Madar – a leisure and entertainment destination located in the heart of the Aljada megaproject in Sharjah – has announced six major attractions. Zad will be a new address for the UAE’s food lovers, with 15 different brands selling a wide range of cuisines in a colourful and contemporary setting. Each outlet is housed in a redesigned shipping container, with brands ranging from popular coffee start-up Saddle to gelato café Amorino, and from Sushi Station to vegan burger outlet The Vurger Co.

Featuring tower frames, swings, embedded trampolines and slides, Playscape is an immersive and exciting children’s adventure zone. The site also includes a climbing wall and activity nets and is sure to be one of the most popular parts of Madar. Located adjacent to Playscape is Madar’s Skatepark, a new home for adventure sports enthusiasts.

For outdoor events, Madar’s Amphitheatre has a maximum capacity of 500 people and can be used to host film screenings, markets, parties and musical performances. On the other hand, YourSpace has been designed as a full-fledged events hall to benefit the entire Aljada community, with individuals and corporates able to hire either all or part of the venue. When not booked out, YourSpace will host studios, exhibitions, markets and conferences.
