Restaurant Secrets, the consultants behind over 200 restaurant concepts across the GCC, are set to launch their biggest development yet – Funoon District in Sharjah. As the destination developers & lease management company, the consultancy will bring to life numerous food trucks, kiosks, restaurants and cafés to this destination.
Funoon District offers itself as a canvas to painters, musicians, artists and chefs. A hub of art, food and culture, the destination will become an important landmark in the region. With the breathtaking Al Majaz Amphitheatre as Funoon’s backdrop, not only will the district come alive with food, flavors and spectacular visual displays, but inspiring sounds from local and international artists.
“Funoon District has been incubated to be a casual social space that brings together people of different interests, talents and backgrounds across musicians, foodies, families and artists. We are honored to have been awarded the task to develop the region’s most unique destination by HH Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi,” says Ralph Homer, CEO of Restaurant Secrets.
“Our team has been involved over the last year to bring creative yet accessible ideas to the ever growing needs of the leisure seeker. One of the unique elements of this destination is that it is dedicated to support remarkable home-grown brands. Every retailer & F&B provider at Funoon is a brand that has been proudly Made in the UAE,” he added.
Development has already started and is in full swing to be open to public in the last quarter of this year. Sharjah’s first permanent Food Truck – Buns of Steel has already made its debut at Funoon at the Al Majaz Amphitheatre with the first ‘Eat like the Locals’ truck that serves Emirati cuisine inspired sandwiches.
“With over 20 F&B outlets, outdoor trucks & food containers as well as various street art & music initiatives, Cinema under the skies, Ramadan Markets and Food Theaters; Funoon District will bring in a new era in leisure at value prices,” added Homer.
