Souk Al Bahar
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 recognisable feature of Souk Al Bahar is its architecture – natural stone corridors, restrained lighting and Arabian decor.
