When the scorching heat of the Arabian sun finally mellows out in the winter months (Oct–Apr), al fresco fare in Block 338, Bahrain’s bohemian dining district, is de rigueur. Liou’s is perfect for a ladies' luncheonette and art aficionados will go gaga at Al Riwaq’s café. La Ventana, with its homey ambiance and tasty sweets, is ideal for dessert. Do a late afternoon visit to nearby Al Fateh Mosque before enjoying tapas (try La Vinoteca Barcelona), dinner, and a nightcap all in Block 338.
