January sales at The Galleria in Abu Dhabi
It is sale time at this swish Abu Dhabi mall. Hurrah! Discuss this article
For most of us, shopping in Burberry, Fendi, Prada or Ralph Lauren is just a pipe dream. Our main port of call is the (proverbial) high street, where more affordable stores reside, such as H&M and Promod (not that there’s anything wrong with that). This month, however, The Galleria is making high-end that bit more accessible with a mall-wide sale, offering between 30 and 50 percent off on luxury goods.
While the month of January is often a time for scrimping and saving, it also happens to be a time of mind-blowing bargains (go figure). From coveted watches to striking fashion accessories and gorgeous children’s clothes to trendy over-sized sunglasses – you can find all that and plenty more in The Galleria, in just under 100 stores from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Cartier and Dior.
The mall itself offers a relaxed shopping experience on Al Maryah Island, with services such as free wi-fi, valet parking and a children’s play area (so you can drop off the sprogs while you focus on spending).
And, once you’ve finished your spree, and worked up an appetite, there are numerous dining options to choose from. Not all of them are as high-end as their fashion counterparts, either. Next to fine-dining spots like the award-winning Asian hotspot Dai Pai Dong or Italian newbie Roberto’s, you’ll find casual restaurants like Biryani Pot and – one of Time Out’s favourites – Nolu’s. If you’re dieting, then you could hit Shoots The Green Bar or Café Bateel. Or, if calories aren’t a concern, you’ve always got Burger Fuel or Magnolia Bakery (that’ll keep the kids happy at least!).
