Worst experience ever!!
Mar. 2021 • Friends
I am an American tourist and I brought my Jordanian friends to buy some gifts at the no tax prices as they are supposed to be in all duty-free shops in the world! What is different this time is that they refused selling anything to tourists and foreigners but tobacco and liquor at the regular prices!!
The only people who can buy anything at tax free prices are only DIPLOMATICS!
There was no clear sign for this new stupid law!
Besides, the staff who work there are very RUDE and IGNORANTS! They give a very bad idea about Jordan and Jordanians!
I do not recommend anybody going there because you won’t be able to buy anything unless you’re a diplomatic and you will be treated disrespectfully for not doing anything!

Strict Randon Entry Policy
Jan. 2021 • Solo
Degrading experience. This place wants to be the “new downtown” of Amman however they leave out a big portion of the population by not allowing males in without a female companion. If you’re a Western tourist or you speak English fluently then no problem. Now if you’re a solo male who’s a local or an Arab tourist, they will NOT let you in. It’s very discriminatory as they assume all Arab men will cause trouble in their venue. While the street is nice, it’s definitely pretentious and not really all that...if you’re a tourist, I’d recommend a more authentic experience in real downtown.

Also from my personal experience, the security personnels didn’t let me in as I was a single male. I asked for management and each gate told me the management was at a different gate...entire experience was terrible as I was walking a lot in cold weather for what? Won’t be going back again next time I’m in Amman.

Its nice walking area with shops, cafes and restaurants and a beautiful mall with lots of high end shops. It always have activities to show and share. Nice to wander around in the good weather and have a coffee, ice cream or even shisha.

Pretentious, sexist
Dec. 2019 • Business
Let’s you in only if:

- You’re accompanied by a female, a human female preferably.

- You’re driving a 70K+ JD worth car.

- You’re driving a car with a gulf country plate.

The above only applies in some seasons, which are unpredictable, unannounced, the security guard will let you know when you arrive.

The concept of making you pay entrance fee to shop in their center is simply ridiculous
Dec. 2019 • Family
Obviously you will not learn how to attract people and let go of the cast attitude you are famous for. Once more, abdali boulevard have proven that the mere concept of marketing is strange to them.
YOU are missing the point of providing entertainment to shoppers during festivities. IT IS TO ATTRACT MORE SHOPPERS. Not to charge them including their kids money to shop or dine in your outlets.
I’m shocked that shop owners agreed to allow you to charge people like that.
It really hurts to keep seeing greed and stupidity control our society. Your center was empty tonight. Did the entrance charge make you rich enough to afford loosing customers to your tenants. Try to redo the math.
What a shame.

Fascinating place
Dec. 2018 • Friends
I felt like I was in Europe.

The vibes were so lively and i liked the idea of a duty free there.

You can find variety of cafes and restaurants, beside the great facilities.

Great retailer in Amman
Nov. 2019 • Couples
We had a great experience at the coffee roaster, al hamawi in Amman. This contemporary store selling top class coffee beans, sophisticated sweets abundant nuts and so much more, welcomed us with a taste of anything we chose. Yazan Sabbah was the ideal assistant never pressuring us but guiding us here and there, taste this, try that - and we did, taking home many lovely tasty items for our families to enjoy
Amman should take note that the modern approach and beautiful items for sale, particularly bang up to date pottery and boxes set a benchmark for all other retailers. This store would not be out of place in London or New York and suggests that more shops and services would do well to look at alternatives to traditional items.

Modern Outdoor Mall... Lots of Dessert Places
Oct. 2019
It's weird. Very modern. Lots of restaurants. Even a wine bar. Lots of choices for desserts... there are at least four places to get ice-cream. There is a French restaurant, and Italian restaurant, a Taco restaurant, several coffee shops (Dimitris and Starbucks, for example). There are also some shops, but it is mostly a place to go and eat. But like the rest of Amman, it's ultimately pretty boring.
