PingDubai.com takes you on a visual tour around Souk Al Bahar, an Arabesque shopping mall and entertainment destination located in the heart of the prestigious Downtown Dubai, on the Old Town Island.
A project by Emaar, Souk Al Bahar features over 100 shops, in an eclectic retail mix that includes 22 restaurants, cafés and lounges framing the souk’s extensive waterfront promenade.
The “market of the sailor” as the name suggests in Arabic, derives its name from both its traditional souk architecture of natural stone corridors, high archways and subdued lighting and its unique ‘sea-side’ location on an island in the Burj lake. The cultural theme flows throughout the mall, with boutique shops showcasing the Arabian heritage through a mix of authentic handicrafts, fashionwear, perfumes, carpets and furnishings.
Dining at the Souk Al Bahar is a highlight, where one will find an international mix of causal to fine dining restaurants and cafés lining the waterfront promenade and overlooking the Burj Khalifa tower, the tallest building the world. Now open, Souk Al Bahar is a vibrant waterside dining, shopping and entertainment experience for Dubai’s socialites and a must-see destination for tourists.
