When word got out that an awesome new leisure destination is opening up in Kuwait, we were giddily counting down the days until its official opening. We were promised fun for the entire family and more – and what we got in return was perfection. “Fun for all” was an understatement when we made our way to The Promenade. Packed with everything anyone might need (including a trampoline paradise called Trampo), we had decided then and there that this would be our go-to escape for all our needs – including the gym. Located right off the 3rd Ring Road in Hawalli, The Promenade is the ultimate destination for all. With an array of shops – both locally and internationally renowned – The Promenade will never leave you wanting. Make sure you’re there on the 1st and 2nd of October for their Grand Launch Celebrations!
There’s nothing the good people behind The Promenade haven’t thought of! A large Sultan Center outlet is, conveniently enough, located on the ground floor for easy access to all your grocery needs. Fully stocked with an array of products from the US and UK, the Sultan Center is the perfect one-stop-shop! This way, all you need to do is drop the kids off at one of the state-of-the-art children’s activity areas while you do the shopping! Keeping the local families in mind, The Promenade is close to several areas and can be easily reached via the 3rd Ring Road, making it accessible to the nearby residents in the Al-Asimah district as well as Salmiya. Equipped with fun activities – such as PLAY; an awesome arcade where kids can spend hours and be completely entertained – Trampo; awesome trampolines where kids can practice their back flips and bouncing tricks, and Clip’n’Climb; the ultimate indoor climbing walls and structures – your kids will always be excited for a trip to The Promenade. As far as dining is concerned, The Promenade is delivering on the promise of supporting local business, where many local favorites like Nagwa, Life with Cacao, Brother’s Burgers, as well as Café Bazza, and many more have opened, or will be opening their doors soon!
Fun for the entire family, they also have Promenade Ice – Kuwait’s only in-door, and in-mall, ice rink! More than just an ice rink, Promenade Ice offers specialized courses – and public skating sessions – with professional coaches to help students of all ages master the art of effortless gliding. What’s more is that they also teach them the required skills and techniques to become figure skaters and ice-hockey skaters! Provided with skates, helmets, and optional fun-looking skating aids, Promenade Ice’s ultimate goal is safety. The Promenade is also an excellent place for children’s birthday parties and school trips – the kids can have a blast while learning new things in the specialized activity areas. It’s an incredible fun and safe entertainment area where children of all ages can burn off some of their energy while you hit the shops in peace.
A sustainable mall with a cause, the Al Othman Charity Fund overseas the operation as a whole – making The Promenade an entirely unique concept. Spectacular panoramic views of Kuwait City and the coast can be enjoyed from any of the mall’s floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a light and airy atmosphere. The perfect place to head to straight from school – the top floor is fully equipped for the ladies! With a spa, nail salon, and ladies gym – moms get the chance to unwind and squeeze in a workout while their children enjoy one of the activities in their designated areas. For those just wanting to hit the walking path, go no further! The top floor is fitted with a cushy track for your ultimate comfort in the cool AC.
Giving back to the community, the good people behind The Promenade have also created the Promenade Cultural Centre, PCC, which will provide a unique space for local artists and collectives to promote their work. With an exciting jam-packed calendar coming up, the PCC is the space to watch! While the mall is currently open for business, and your enjoyment, don’t forget to head on over for their Grand Launch Celebrations on the 1st and 2nd of October! That fist weekend in October will be packed with shopping promotions, gifts, live performances and shows for the whole family to enjoy! Celebrating this incredible new leisure destination in the heart of the Capital, The Promenade has set out to take back Hawalli and give it back to the people. Incredible retail outlets, restaurants and cafés, as well as amazing specialized spaces – The Promenade promises a fun filled time for the whole family.
