Qatar will soon have the “biggest indoor entertainment center in the region.” A 5,000sqm family entertainment center, Megapolis, is set to open in Medina Centrale at The Pearl-Qatar in March, it was announced recently.
The center 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.
Megapolis will also feature five eateries – Saladworks, Earl of Sandwich, Cool de Sac, Camille’s Ice Cream and Mister Pizza.
The United Development Company (UDC), a leading Qatari Shareholding Company and master developer of The Pearl-Qatar, had signed a lease agreement in March last year with Palma Hospitality Group, covering a total area of 7000sqm, to launch a series of food and beverage concepts in addition to Megapolis.
These concepts are strategic to the building of a diversified retail mix which suits the budding spirit of Medina Centrale, dubbed as the The Pearl-Qatar’s town center.
Mohamed Yoosaf, acting general manager of retail leasing at The Pearl-Qatar, expressed delight to see one of the most anticipated entertainment hubs in Doha and at The Pearl-Qatar coming 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 centers 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 this year,” Yoosaf added.
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 2000sqm being in the pipeline among many other concepts which will be announced in due time.
