Al Aali Shopping Complex
The first of a kind to open its doors to the shoppers of Bahrain in November 1996, Al A�ali Shopping Complex offers chic, sophisticated shopping for people with style. The centrepiece is a domed courtyard with superb natural lighting where suq-style market stalls offer a variety of locally produced goods from pickles to perfumes. Corridors lead off, like the spokes in a wheel, to a total of 120, high quality, interesting stores.In addition to its international areas, the mall has created two �suqs�. Tawaweesh resembles an old Bahraini street with its wooden carved windows and balconies. It is home to the Al Bindaira Caf� where you can select from a delicious snack style menu and sample a real local tradition, the shisha or �hubble-bubble� pipe. Opposite, Bateel Dates offers exquisite, regionally-grown dates enhanced with nut or fruit fillings, yummy date jam and handmade chocolates for sweet-toothed customers. Sarraya, the other suq, only adds to the atmosphere.
The mall�s food court has a distinctly ethnic flavour, and the children�s play area, Mariam�s Village, is close by. Also located in the mall are the Official Grand Prix Merchandise store and the offices of British Airways and Emirates Airlines. Department store Jashanmal�s offers a superb selection including books, cosmetics, diningware and other household goods. A major coup is the imminent arrival of The One, a market leader in home furnishings and accessories. The two-level store is set to revolutionise the home furnishings sector in Bahrain with its inventive design concepts.
