A 10-lane modern bowling alley, a pub including billiards and an Italian restaurant – all this will be part of a sports and entertainment complex under the name of MK Bowling, which is to be opened in Galeria Libero in Katowice.
“The decision to sign a contract concerning over 1,400 sqm in Galeria Libero was a natural consequence of our principle of placing the MK Bowling complexes in the best locations and it was preceded by a thorough analysis of the retail offer in Silesia. We chose Libero mostly due to its location, because the southern part of Katowice is characterized by low saturation with retail space and residents’ high purchasing power. The fact that the project of Echo Investment includes innovative architectural solutions which focus on customers’ and tenants’ comfort and convenience was also important for us. Our offer in Libero will be varied; we address it to the people who want to enjoy themselves among family or friends. MK Bowling in Libero will consist of some of the most modern bowling alleys in the region while its other functions will guarantee a rich event calendar,” says Tomasz Stanisławski, owner of MK Bowling.
“Galeria Libero is a place where customers can make purchases in shops of popular fashion chains as well as use a varied restaurant, cultural and entertainment offer. Two levels of Libero are mostly occupied by outlets representing the fashion industry and its top floor is mostly earmarked for relaxation, culture and entertainment. Apart from popular snack bars, there will be regular restaurants and the unconventional sport&social club of Arkadiusz Milik. On the same floor customers will be able to check out the offer of a Helios cinema, a Fabryka Formy fitness club and the modern MK Bowling club combined with an Italian restaurant offering wood oven pizza”, says Marcin Szlufik, senior leasing manager in Echo Investment’s Shopping Centre Department.
