Vibrant and cosmopolitan, Hoora is one of Bahrain’s trendiest neighbourhoods. It sits in the district of Manama and is one of the city’s most coveted nightlife destinations. Bars, hotels, restaurants and nightclubs dot the street, with both Arabic and Western options on the table. It also supports one of Bahrain’s most vibrant cultural scenes, with museums, galleries and theatres dotting the northern waterfront.
Exhibitions Avenue anchors the district and steps up as Hoora’s busiest thoroughfare. On weekends and evenings, locals and tourists alike descend on the Avenue. The Beit Al Quran complex houses one of the world’s best collections of Islamic manuscripts and art, with the La Fontaine Contemporary Arts Centre serving as one of the country’s most important cultural hubs.
Hoora enjoys a picturesque location on Bahrain’s waterfront, just steps from the luxe Marina Garden Park complex. It’s an easy 15-minute drive from Bahrain International Airport, located just across the causeway on Muharraq Island.
Despite Bahrain’s reputation as a modern city, parts of it are still wonderfully historic. Many of Hoora’s buildings date back to the early 20th century when traditional Gulf style architecture dominated the scene. Today Hoora is a great place to explore Bahrain’s colourful past, as well as its ultra-modern future.
