Abu Dhabi-based, The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s expansion is now open. The expansion builds on success of The Galleria’s Luxury Collection. The expansion is over 80% leased with nearly all stores expected to open by the end of the year.
Guests can dine at 70 new dining venues including Bouchon Bakery, Blaze Pizza, P.F. Chang’s and The Cheesecake Factory. The Galleria also introduces Central Kitchens, a unique dining concept designed by acclaimed architect David Rockwell and Rockwell Group.
Families can enjoy in the landscaped urban rooftop parks and at world-class entertainment destinations for all ages and catch the latest blockbusters at The Galleria’s flagship 21-screen VOX Cinemas with IMAX. Visitors will also be entertained in destinations such as Xtreme Zone.
Visitors can shop the best selection of over 250 international brands and first-to-Abu Dhabi stores such as Missguided and Decathlon.
Unique art installations, created exclusively for The Galleria by local and international artists, pay homage to the culture and heritage of Abu Dhabi. Decorating public spaces, artists including Sheikh Firdous, Julia Ibbini, Ahmed Al Zarooni and Soroshi Michelle highlight traditional and ancient arts such as Sadu Weaving and Nabati poetry. Installations also highlight Abu Dhabi’s natural landscape, the city’s present-day multiculturalism and its prosperous future.
Commenting on the opening of the expansion, Daniel Parry, managing director of Gulf Related said, “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.”
