It’s true, Express Avenue is the best place to go shopping in Chennai. It’s in the heart of the city and the mall has so much to do. In fact, it only keeps expanding with more stores opening. But there are so many non-shopping related things to do in Express Avenue (EA as it is fondly called) that you can try out and still have a blast. Check out this list of fun things to do in Express Avenue Mall that aren't shopping and find out for yourself.
"Movies To Spas: Fun Things To Do "
Give In To Movies At Escape
When Sathyam opened their multi-screen cinema on the third floor of Express Avenue, it was the best thing to ever happen to moviegoers! Agreed that the PVR deal came as a shocker, but we're glad some key elements haven't changed. Escape has eight screens showing movies of all languages all day. Their confectionery stand is still incredibly popular and continues to offer popcorn, nachos, cold beverages, Indian snacks (chaat and samosas) and even ice cream! It’s an all-round experience that you won’t find anywhere else.
Let The Kiddies Out At Fun City
We can’t forget the kids, of course. While the parents are shopping, the kids get to have a little fun at the open arcade. There are arcade games, a play zone for kids under the age of 12, and the chance to win big prizes in contests happening all day. There are also kiddie rides that play loud music and get the kids excited, and you can be sure that when they walk out of there, they’ll want to go back in right away.
Unwind At O2 Spa
Do you know what is a perfect way to end a long day? A good spa treatment. And Express Avenue has O2 Spa on the third floor for that. Providing services like massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures, O2 Spa will let you properly unwind at the end of the day whether you shop or not!
Live Your Fantasies At Virtual Experiences
Right from adults to kiddies, Virtual Experiences is your escape into a world of fun and fiction. Jumping, flying, bending, racing, tumbling - watching a movie there will let you do all that, in sync with the screen activity! For that added extra, this place also comes with effects like smoke, snowfall, bubbles, thunder, storm, wind, rainfall and more.
Groom Up At Toni & Guy
Perfect for both quick cuts and elaborate makeovers, you can also sort out your salon appointments at Toni & Guy in Express Avenue Mall. This is, in fact, the first Toni & Guy that opened in Chennai and can accommodate up to 15 people! Head there with your squad or fam for a chill salon time!
