Souq Al Shanasiyah

One of the oldest souqs in the region, named after the state of Shanas merchants who used to populate the souq, now reconstructed for new experiences.

Built on the foundations of one of the oldest and most vibrant souks in the region, this beautifully renovated souk specialises in regional designers and unique wares. Each shop is divided in two, with the artisans busy at work on one side and their goods for sale on the other.

Shop for stylish furniture and homewares, prayer beads, Arabic perfumes and oils, and high-quality clothing including bespoke kandoras and handcrafted abayas. Refuel at a speciality coffee house and enjoy delicious Emirati cuisine at Al Saroud Traditional Restaurant.
