The Avenues – Bahrain is the first shopping & Leisure destination of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain, with a unique seafront location stretching 1.5 km. strategically located in the heart of Manama, along King Faisal Road. The development brings a new concept to the Kingdom, with a design inspired by The Avenues – Kuwait that gives the visitors an outdoor feeling while remaining indoors, protected from the heat by a ceiling that allows sunlight in.
Alshaya Trading Co. has opened an exciting choice of 38 leading international brands at The Avenues – Bahrain earlier this week. The opening included eight new brands making their debut in the Kingdom of Bahrain that will be followed by another seven new brands set to open in the coming weeks and months.
The mall’s opening day featured new brands such as cosmetics powerhouses NYX and Clinique; home furnishing brand West Elm; fashion store Phase Eight; and jewelry and accessories specialist Icing. Customers also witnessed the long-awaited debut of The Cheesecake Factory; organic Belgian restaurant Le Pain Quotidien; and American chocolatier Bridgewater Chocolate.

The new brands will join a stellar line-up of some of the world’s most-loved brands operated by Alshaya at the mall, including Starbucks, H&M, Mothercare, Victoria’s Secret, MAC, The Body Shop and Pottery Barn.
