Inflatable flamingos and dainty stickers serve as reminders for diagonal seating arrangement as part of the health and safety protocols observed in dining areas at SM Megamall.

These are some of the highlights of creative and innovative dining spaces at SM’s Premier malls to make the recently allowed dining out experience more fun and exciting for customers while practicing health and safety protocols.

The Mega Atrium located at the second level of SM Megamall features Instagram-worthy displays of gigantic emojis, some of which are wearing masks and other protective equipment.

Al fresco dining becomes a top of the world experience at the Podium in a lush garden setting amid stunning skyscrapers and at SM Aura Premier’s Skypark with its safari-inspired theme.  Both the Podium and Aura also have set up dining areas on their respective atriums where customers can enjoy their ordered meals while observing social distancing.

SM Megamall’s Event Center, on the other hand, has been transformed into a tropical paradise with inflatable flamingos and pink, purple, and yellow inflatable floaters. In the area, which can accommodate up to 34 diners, pink inflatable flamingos and summery stickers also serve as reminders for diagonal seating arrangements as part of the health and safety protocols in the mall’s dining areas.

Also at SM Megamall, the Mega Atrium will bring a lot of smiles to customers. Its Instagram-worthy displays of different emojis, some wearing masks and other protective equipment. There are also larger-than-life Smiley Chairs in the area, which has a maximum seating capacity of 18 persons.

The SM Mall of Asia has transformed its airy bright event center into an extended dining area, where the mall’s magical friends—Leon the Lion, Haley the Hippo, Gerry the Giraffe, Macky the Monkey, Cyril the Squirrel, Benny the Bunny, Elly the Elephant, Hanna the Panda and Sebi the Zebra—can join in the set to make dining more fun. MOA’s friends in miniature are also placed on top of tables as reminders to stay one meter apart.
