RLC' newest lifestyle landmark
The bustling corner of Aurora Blvd and Hemady St. near New Manila in Quezon City is a place for nostalgia. Kids, who are probably now all grown-up, used to frequent this iconic spot for some of the most delicious ice creams and shakes that could be found in Metro Manila. The place was known as the Magnolia Ice Cream House, and was a favourite spot where family and friends bonded over Banana Split, Peach Melba, Black and White, and Ernie and Bert, to name just a few of our favorite ice cream delights.
Today, a new landmark has risen that promises to foster even more unforgettable memories. Introducing Robinsons Magnolia, an elegant yet relaxing lifestyle center from property giant, Robinsons Land Corporation.
Paying homage to the famous ice cream house, Robinsons Magnolia is a multi-storey shopping mall with a distinct mix of shops and restaurants for the entire family. The fashion forward will delight in international brands such as Topshop/Topman, Mango, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Muji, Warehouse, Anne Klein,Tommy Hilfiger, Fred Perry, Lacoste, Penguin, Perry Ellis, Ecco, Nine West, Promod and Miss Sixty. High street staples such as Gap, Cotton On, Aeropostale, Springfield, Cache Cache, Superga, and Steve Madden cater to the younger crowd. Popular local retailers such as Bench, Penshoppe, Bayo, Plains and Prints, Celine, Folded and Hung make for even more choices. There are also famous specialty shops such as La Senza, Samsonite, Philip Stein, Charriol, Beauty Bar, Healthy Options and Howards Storage.
The dining experience will never be the same for foodies in this part of the metro. Gustatory delights await shoppers with the wide array of cuisines offered by such restaurants as Tao Yuan, Thai Bistro, Conti's, UCC, Sumosam, Clawdaddy, New Orleans, Elias, Uncle Cheffy, and Buffet 101. Dessert shops such as Patchi, Red Mango, Happy Lemon, Mary Grace and Jamba Juice will surely tempt even the most disciplined. And if a quick bite is what you're after, Robinsons Magnolia has one of the fanciest food courts in the metro, featuring island-type food stalls with open kitchens that tantalize with freshly cooked dishes.
Hobbyists will surely be glad to know there's a True Value hardware store in the mall along with Gourdo's, Bow and Wow, and a Power Mac Center. For entertainment, there's a Tom's World and Gymboree for kids, and four digital cinemas that are easily accessible from the mall's al fresco area. Movietime is now more fun with so many snacks to choose from in the cinema lobby.
The mall is anchored by Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Department Store and Robinsons Appliance.
