Sharjah’s Al Majaz Waterfront will add eight new restaurants and cafés to be opened later this year coinciding with the extension of its second phase.
The new extension will house some new Arabic and international outlets, some of which will open in Sharjah for the first time. The new restaurants promise to promote Al Majaz Waterfront’s unique setting even further.
The list of the new restaurants includes Emirati ‘Al Fanar Restaurant & Café’, Lebanese ‘Levantine Restaurant’, Indian ‘Ushna Restaurant’ and Iranian ‘Anar Restaurant’. The cafés include Illy Caffè, Amorino Gelato ice-cream and Al Rawi library café and a Dunkin’ Donuts.
“Al Majaz Waterfront has become one of the leading tourist and leisure attractions in Sharjah, differentiating itself by providing premium and luxury services and facilities, particularly hospitality,” says Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, COO of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq).
“The selection of regional and international restaurants and cafés perfectly aligns with our strategy of increasing the number of visitors to Al Majaz Waterfront through increasing the number of their options. People of all nationalities visit the attraction, and this development caters to different tastes and preferences while achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction,” he adds.
The AED35 million new extension of Al Majaz Waterfront increases the attraction’s total area to 570,487 sqft, and increases the length of its jogging track to 825 metres. The extension will also increase the size of the Sharjah Fountain, adding 165 parking lots to accommodate the needs of the park’s increasing number of visitors, as well as adding a number of self-service parking lots.
Al Majaz Waterfront hosts a variety of artistic and entertainment activities throughout the year, including film screenings, stage shows, touring performances and firework displays to commemorate national days and festivities, in addition to artistic events held at Maraya Art Centre, which represents a platform for regional and international artistic projects.
