Manaíra Mall, named after the street it’s located on, is a well known Brazilian mall. The Manaíra Mall was open to the public on November 11 in 1989 and ranks among the most significant malls that can be found in the country and is the largest mall in the Brazilian state of Paraiba. The mall soon became a tourist attraction as well.
In 2014, the Manaíra Mall opened a restaurant area featuring gourmet restaurants. The very first restaurant to become a part of the newly opened gourmet space was the Capital Steak House which is also the most popular ost one to this day.
The Manaira Shopping Mall is fitted with everything a visitor might want. There are more than a couple of hundred stores, and there will be new shops in the future, the mall also has eight cinema rooms, 2 of which are for 3D. There is also a gaming center, a bowling alley with its own bar area, a park and buffet for children, a gym with a pool, banking fascilities. The College of Higher Education of Paraiba also has an extension in the Manaira Shopping Mall. The food court has been expanded once before to add more seating areas and more restaurants. There is also a Gourmet Space where visitors can enjoy luxury restaurants and cafes.
One of the most impressive parts of the Manaira Shopping Mall has got to be the structure on its rooftop which was erected in 2009. Th Domus Hall is a stage that can accommodate about 10 000 people. There is a central ground area to fit a crowd as well as mezzanines with cabins where visitors can enjoy lounge music as well as the private bars. The Domus Hall has had many of Brazil’s most excellent performers sing on the stage and a few international singers as well. The area can be rented for large events or formal parties.
The Manaira Shopping Mall was established by Mr. Roberto Santiago to create a place for fun and entertainment for friends and family. He likes spending a lot of his time at Manaira even though he is the owner of another shopping center called Mangeira. Mr. Roberto Santiago likes to have a hands-on part in the operation and maintenance of the Manaira Shopping and personally overlooks every expansion project of the mall.
In 2016, Manaira Shopping had an expansion of the garage area. In Brazil, there was a crisis going on in the construction industry at the time. As every expansion project for the mall, that one was also a rather significant one in size. Mr. Roerto Santiago saw it through from start to finish by actively commanding and managing the work so that it gets done despite the limitations.
