With exceptional footfall and retailer performance, Abu Dhabi’s newest lifestyle destination has delivered on its promise to the community.
The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s expansion has become a hit with the Abu Dhabi community since it opened on 4 September 2019. In just the first four days, more than 400,000 people have walked through the doors of The Galleria. The exceptionally positive response has led to retailers requesting additional space to expand their product offering along with numerous enquiries from others who want to be part of this success. The Galleria was created with the people of Abu Dhabi in mind. It is a destination that brings together the best entertainment, retail and dining all under one roof. Guests of The Galleria have been able to explore first to Abu Dhabi brands such as Missguided, relish unique dining options such as Bouchon Bakery and Blaze Pizza, and discover exciting family entertainment including a 21-screen VOX Cinema with IMAX.
