Al Aali Shopping Complex


As one of the premium shopping centers in the Kingdom of Bahrain, Al A’ali Shopping Complex, was established as a high-end shopping destination and was designed to present a modern yet traditional Arabic- influenced architecture style. Work began in 1995 and was completed in October 1996 in one of Bahrain’s prime districts, Seef. The Complex is spread over 52,000 square meters, comprising 3 levels with 5 entrances, a wide variety of shops and restaurants in addition to parking spaces for 600 cars.
