Nothing like spending the evening or the entire day at a mall; good food, good shopping, movies and most of all free air conditioning. Malls have become the hallmark of a developed city and aamchi Pune has its fair share of them. It was only a matter of time before we ranked our top five. You may or may not agree, but nothing like some good ol’ retail therapy.
SGS Mall, Camp
This happens to be one of the oldest malls in our city. The main USP of this mall is its location. Since there are no malls in Camp, this place seems to be doing pretty well. It’s also the smallest mall in our countdown. Food choices include, Pizza Hut, Mc Donald’s, Yo China and a few more. Brands are pretty decent too.
Amanora Town Centre, Hadapsar
Open a few years ago, this place has two blocks to it; East and West. They have many restaurants with outdoor seating and a view of the fountain. The fountain is the main attraction here. It also has decent shopping and houses Pune’s Harley Davidson showroom. If bikes are your thing, you are sure to see some good looking hogs parked here.
Inorbit Mall, Wadagaon Sheri
Pune’s only Inorbit opened in July 2011, spread over 500,000 sq.ft. It can hold its own in this city. They have ample parking with almost everything you may want from any mall. Food is decent and PVR Cinemas is always a plus. A very well-maintained mall in a good location.
Seasons Mall, Magarpatta
This one houses an massive food court with a 15-screen Cinepolis including a VIP section, definitely making it worth a visit. It has Pune’s only TGIF. The Go-Karting in the parking lot is also a crowd puller. Every weekend has some event or another with movie stars making their way here to promote their upcoming films.
Phoenix Marketcity, Viman Nagar
Reigning the countdown with 3.4 million sq.ft of pure pleasure, Phoenix became the biggest mall in our city when it opened its doors in January 2013. Visitors are spoilt for choice from top international brands to our desi ones. Phoenix keeps reinventing itself with new décor, different stores and there is always something new every time you go. BMW giveaways seem to be going on almost all year round. Food, shopping, movies, hypermarket, whatever your indulgence, you can find it here. Thank you Phoneix MarketCity, for being Pune’s most loved mall destination.
