MANILA – Ali Mall in Cubao welcomes the vibrant collectors’ community in the country as it formally launched its newest wing on Friday.

ALI X – which stands for Arts, Lifestyle, and Interests Experience – is located on the mall’s upper ground floor and is composed of stores selling antiques, memorabilia, and novelty items.

Inspired by the grand bazaars in Europe, the new space also has an art-themed café, an art supplies store, a ukulele shop, and a karate dojo, and will soon have establishments catering to gamers and other hobbyists.

Opened in 1976, Ali Mall is considered the first major shopping mall in the Philippines.
