The mall also houses the top of the line Holmes Place gym, a favorite of expatriates and local celebrities. There are a number of shops selling infant and kid’s fashion and accessories such as Chicco, Zara Kids, and Au Pays des Mimis, as well as plenty of educational toys and books, making this a parent and child-friendly shopping center. A food court is located close to the multiplex theater, and has restaurants ranging from the ubiquitous McDonalds and KFC to more interesting delights from around the world such as running sushi, Chinese food, steaks, Greek food, Vegan cuisine, Middle Eastern cuisine, and much more. Shops and services are opened Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. till 9 p.m., the Tesco hypermarket from 7 a.m. till midnight, and restaurants from 11 a.m. till 11 p.m. The only warning, Nový Smíchov tends to be quite busy.
