Rainforest Cafe has opened its doors at Bay Street Complex in St Julian’s. The official opening happened on Wednesday evening in the presence of the Hon. Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection, Clayton Bartolo.
“It is an absolute pleasure to be opening up this new adventurous destination for the Maltese public. We have been working extremely hard in order to bring Rainforest Cafe to Malta, and while the pandemic has posed a number of challenges, we are now absolutely thrilled that all those who visit Bay Street have yet another location to benefit from,” said Bay Street Group CEO, Albert Galea.
The Rainforest Cafe franchise has locations in some of the most notable cities around the world including London, Niagara Falls, Tokyo and Paris.
“The day has come to open the doors to yet another Rainforest Cafe, now also here on the beautiful island of Malta. Our franchise has now expanded to seven countries with over 20 restaurants across the globe. Those visiting the Malta restaurant will get to see life size figures of elephants, tigers, gorillas, snakes, parrots and black panthers. This all adds up to a truly unique and educational experience for all those who visit,” said Jarrett Ingram, Director of International Operations and Franchising of Landry’s.
In his keynote speech, Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo outlined how this complex is a living monument of people who, despite the pandemic, pursued with more investment. “All this is a clear demonstration of a resilient private sector. We promise that you will find us as your helping hand so that the investment you have made is translated into a successful story,” remarked Minister Bartolo.
Instead of taking a defensive approach to your workday, try the more deliberate and regimented approach that is time blocking.
