Time Out Market Dubai joins existing Time Out Markets in Lisbon, New York, Chicago, Miami, Boston and Montreal. New locations are heading to London and Prague.

“Our extraordinarily brilliant Time Out Dubai editors have expert knowledge about the city and what food and culture cannot be missed,” added Souillat.

“Alongside Emaar and the incredible Souk Al Bahar building, we have created a completely unique concept in the heart of Downtown Dubai.”

“The unique fingerprint of Time Out Market Dubai’s interior design is the addition of natural palettes and materials, influenced by the distinct colours surrounding the city,” said João Cepeda, president and creative director at Time Out Market.
