Time Out began with the concept of a place of clean entertainment and good quality food at low prices for students, families and busy executives of Dhaka city.
On 5th November, 2000 Time Out was launched by two sisters Sangita Ahmed and Samina Salman. With a lot of encouragement and help from their husbands, H.A.R Jewel and Salman Masud, the name Time Out was decided upon, depicting the concept of respite from the busy schedules of city life.
On the old premises of where Pink City Shopping Mall was later built, Time Out, a small 100 square feet shop was decorated in 2 weeks with seating for just15 people. Gulshan two is one of the areas of the popular haunts for the hip and trendy of Dhaka city. An old cook from the Mirpur Bihari Camp was found and convinced to move in to nearby Kalachandpur. It was a family venture, where our entire families would put in a helping hand after work hours!
