Time Out Bahrain staff
‘My space’, wherever and whenever that may be. It could be in the car driving to work or reading a book in the living room, or hanging out with a friend over a cup of coffee. Between owning a business and having a toddler, any time I get to myself is instantly my favourite space.
Café Italia in Adliya – the food, service and ambience are great. I have recommended it to a lot of newcomers and visitors to Bahrain. I love their escalope and buffalo mozzarella salad. So for those who have not tried the place yet, now is a good time.
Jashanmal bookstores in the City Centre or the Seef malls. I am an avid reader and enjoy looking around for a good book, be it fiction, non-fiction, biography and children’s books for my son. I can spend hours, time permitting, in a book store, as I enjoy finding new authors.
The Bahrain Fort Museum in the Seef area. It has a great coffee shop and a great view just around sunset when the lights in the fort are also on. It is so far a well kept secret here in Bahrain and well worth a visit, especially when the weather is good. MyGym is located in Al Victory Suites, Seef (17 566 566). Open Sun-Wed 9am-6.30pm; Thu, Sat 9am-1pm. Ask about the children’s exercise programmes, and booking a kids’ party.
