Funoon District is a project that is currently being developed in Sharjah by the Dubai-based restaurant consultancy, Restaurant Secrets Inc (RSI).
Funoon District is an extension of the Al Majaz Amphitheatre development, which is an initiative of Sharjah Government Media Bureau. The new district is set to be an art, food, and entertainment hub. The development will house more than 20 food trucks, kiosks, restaurants, and cafés, focusing on UAE brands.
RSI has said in a statement that work is currently underway, and that the project is scheduled to open to the public in the last quarter of this year.
Ralph Homer, CEO of RSI, said: “Funoon District has been incubated to be a casual social space that brings together people of different interests, talents, and backgrounds, including musicians, foodies, families, and artists.
“One of the unique elements of this destination is that it is dedicated to support remarkable home-grown brands. Every retailer and food and beverage provider at Funoon is a brand that has been proudly made in the UAE,” he added.
