|Galleria Shops & Dining|
THE GALLERIA SHOPS & DINING offer a luxury shopping and entertainment experience in the heart of the Spectacular Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort. Featuring restaurants, a night club, and more than 45 retailers offering an exclusive range of products.
“Our merchants will include both high-end ‘household name’ brands, as well as some unique individual stores,” said Jim Dougan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Falls Management Company, which is responsible for development and management of the entertainment complex under agreement to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. “As a result, we’re confident that our Galleria will become as much of a ‘destination’ to visitors as our casino, hotel, and entertainment venue.”
The shopping galleria is unique both in terms of luxury and as one of the few retail facilities in North America that is anchored by a casino. "Retail in most hotels and resorts is something of an after-thought. Our design integrates the retail component with the casino resort complex. We see it as a core part of the overall entertainment experience," Dougan said. "We have been very careful in our selection of tenants, and we are willing to wait to ensure that we get the right tenants for our client base.
The luxury marble, soaring ceilings, domed skylights and other design details in the galleria reflect the overall Belle Époque design of the casino resort itself, and all but one of the galleria restaurants feature views of Niagara Falls. Restaurant offerings include The Famous, an art deco themed, 24-hour restaurant, created by Robert Sniderman, proprietor of The Senator, downtown Toronto’s celebrated restaurant and jazz club. In addition to restaurants, a 10,000-square-foot night club featuring live music and disc jockeys is being developed by the owners of the highly-popular Guvernment, Kool Haus and Ultra Supper Club restaurants in Toronto. The night club is scheduled to open in the fall of 2004.
“In design, materials and quality of tenants, this galleria is on the same level as the top luxury casino resorts in Las Vegas ,” Dougan said. “There is nothing like this in Canada, and we're very excited about the reaction we’re going to get from tourists, hotel guests, gamers and the local community.”
