Is Woodlands Mall in your hood or do you visit them often? If so, you’ve surely noticed the construction workers in their blue trousers and hard hats. It’s not for nothing, we can assure you!
The excitement is slowly but surely building up towards the end of April when the Restaurant Piazza will officially be launched. Being around since 2004, Woodlands has recently started the process of revamping its restaurant and piazza area which will be more family friendly – an area where parents can enjoy a cup of coffee without kids nagging about when they can go home. In fact, your little ones might just be the ones who want to stay longer once they’ve seen what Woodlands has in store for them.
The mall claims to be designed for convenience and it seems that the new restaurant piazza will certainly attest to that. A whole new kiddies’ play area is being built, with tunnels, slides and climbs that will keep’em busy for hours. The mall has also been greening up a bit, bringing in five trees that create a very inviting, welcoming atmosphere. The kiddies’ play area is surrounded by top restaurant franchises, including Mugg & Bean, Wok ’n Roll, Woolworths Café, Ocean Basket, O’Galito, Heat Grill Room and Cappuccinos and the popular Cups & Cones are conveniently located for kids to grab a scoop. Cups & Cones will also give kids the opportunity to decorate their own ice-cream during the launch of the restaurant piazza at the end of the month. Some of the mall’s restaurants even seized the opportunity to do some revamping too. O’Galito, Heat Grill Room and Cappuccinos are all changing things up a bit and we are very excited to see how they’ve incorporated the latest restaurant trends in their spaces. There are also two new, exciting restaurants coming in: Casa Bella with their Italian-inspired pizzas, pasta and grills and Mooi, with their South African tapas. The mall’s bathrooms are also undergoing a complete facelift.
In addition to ice-creams and slides, Nu Metro has also come to the party, offering all their movies at half-price on launch weekend, 26 to 28 April 2019. The release of the long-anticipated movie, Avengers: Endgame, is also on this same weekend, so you’ll have to jump for your tickets! To qualify for half-price tickets, you’ll have to visit Nu Metro Woodlands and join Nu Metro’s scene club. On the weekend of the launch, Ocean Basket will also be hosting a Greek evening where you’ll be able to break some plates, while other restaurants will also host some great activations. One thing is for sure: It’s going to be a fun-filled end to April.
Visit the site of the play area and piazza when you are at Woodlands. There are two viewing points with steps for kids, where they will be able to envision the excitement.
