Select Citywalk Mall - Saket
On the weekend, I thought I'd take a trip to Select City Walk Mall located at the Saket District Centre of South Delhi. Developed as a joint venture by the Select Group and the Aarone Group, this mall opened its doors to customers in October 2007. It is spread over an area of around 6 acres and consists of branded retail stores, restaurants, a multiplex cinema, serviced apartments, offices and an outdoor seating area with a dancing fountain. Parking is available for around 2,000 cars.
This medium sized three floor mall has around 125 retail stores featuring international brands such as Aldo, Pantaloons, Calvin Klein, Esprit, French Connection, Gant, Guess, Kipling, La Senza, Levi's, Mango, Next, Pepe Jeans, Replay, Tommy Hilfiger and United Colors of Benetton. My friend picked up a Converse T-shirt which was on sale at the Pantaloons Store. A pianist sits at a grand piano on the first floor of Select Citywalk Mall entertaining the posh crowd that frequents this place for shopping.
The Food Court called 'Food Talk' is based on the second floor. We had some snacks on the outdoor terrace that overlooks the plaza. Here, lots of people, even ladies, were sitting in cushioned areas, smoking. Feeling a bit odd, we went out as soon as a slight drizzle began. The mall also has other restaurants such as Pizza Hut and KFC's inside. For those looking for entertainment, Select Citiwalk Mall has a 1,235 seater, 6 screen PVR Premiere Multiplex that shows the latest movies. This multiplex includes two Gold Class theatres.
Outside the main entrance of Select Citywalk Mall is an amphitheatre type of sitting area with fountains. Named 'Sanskriti', this open air landscaped plaza can be used for cultural events, fairs, festivals, exhibitions and other events. We hung around here, chatting, watching folks playing about in the fountain till it got dark, before taking an auto back home.
