Shakespeare & Co. opens in Bahrain
Shakespeare & Co. yesterday announced its official opening in Bahrain by hosting an exclusive launch “The Tea Party”. Invited guests were treated to an extravagant afternoon of 18th-century European themed entertainment and food in garden party setting at the Shakespeare & Co. venue in Zallaq Springs. Shakespeare & Co., a UAE based franchise with more than 50 branches in the MENA region and the United States, is brought to the kingdom by Bahrain-based Rahim Holdings W.L.L.
Ali Isa Abdulrahim, Rahim Holdings Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted with the positive response from Bahrain’s customers during our soft opening period and we’re committed to ongoing quality, wholehearted hospitality and excellent value for money.” “We look forward to expanding further with the opening of a second Shakespeare & Co. at the Wharf Project in Bahrain Bay later this year,” Ali Isa Abdulrahim said. Shakespeare & Co.’s first Bahrain location is set in Zallaq Springs, where guests can choose to take a turn in the gardens and relax by the lake before enjoying their meal inside the beautiful restaurant-café.
In addition to the magnificent décor and views, Bahrain’s diners can expect a refined and eclectic range of international culinary favourites, from classic comfort-food appetizers and Mediterranean-style sharers to sophisticated European entrées, and hand-crafted desserts, pastries and chocolates, accompanied by a flavoursome selection of hot and cold beverages. Established in Dubai in 2001, over the years Shakespeare & Co. has won multiple awards, the latest one winning the Best Café category at the BBC Good Food Middle East’s Dining Awards in 2018.
