Souk Al Bahar

Souk Al Bahar is a modern twist on a traditional Middle Eastern marketplace. Found in the heart of the city, this popular hub combines shopping, entertainment, and dining. Meaning ‘market of the sailor’ in Arabic, Souk Al Bahar sits by the water in Downtown Dubai.

It is accessible through the beautiful walkway of Dubai Mall, overlooking The Dubai Fountain with the Burj Khalifa towering above. The frequented location makes this venue a regular spot to soak up the views of the world’s tallest tower, especially during New Year’s Eve celebrations. The most recognizable feature of Souk Al Bahar is its architecture – natural stone corridors, restrained lighting, and Arabian decor.

Shop and dine at Souk Al Bahar

The indoor souk houses over 20 shops and 17 restaurants with views of the captivating waterfront promenade. Alleyways are lined with a mix of fashion, Arabian handicrafts, perfumes, and antiques which promise to deliver a memorable cultural experience. Although fairly modern, visitors can still be immersed in the heritage and traditions of Dubai.

Since 2021, the well-loved Time Out Market has taken up residence at the souk, bringing 17 of the city’s best homegrown culinary concepts – including Reif Japanese Kushiyaki, Scoopi Café, and Pitfire Pizza – to its venue, which features chic, dimly-lit interiors and a wraparound outdoor terrace.
