You don’t require a membership at this clubhouse. How cool is that?
Words by Ayush Narayanan
Footsore shoppers have somewhere special to hang out. Mall of the Emirates has opened a clubhouse where you can take a break from your retail therapy.
There’s a games room for adults with an indoor mini golf course, billiards, and foosball table. It’s completely free to use and you don’t need to book (though you might have to wait your turn),
You will need to pay for food and drinks from the various healthy eats brands that are popping up in the Clubhouse. There’s Acai Shack, Poke and Co., Daily Prep Co., Pastel Cakes, The Salad Jar and more, plus customisable 3D printed pancakes. On weekdays there’s 25 per cent off breakfast between 10am-midday too.
Smaller shoppers will love the Little Clubhouse, where they can play when parents spend AED 150 across any of Mall of the Emirate’s 700 shops and experiences (combined purchases are acceptable too!). Kids aged three to 16 can try pasta art, pot painting, and cupcake decorating, before selling their creations at a mini-market.
Whether you need to chill out after maxing your cards or are looking to bond with your brood over a game of billiards, the Mall of the Emirates Clubhouse is open until the end of March. Watch out for roaming musicians proving a pop-up soundtrack that you might want to dance to.
Near Ski Dubai, Mall of the Emirates, Al Barsha. Both of the Club Houses are open 10am-10pm till 31st March. www.malloftheemirates.com
