Rainbow street is a long strip that offers many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars in the heart of Amman. Some of the F&B venues offer stunning views over Jabal Amman and Downtown. Downside is that it is a very crowded area on weekends and can be quite noisy and crowded. I would personally recommend visitors check it out in the... More

Great place to escape the hectic downtown area 10 minutes down the hill. There are various bars, restaurants and shops around. Some bars, like Books@café and Wild Jordan, have good views off the city.

Not really a destination, so much as a good street to walk along and duck into a few shops. If were an actual tourist destination, he city need to better pick up street rubbish and make a bit more presentable. Not flashy, just pull the weeds and fix the footpath. The street was quiet on Friday midday, but Saturday night... More

We have been to Rainbow Street several times. We love the atmosphere and all the different kinds of restaurants and shops there. There are foreign restaurants like the Armenian one we ate at, and fun bars and restaurants like the one we had a drink at yesterday which had a VW bus hanging from the roof! There are crepes, and...

I was expecting it to be like Rodeo Drive in LA, but this is just a one long single street with shops around it, nothing extra ordinary about it. There are some local streets in some countries which give you an extra ordinary feeling like for example the area around the Blue Mosque in Istanbul gives you a turkish feeling,... More

For me during the day it was really nothing special. But we also went there in the evening on weekend and after the best falafel at Al-Quds, we bought some tea on the street, sat down next to the locals who were playing nice music and enjoyed in such a good atmosphere. It was nice :)

The Rainbow street is on the Amman mountain, it's high so it's a bit cold there, make sure to bring a Jacket. There are alot of good restaurants, it's not expensive relatively. I went with relatives to a restaurant there names Views, really enjoyed the food. The view of the restaurant is incredible, you can see all Jordan and the... More

Before I got to Amman, my research suggested that I must spend every evening at Rainbow Street for it's restaurants, bars, people watching etc. But frankly, I was rather disappointed. There are lots of choices for food and drink but it just did not have the personality I was expecting it to. Perhaps it was the frigid weather or just... More
