations have been launched for people of all ages, while The Galleria’s flagship 21-screen VOX Cinema with IMAX awaits guests. Visitors can also be entertained in the Xtreme Zone, an Abu Dhabi flagship location.
A jam-packed calendar of events and activities are sure to keep the whole family entertained every weekend from now until The Galleria’s first annual Street Party in November. From September 5, the Abu Dhabi community can partake in a special passport-themed treasure hunt. Participants who complete the treasure hunt adventures can claim an exclusive limited-edition ‘The Galleria x Dia’a Allam’ gift bag. Other events over the next few weeks include The Galleria’s ‘100 Weekend’, during which visitors will be able to win amazing gifts.
In light of the launch, a VIP ribbon cutting ceremony was held. During the event, managing director, Gulf Related (The Galleria’s developer), Daniel Parry declared: “Today we opened our doors to The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s expansion and launched a new era of shopping, dining and entertainment for the capital. This incredible lifestyle destination was developed for the people of Abu Dhabi and caters to every member of the community with a unique offering that includes rooftop parks, entertainment for all ages and the city’s best shopping and dining experience.
“We’re excited to welcome the community to eat, play, shop and indulge at The Galleria for generations to come,” Parry concluded.
