    Irish pub at the Dove Hotel: Guiness is good for you

    by TheWanderingCamel Updated Oct 11, 2005

    Make mine a pint

    The Irish pub, beneath the Dove Hotel, is another breath of the olde country.

    Strictly a working man's pub, but with such additions as "Quiz Night" and a dance floor, this is another place that is popular both with expats and Amman's young people.

    This club was like something out of Paris. It was ultra chic, sophisicated, modern, and loungey. The decor was great for entourages and double dates. I have some of the appetizers and the Seafood Spring Rolls were off the chain. And the kitchen stays open until closing. The music was fun middle eastern local stuff but they played Twista and I was COOL!! I had the best time there!!

    Cuban salsa at Tradervics Amman

    It was a surprise to go to Tradervics and find live music all night. The ambience is perfet to have snacks and drinks, or to go to have formal dinner. They have a cuban band playing live music all night.

    Thursday to weekend is great. People that are learning to dance salsa gather in this place. And you will eventually forget that you are in the Middle east with such a nice live music.

    Located on Rainbow Street, Books café is part bookshop, part restaurant and part bar. It is decorated in ultra modern colourful designs and is a great spot to come for pre- or post-dinner drinks, some shisha (hookah) or to have dinner. It is popular among locals and tourists.

    Bel Mondo: Family Place in Amman

    terrasse of Bel Mondo

    I was just passing by one evening and I decided to try the place the next day with some friends.
    It is really the typical Amman nightspot for family or more conservative young couple.
    The place is often full and therefore the service is slow.
    The menu drink is fine, basic food is offered but no alcohol served !

    Al-Pasha Turish Bath: Turish Bath

    by Sambawalk Written May 19, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In addition to shopping, having a very luxury turish bath is a must in Amman. You need to make reservation before you go to avoid disappointment. One session costs about US$20.

    This place is near 1st circle.

    Vinaigrette: For the view...

    by Djinn76 Written Jan 16, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from the citadel

    Located at the last floor of the Howard Johnson hotel, imho this would be the only reason to recommend this restaurant. The view on Amman is indeed amazing! Except for that, this is just a hype place. The food is not really impressive, not bad but nothing local, it’s just what you could find anywhere in our western countries.
    Unless you simply want to eat what you are used to eat (some people are like that), I would only recommend the place for a drink, just to enjoy the view.

    Dress Code: Casual is ok...

    Villa Café: Smoking...

    by Djinn76 Written Jan 16, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Darat-al-Funum, nothing related...

    A place to cool down close to the 5th circle, usually not too crowded, it is possible to have some food but this is not the main purpose.

    People come here mainly to smoke the 'shisha' or 'hubblie bubblie' if you prefer. This is a traditional tool where you burn some flavored tobacco and where the smoke is first flowing through water.

    Since I’m not a smoker I didn’t want to try it and start coughing! I still remember the day when I tried to smoke a cigarette: so disgusting!! However since then I gave it a try! This is completely unrelated to smoking!! All the bad smell is caught by the water; it’s just as if you were breathing some perfumed hot air… It’s definitely worth a try…

    Dress Code: Casual will do!

    Da Willy (Books@Cafe): Relax and be seen.....

    by shotgunsally Updated Oct 22, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hubbly Bubbly and beer on the terrace

    On top of Jebel Amman, this place is the epitome of cool. The nighttime perspective is of another hill brightly lit and serene. The decor of the restaurant is eclectic and bright. This is the place to relax, listen to music (often by the clientele), smoke argileh, drink a few pitchers, and eat some great food. The staff is friendly, helpful, and completely fluent in English. From other tables a mix of English, Arabic and French can be heard-- often at the same table. It is a place to see and be seen for the youth of Amman. The restaurant, Da Willy, is ontop of a bookshop specializing in English content and Internet Cafe (Books@Cafe). Local luxury items (aromatherapy, gifts) and clothing is also available. Though it can be pretty pricey for the experience, it was well worth it.

    Dress Code: No dress code, but be stylish to be noticed. Western dress, with some girls even wearing tank tops!

    tche tche bar: smoking nargileh

    by call_me_rhia Written Nov 10, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    jibrail smoking nargileh

    For nargileh there is a place, again in Shmeisani (Amman). It's called Tche-Tche and is less trendy than the Marriot but so very much nicer: there's agreat selection of teas too. It's a place where it's considered OK for a woman to go in the evening, though i'm not sure the smoking would be approved for a Jordanian woman. Strawberry-flavoured nargileh is recommended: I'm still dreaming of it.

    Dress Code: casual but neat

    Champions Bar: a well-deserved beer

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the marriott hotel

    There's not much nightlife in Amman, I must say. The little you can find is normally loceted inside international 5 stars hotel. Because I was longing to have a beer - and it was late at night, the only solution was to go to the Champions Bar inside the Marriott Hotel. General comments: it's just another hotel bar - but at least it served alcohol, which is not the case in more typical Jordanian bars

    books@cafe: Only beer in town

    by boltonian Written Nov 11, 2009

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not too many places to grab a beer in town. Up the steep steps from Downtown is Rainbow Street.

    There are a few bars and places to eat here.

    The busiest by a mile was books@cafe, just off the main street.

    You will pass a bookstore, look up, there is a huge bar above. It sells nice food and beer 5JD a glass. Has music and sport on TV. Also great views over the town below.

  • Various: Fun Times/Fun People

    At first upon arriving in Amman on business, i was wary about what to expect for after business hours fun on my 2 week stay there. I am a Chicagoan who is used to having a good time with friends and family. But i can tell you, after meeting some Jordanian American's living there, i had the TIME of a lifetime and can't wait to go back. It was absolutely a good time with really good people. The food, drinks, and people were second to none....I don't want to name establishments because my company won't allow it but they were all just fantastic...CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK IN JUNE......

    Grand Palace Lobby Lounge: Main Lounge and Bar of Grand Palace Hotel

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    The Grand Palace Hotel has only one bar cum lounge and that is the Lobby Lounge, and like many areas in Jordan, you can smoke right inside the lounge itself as the middle east is a bastion of smoking. The lobby Lounge is open 24/7 as it is just beside the front desk of the hotel. you can order an assortment of local and international beers here like the most popular beer in Jordan, the Amstel draft at JD 8 and other international brands like Heineken or Carlsberg at JD 10 per bottle. assorted cocktails like Mai Tai or Long Island Iced Tea will cost JD 9 per small glass.

    then you can just go the next door to the Regency Palace and drinks at their library lounge or at the Trader Vic's or at the Le Piano Lounge.

    Opens: 24/7

    Dress Code: Casual, no shorts or flip flops or tank tops allowed
