The trendy structures, which are springing up all over the country, were previously marketed as a hub for the younger crowd.

But now they offer world class all-around entertainment for the entire family.With the recent opening of the mammoth Dubai Mall, other shopping malls have gone on an overdrive to attract greater footfalls.

Beginning today, Khaleej Times will feature a weekly column that would highlight all that is happening — from sales promotions to entertainment — at the malls across the country.

Pop sensation Kylie Minogue’s concert at the Dubai Festival Center tops the list of attractions this weekend, with mystical magic show by ‘Mist’ at the Mall of the Emirates coming in second. Deira City Center will be launching the winter/autumn collection as the biggest bag of goodies for shopaholics.
