Wild mix of people

A piece of the UK transported to Aqaba in the form of a Coronation Street pub. My husband and I sat outside and had a great night with a mix of international tourists, locals and international workers. Serves local (very good) wine.

As a Yanq, in Aqaba, I needed beef and beer. Three of us, accompanied by Jordanian Rami and Huw, Welsh divemaster, we went to Rovers. Good beer, good beef, friendly, great dessert!

Nightlife is not Aqaba's strongest points but this place provides a nice place to chill with a great view over the sea.
