This rooftop is a relatively new addition to the 5-star hotel, and we’re still excited about it. The ubiquitous fireplaces, orange-hued design and dim string lights are what set the cozy tone at FIVE, making it the quintessential spot to bask in Amman’s evening breeze and city views sprung out before you. Maximize the experience with a cocktail, which they offer plenty of, your favorite shisha, and a bite from their range of menu items, from nachos to seafood. Visit FIVE on weekdays if you’re yearning for a more chill vibe, but be sure to stop by on a weekend for a more energetic atmosphere with live music.

A rooftop’s purpose is exemplified at U Lounge, and their 21st-floor views overlooking the twinkling lights of hilly Amman verify that. The yacht-inspired design, with white couches, modern fireplaces, colorful lights and even a narrow swimming pool — which you can only admire from afar at night time — establish U Lounge as the trendy spot your nightlife needs a dose of. Their international bar-food is certainly something you’ll want to try, but you'll probably be too busy dancing with your besties by your side and a tasty cocktail in your hand to DJ-spun music.

Abdali does not disappoint when it comes to nightlife, and Deck is one of the main reasons why. Overlooking Amman’s recently developed “Boulevard”, Deck is an open-space, modern rooftop that spins the hippest music, guaranteed to spark your desire to get up and dance. It’s the perfect mix of a relaxing lounge and trendy club atmosphere, thereby satisfying any contemplations you had about what tone to set for your night out. Grab a drink at the bar, maybe some shisha, and enjoy at the comfort of your table, or on the floor atop of your dancing feet.

Abdali’s back at it again with one of Amman’s most talked about new establishments — the W. Wet Deck's minimalist, yet ultra-funky design is a gorgeous outdoor spot whose aesthetic alone warrants a visit. If you and your squad take pride in privacy, then be sure to book one of their five private cabanas to comfortably lay back in. Still, go for the drinks, bar-bites and warm music at this multi-level outdoor terrace, made especially enjoying with the brisk evening winds.

Fuse old and new at District, with their modern rooftop lounge and views of antique Jabal Amman on the fourth floor of the Shepherd Hotel. Food is certainly an attraction here, where you’ll be presented with an assortment of options to chow down on, like truffle fries or many different sliders. The dim lights are turned on and live, DJ-spun music plays come sundown — though you may want to stop by for happy hour between 1 and 8 p.m. Saturdays through Thursdays for half-off drinks, and even 30% off your meal.

This Romero Group venture is another Jabal Amman favorite, and an all-round prized downtown gem. The dark brown wicker and white cushion furniture, paired with open space, warm fireplaces, city views and a range of cocktails courtesy of their bar make Loft the contemporary, trendy venue we all needed in such a historical part of town. As with all Romero Group enterprises, food is also something you won’t want to miss out on during your night out here — from light salads to fried goodies, like fish and chips, your experience at Loft is guaranteed to be an all-inclusive enjoyable one.
