Now, since I visited quite a few places this summer and wanted to compile a list before it is too cold to enjoy these, so here are the top places where you can sit outside, enjoy a drink and some bites, be it on a roof top or a nice terrace in Amman, Jordan. Listing is in alphabetical order. For more information on each place, click the picture or the link. Cheers and Sahteen!

Black Iris Rooftop

offers a 270 degree view over Amman from 6th circle. Food and drinks are delicious and they have some really special fusion cuisine and cocktails that you should try. Situated on top of the Crown Plaza Hotel, this is the highest spot around 6th circle. During the summer you can enjoy a magnificent view from the terrace.

Black Iris Bar


is a great spot near Jabal Amman, where you can hangout, enjoy drinks and food alike. They have an artistic atmosphere and cool lighting. Food was great and they organize events with DJs from time to time.

District – Sign

Eostrix Gastro Pub

might have a weird name and not the most astonishing view, but likely the best food in town. You need to taste their delicious creations which are from another planet. The various seating options including the terrace will make your dinner a great enjoyment. Staff was super friendly and the bar offers anything you can wish.

High Garden Rooftop

is one of the few spots near 4/5th circle, Wadi Saqra, and Shmesani. Centrally located, offering a great relaxed environment as well as drinks, food and breakfast from 10 AM. Recently the name was changed to Garden Rooftop, but it is still the same place under same management and really nice up there.

Iguana Rooftop

Rooftop is your spot located right at Abdali Boulevard. A great selection of drinks combined with DJ Tunes and a nice view, make this a great spot. Again, the food was delicious and the bar is just awesome. Early evenings you can enjoy some chilled electronic tunes, while later it might get a bit louder…

It is the only location where you can try all their different wines, from all prices ranges and all types. Whether you like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Rosé, you will find your wine to enjoy. From time to time they organize art events, Wine Crawls through the city or tours to the Mafraq Plateau, so make sure to check their website.

is one of my all-time favorites when it gets to relaxed atmosphere and having some beers with friends, be it in Summer or in Winter! Many different beers are on tap, good bar food available and people and staff are great.

Rustic Main Terrace

U Roof Lounge

gets my award for the best view over Amman and the food is pretty delicious, too! They have offers to enjoy the pool during the day, have plenty of events on weekends with either DJs or live music. It is probably the rooftop located at the highest altitude, so an excellent spot to enjoy the sunset and chill on their sofas while enjoying some tunes, drinks and bites.

Sunset from U Roof Lounge


has a great food menu, be it for Burgers, Keto or some more unique items such as their cheese fondue or seadfood salads. The always have great offers for both, food and drinks, have a huge terrace and it is one of the few places in Amman that provides drinks and Argeela at the same time.
