What’s more, The Galleria will see a massive new expansion on 4 September 2019, which will welcome a whopping 270 new brands. These include the likes of Zara, H&M, Monki and Debenhams, as well as family favourite eateries, such as The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang’s and Paul Café. There will also be an exciting first-in-the-region culinary concept called Central Kitchens, designed by famed architect David Rockwell and a flagship Xtreme Zone, plus a 21-screen VOX cinema with IMAX and 4D technology, which will be one of the largest cinemas in the region, and a sport and adventure-themed park for younger children.
To celebrate the expansion, The Galleria has launched a community-led campaign called ‘Our City Your Mall’, to bring the many offerings coming to Abu Dhabi’s ultimate lifestyle destination to life, illustrating how the entire community will be able to ‘Eat, Play, Shop and Indulge’ at its 400 outlets.
“The campaign features four main pillars; Eat, Play, Shop and Indulge, that our guests will experience – each catering to everyone from the young, to the young at heart,” explains Daniel Parry, managing director of Gulf Related. “The expansion will be a meeting place for the community to create lasting memories with friends, family and loved ones for generations to come.”
