For All Food and Culture Lovers: Time Out Market is Heading to Bahrain in 2024!

Time Out Market – the food and cultural market bringing the best of the city together under one roof – is set to open towards the end of 2024 in the heart of Manama!

It will be located on the top floor of City Centre Bahrain, with more than 35,000 sq ft of room, offering plenty of space to showcase an editorially curated mix of the best local and home-grown talents from award-winning chefs to up-and-coming restaurateurs and artists.

There will be eleven kitchens offering a variety of cuisines, a dessert counter, a coffee shop, two bars, one exhibition space, one stage, and an al fresco rooftop. With more than 900 seats on two levels, guests will have the opportunity to come together at communal tables in a uniquely designed space and get a true taste of Bahrain. To curate the culinary lineup, the Time Out Market team will test and taste food across the city to uncover the best talents – and then only the very best will be invited to join the Market.

The market is currently located in six cities: the first opened in Lisbon in 2014 as the world’s first editorially curated food and cultural market and its success led to openings in New York, Boston, Montreal, Chicago and Dubai. More Time Out Market locations are in the pipeline in nine cities including Porto, Cape Town, Barcelona, Vancouver and Bahrain with more to come – and while this is now a concept popular around the world, the execution of each Market is distinctly local.

Sandy Hayek, Time Out Market CEO said: “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. This is where we will bring the best of Bahrain’s vibrant culinary scene together under one roof – the food here is incredibly diverse and culturally rich and we are looking forward to showcasing the best local talent at Time Out Market Bahrain.”

Khalifa Bin Braik, Chief Executive Officer, of Majid Al Futtaim Asset Management commented: “Majid Al Futtaim is dedicated to creating retailing destinations that bring world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment activities to the MENA region. We are delighted to be partnering with Time Out Market to introduce this unique offering to Bahrain’s residents and visitors, further cementing our commitment to supporting The Kingdom of Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030 and creating great moments for everyone, every day.”
