PLAY is thrilled to announce the launch of the PLAY Lounge – a fantastic new entertainment space specifically designed for children eight and above. Inspired by the needs of older children and built with their recommendations in mind, the interactive lounge offers a variety of fun and educational activities that encourage the children to boost their creativity and imagination.

The PLAY Lounge includes three main areas that cater to several preferences. The first space consists of a cooking and crafts room that will further enhance children’s minds and personalities through activities like baking blueberry cream-cheese muffins or designing dream catchers. The second space is a gaming zone, fully outfitted with televisions and gaming consoles and board games, which motivate children to learn and develop leadership qualities. Lastly, the third space is a karaoke performance area where children can belt out their favorite tunes in a theater-like ambiance.

While PLAY previously catered its facility to toddlers, the PLAY Lounge offers pre-teens a new space for leisure and entertainment. Siblings of all ages are now welcome to experience the numerous activities that PLAY provides, giving parents a one-stop shop for children of all ages. The duration of each PLAY session in the lounge is two hours and priced at 10 BD.

EVENT: The Make-up Maki Launch

The Make-up Maki Product Shot

On Thursday, November 21, we organized an event to launch The Make-up Maki, a collaboration between Maki and The Make-up Manual. The Make-up Maki is the latest addition to Maki’s extensive menu. Maki approached Mai Almoayed, Bahrain’s very own make-up guru who is also a make-up artist. She founded The Make-up Manual and hosts professional classes to educate women about make-up and skincare. Maki approached Mai to design her own maki.

The Make-up Maki is an explosion of flavors for one’s taste buds, with ingredients that create a harmony of decadent taste. The Make-up Maki incorporates tempura prawn, avocado, rice pearl, wasabi flakes, drizzled extra virgin olive oil, topped with chopped tempura, cherry tomato, cucumber, carrots, thakwan, spring onion, and lastly, a drizzle of mango and strawberry sauce.

The concept of the maki is to portray the beauty of make-up and colorful palettes, with a surprising twist of flavorful ingredients. In addition, the vibrant maki reflects Almoayed’s lively and fun personality, which is essential in namesake dishes.

Visit Maki at World Trade Center to try The Make-up Maki – which is not only visually beautiful, but will excite your taste buds!

Below are images of the dinner where The Make-up Maki was carefully selected, the kitchen rolling of the maki, and the private event:
