You’re looking for a day well spent, and have the time to take in all The Galleria has to offer.

Experiences to enjoy

  • Give your work from home days a different twist by working from The Galleria and sip coffee, juices or mocktails in a quiet corner or along the waterfront promenade. Visit Sakura Café inside Kinokuniya. With access to the Sky Park, a literal library’s worth of books and magazines, and Japanese flavours it’s a haven from the hustle.
  • Coffee Hat is a hidden gem on Level 2 with distinct brews, the ‘secret’ Starbucks tucked away in Debenhams is a great spot to relax with the laptop, or snap the perfect office pic overlooking the city and the water from Eat Greek, L’ETO, Bentley Kitchen and more.
  • Wind down after a long day in urban rooftop parks overlooking the city. Keep healthy and fit in Sports Park, take the little ones for play time in the Family Park, or relax in Sky Park. There are even Park Bites you can order from a range of eateries, so you can dine al fresco too.
  • Smart TVs are great, but does anything beat an immersive cinematic experience, with a large popcorn and the latest movie release, all in high-definition? VOX Cinemas is for the true movie lover. With the only laser IMAX experience in the city, fine dining options at Theatre, dedicated KIDS screens and 21 screens, it’s the biggest and best anywhere in the capital.
