Ali Mall, Quezon City

3.5
#9 of 15 in Shopping in Quezon City
Ali Mall is the first major shopping mall in the Philippines. It is located at Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City beside SM Cubao. The mall was named in honor of boxer Muhammad Ali, and was built in 1976, making it one of the oldest malls in the country. Recently, they relaunched the new Cinemas and Food Court.HistoryConstruction on the mall began in 1975 after Muhammad Ali's boxing victory against Joe Frazier in Araneta Coliseum, dubbed "Thrilla in Manila". At the time there were no malls in the entire country, so Ali addressed a speech to the Philippines to build a shopping mall near the Araneta Center in honor of his victory, a shopping mall with a floor area of 62,000 sq.m. The shopping mall was completed within the year and was inaugurated on June 30, 1976. Ali himself attended the ceremony.In the 1980s, the mall has been undergoing expansions and renovations since its construction. In 2009, an expansion to Ali Mall was opened.

  • Food very good - both had spaghetti and fries and iced tea, and they honoured my disabled rail card and gave me discount  more »
  • Good shopping mall, we can any product and so many food outlets to eat, different types of food, best price  more »
  • I live in the vicinity, this is a shopping mall I often come, although it is not big, but very convenient, there are some shops. Having lived here for some time, I strongly believe that the mall needs to be refurbished, and that the toilet restaurant and other shops look older. There is a free school at the bottom of the bar, but feel too little dance choice. Hope there are other dances that can be learned.

  • A cozy place to shop & watch your fave movies and even have a dine in and out around the mall satisfying your day to make more shopping within the vicinity. There are malls outside the mall that will keep more of your time to window shop again and enjoy too the ambiance of the places surrounding it.
  • With some parts that are currently under renovation, future developments for Ali Mall looks promising. The location is advantageous since both the old and the new bus centers are at its west and north sides, respectively. The presence of government agencies and offices on its top floor is also a convenient service.
  • The Government Center located inside the mall is a one-stop shop for all your needs. The mall was renovated to feature modern design and a fresh new look. It houses cinema theatres as well should you want to watch movies with less people around.
  • i used to hang out here. it has been a great place for family strolling and to have lunch. i would highly recommend this place.
  • great place with lots of options. They have government satellite offices here as well. Building's a little too old tho and needs renovation.
