A’Rukn

You could be forgiven for thinking the courtyard by Souk Madinat is a stopping-off point on the way to somewhere else. But it’s really a destination in itself. A luxuriant lesson in Arabic culture is as simple as stopping by A’ Rukn, situated within the courtyard itself. This street café has an unmistakably Arabic flavour. Order a spread of Arabic mezze or seafood, enjoy world renowned Arabic sweets, cakes and pastries, and a fine selection of teas and coffees. Take a moment to soak up the regal surroundings of the Theatre foyer with a cocktail, or simply enjoy watching Souk life pass you by as you enjoy the timeless, perfumed meditation that is shisha.
