I was lucky enough to go and preview the new expansion in the Mall of the Emirates. For the last 18 months a 3000 strong team worked tirelessly to create an extension of 36,000 square metres. The expansion houses over 20 Fashion outlets, 12 new restaurants and the new Vox Cinema.
The extension has some of my favourite shops in it such as All Saints and Paperchase, it was a great experience having a floor of the mall all to ourselves. We walked around the shops and refuelled at Yo Sushi! with some yummy California rolls, dragon rolls and various other dishes.
There was a press conference and a tour of the new biggest cinema complex in the Middle East. The Vox houses 24 screens including the only IMAX with a Laser Screen in the region and the largest 4DX auditorium. There is also the Theatre by Rhodes experience where you can combine fine foods with film. The tour culminated with Gary Rhodes himself cooking us lunch! It was a fantastic way to experience the malls newest addition.
