Ali Mall, Quezon City

3.5
#9 of 17 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 neighborhood, this is my regular shopping mall, although not large, but it is convenient, the store has. Due to live here for some time, strongly believe that this Mall was in need of renovation, toilet what restaurants and other stores look old. Free Zumba at the bottom here, but felt that the dance has too few choices. I hope that there are other dances you can learn.

  • 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.
  • Grew up going here with family and now that I have a family of my own, Ali Mall still is a go to place. More food selection please. Sure hope you have your own supermarket like before.
  • Parking will be a challenge. The mall does not offer great choices on shopping. People go here mostly because government satellite offices are here.
  • Foot traffic is not that heavy compared to SM malls. Movie ticket prices are, i think, the least expensive among the malls in Cubao. I like this mall because there's a local outdoor sporting goods store (Basekamp) and a shop that offers services of visually impaired therapists.
  • A lot of places to go to and very convenient. But very complicated to go to. For a non-resident's point of view tho
