In an exciting development for food and culture enthusiasts, Time Out Market is gearing up to make its debut in the heart of Manama towards the end of 2024. Nestled on the top floor of City Centre Bahrain, this eagerly awaited culinary destination is set to rejuvenate the region’s gastronomic landscape while delivering on the mall’s promise of hyper-localized, joyful experiences.
Spanning 35,000 square feet, Time Out Market Bahrain will serve as a curated showcase for the finest local talents, featuring award-winning chefs and emerging artists. Eleven kitchens will offer diverse cuisines, complemented by a dessert counter, a cozy coffee shop, two bars, an exhibition space, a stage for entertainment, and an inviting al fresco rooftop. With more than 900 seats across two levels, guests can commune at communal tables within a uniquely designed space, savoring the true essence of Bahrain’s culinary scene.
To assemble its stellar culinary lineup, the Time Out Market team will embark on a city-wide culinary journey, seeking out the very best talents to grace their kitchens.
City Centre Bahrain, already renowned as the leading shopping, leisure, and entertainment hub in Bahrain, with over 340 brands and 14.6 million visitors annually, will further solidify its reputation as the go-to destination for tourists and locals alike.
Sandy Hayek, Time Out Market CEO, expressed excitement about this partnership, saying: “We are delighted to partner with Majid Al Futtaim Properties Bahrain to open Time Out Market Bahrain in City Centre Bahrain – a very popular location in the region.
