From 10 October – 9 November, The Galleria Al Maryah Island is hosting its ‘Step into Style’ campaign which celebrates the best of the Autumn/Winter lifestyle season, whether you’re looking to eat, play, shop or indulge. Here are our top picks as to why you need to be at The Galleria this Autumn/Winter.
Shop for A/W fashion at stores you can’t find anywhere else
‘Step into style’ from head to toe at first-to-Abu Dhabi stores, creating a unique statement that’s your own. Shop over 50 exclusive brands from the high street to luxury, including the world’s first standalone Kendall + Kylie boutique and other first-to-Abu Dhabi high street brands such as American Rag Cie, Missguided and Abercrombie & Fitch. Be amongst the first to shop the ready-to-wear collections from Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga, or indulge in these luxury boutiques such as the flagship Chanel, or Burberry and Fendi – found only at The Galleria. Your high street faves are also all here, including H&M, Zara, Massimo Dutti and Mango, so your Autumn/Winter looks are sorted.
Take home an exclusive gift, personalised just for you*
Whether you shop for that woollen throw at Pottery Barn or the trench coat at Debenhams you will be rewarded with a luxurious treat to take home with any AED 500 spend at The Galleria during the ‘Step into Style’ campaign. Visit the stand in the North, Ground Floor near Debenhams and choose your gift – a silk mask, a scented candle, a leather bag tag, or a leather bracelet, and have it customised for you on the spot by skilled craftsmen.
Rediscover the great outdoors
Cooler temperatures means that you can rediscover your favourite outdoor activities. The Galleria’s three urban rooftop parks: Sky Park, Family Park and Sports Park are a welcome oasis in the city, inviting photo enthusiasts to snap what is arguably one of the best sunset vantage points in capital. For early risers, take a fresh sunrise stroll on the mall’s outdoor promenade, which wraps around Al Maryah Island. Or, for the more adventurous, visit Abu Dhabi’s only Decathlon store where you can stock up essentials for a weekend camping in the desert, kayaking in the canals or cycling on the Corniche.
Taste the flavours of fall at over 20 cafés
While the weather is cooler, you can still feel fuzzy on the inside with a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate from one of The Galleria’s 20+ coffee outlets or cafés. Pick up the signature Salted Caramel Latte from Starbucks, create your own distinct blend at luxury café Maison Samira Maatouk, get the signature Flat White at a cosy corner in Caffe Nero or watch the world go by at Godiva Chocolate Café or Bouchon Bakery. There really is a blend and place for every taste.
Watch some of the year’s biggest hits in Abu Dhabi’s only IMAX theatre
Autumn/Winter is also the best time to catch some of the year’s best Hollywood blockbusters. Get fully immersed in family flicks like Disney’s Mulan, Bayala: A Magical Adventure or Combat Wombat, or switch gears into action packed films like Jackie Chan’s Vanguard and Honest Thief with Liam
Neeson. With 21 screens it is the largest cinema in Abu Dhabi and offers the city’s only IMAX experience.
Enjoy al fresco dining with the city’s best waterside views
Boasting perhaps the best alfresco dining scene in the capital, The Galleria has an unrivalled selection of award-winning restaurants along its waterfront promenade. Try delicacies from international restaurants like Zuma, LPM Restaurant & Bar, Nusr-Et, COYA and 99 Sushi Bar while enjoying the
amazing weather. Or, a quick bite, the spacious outdoor terraces at the North or South food courts offer great views across the water and casual bites at Royal Orchid, Joga, Biryani Pot, Taqado and more.
Warm up the home with the colours and smells of Autumn/Winter
Autumn/Winter is also the perfect time to make your place a little cosier and there’s no better place than The Galleria which houses the widest collection of homeware stores in Abu Dhabi. Add a splash of “daydream” to the living room from Jotun Paints’ new 2020 collection, and combine soft, woollen fabrics with rich wood at Pottery Barn or West Elm for an earthy, seasonal feel. Also check out 2XL Furniture & Décor, Ashley Homeware, Sophia Home and United Furniture to dress up the home from bedding to tableware in warm fall colours from burnt oranges to deep crimsons. The Galleria offers the widest collection of homeware stores in Abu Dhabi. Don’t forget to scent up the home with cinnamon pumpkin spice or frosted cranberry scented candles at Bath & Body Works, or Jo Malone’s home candle collection with hints of wild sage, pomegranate or dark amber.
Get the Ultimate Al Maryah Island Lifestyle Experience
