John and I found ourselves walking around
THE NEW BEACH MALL
on JBR's The Walk last weekend.
OMG, it was amazing!
(along with every single person I know),
bashed the building of this mall from its beginning.
Because it sits right beside the Arabian Sea.
Who does that?
Who builds a mall literally on a beach?
Dubai does, that's who!
And, I have to admit, they did it right!
It is simply gorgeous and is choc full of
cafes, restaurants, and shops!
(Just what Dubai needs more of, right?)
As we were walking around
we noticed this sign
saying that the Outdoor Cinema Lounge
was open and ready to use!
We just couldn't believe our luck!
And Frozen Ground (Nicholas Cage) was playing!
We went to check it out and found
white bean bags
and white leather couches waiting for us!
We plopped down,
ordered our dinner (limited menu),
watched a beautiful sunset and waited until it turned dark!
See, just like I said....
it's actually a beach side outdoor cinema!
Finally it was show time!
We were given head phones so we could hear
the movie which was projected on the large screen
on the side of the REEL CINEMA building!
What a great evening it turned out to be!
Afterwards, we walked by this stage (also beach side)
where several Emirati musicians were
singing their hearts out!
The crowd was enthusiastic and the music was great!
BEACH MALL in JBR.....
if you haven't been yet, you simply MUST GO!!
