A 5,000 square meter family entertainment centre, Megapolis, is set to open in Medina Centrale at The Pearl-Qatar in March 2015 in what promises to be the biggest indoor entertainment centre in the region.
The centre will combine a multitude of entertainment venues that range from arcades and indoor attractions like golf, bowling, snooker, billiard and darts, to high tech 3D and 5D games, karaoke and an active sports zone. General Manager of Retail Leasing at The Pearl-Qatar, Mohamed Yoosaf, said:
We are delighted to see one of the most anticipated entertainment hubs in Doha and at The Pearl-Qatar come to completion. This reflects the investment stability the State of Qatar continues to enjoy and the growing interest from investors and developers in The Pearl-Qatar as a leading mixed-use development housing Doha’s fastest growing community. Megapolis is therefore a valuable addition to the family-oriented facilities that are planned for the Island and categorizes as the new generation of hybrid recreation centres that embody exquisite designs and infrastructure with high tech and service sophistication. Our strategic partnership with Palma Hospitality will further see two restaurants, La Casa 28 and Debs w Reman as well as the world-renowned coffee shop, Mokarabia, opening also in Medina Centrale later in 2015.’
The entertainment centre will be further marked by an enhanced food and beverage service and will feature five eateries – Saladworks, Earl of Sandwich, Cool de Sac, Camille’s Ice Cream and Mister Pizza.
Supporting its commitment to strong business partnerships, United Development Company (UDC), a leading Qatari Shareholding Company and master developer of The Pearl-Qatar, had signed a lease agreement in March 2014 with Palma Hospitality Group, covering a total area of 7,000 square meter, to launch a series of genuine food and beverage (F&B) concepts in addition to Megapolis. These concepts brought by Palma Hospitality Group are strategic to the building of an interesting and diversified retail mix which suits the budding spirit of Medina Centrale, dubbed as the The Pearl-Qatar’s town centre.
The Pearl-Qatar’s retail and hospitality expansion plans continue to unfold in Porto Arabia and Qanat Quartier, the Island’s other two main retail areas aside from Medina Centrale, with another big indoor sporting facility, ‘Gymito’, spanning an area of 2,000 square meters being in the pipeline among many other genuine concepts which will be announced in due time
