Charging station

You are in the mall, window shopping, having a bite to eat or running important errands, when you suddenly realize you phone is dead. Reach inside your bag for the charger, but remember you have left it at home. What to do?
 
Well, that should no longer be a problem if you are in Marina Mall Abu Dhabi! Take a look at this charging station, located on the second floor, across from Timberland:



Clever, huh? Wish I had thought of that…

The Galleria shopping complex to open in Abu Dhabi August 2013

As of August, the shopping experience in Abu Dhabi will be taken to a whole new level with the grand opening of The Galleria at Sowwah Square, located at Al Maryah Island.
 
The capital will finally have a well-deserved and highly-anticipated grand shopping and dining destination: 33,000 square meters, with a stunning 5.4km waterfront promenade, 4,000 car spaces, close to 150 stores and 25 dining options.
 
Retail will be a mix of mid-market and high-end international luxury retail. This means you can basically find a little bit of everything at The Galleria – including important names such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Gucci, Prada, Alexander McQueen, Aspinal of London, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Christian Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, Berluti, Celine, Mulberry, Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith, Moschino and Tory Burch among others.
 
Not to mention the great food and beverage alternatives! Besides the two courts of cafés and fast-food dining, visitors will be able to enjoy internationally recognized signature restaurants – 12 of which are said to be alcohol-licensed! This is certainly a first, since it is extremely rare to find a venue selling alcoholic beverages outside hotels in the UAE.
