The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s covetable new expansion opened today with a festive event, which brought together tastemakers, influencers and the team behind the brand for a delightful ribbon-cutting ceremony. Step inside and you would be immediately enraptured by a dome-shaped archway, which is imbued with Arabic calligraphy by local arist Dia’a Allam, which translates to terms such as ‘Family’ and ‘Your city, your mall’.

Daniel Parry, Managing Director of Gulf Related, said in a release, “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.” The space is dressed in 70 dining venues, including Bouchon Bakery, Blaze Pizza, and family-favorites, including The Cheesecake Factory and PF Chang’s. Also to satiate your appetite for leisure are urban rooftop parks and t he flagship 21-screen VOX Cinema with IMAX. “We’re excited to welcome the community to eat, play, shop and indulge at The Galleria for generations to come,” he added.

The extension is awash in art installations, created exclusively for The Galleria by local and international artists the likes of Sheikh Firdous, Julia Ibbini and Ahmed Al Zarooni, to pay homage to the culture and heritage of the UAE capital. Now’s your chance to go and have the full The Galleria experience.
