The Avenues

The Avenues, one of the biggest retail centers in the world, is an example of how modernity and Arabian tradition can coexist. This district is an interpretation of the historic retail architecture of this region, built to resemble a traditional Kuwaiti Souk (market). It has a lot of twisting, tiny streets, making it easy to get lost.

It has more than 200 shops, eateries, and cafes, as well as some lovely perfume boutiques and 11 screens at the enormous Cinescape with the lovely VIP Cinema section. This modern masterpiece was constructed with an eco-friendly concept, with the sunlight falling on its floors to reflect the natural forms and components of the desert.

Things to do at The Avenue:

  • Indulge in retail therapy:

'The Jewellery' is one of the neighborhoods in the area, and the style and color of its storefronts represent the expensive items being sold inside. 

In the home furnishing zone, you'll find worldwide retailers like Ikea, Pottery Barn, The White Company, and Zara Home, some of which are making their Kuwaiti debuts.

  • SoKu is inspired by the artistic Soho neighborhood of New York:

SoKu offers an iconic urban shopping experience to appeal to Kuwait's youth, and the neighborhood is well-positioned to host top brands. A 'street smart' look and a cultural setting that encompasses everything in modern shopping are provided by Soku's edgy urban architecture.

  • To further energize the area, new cafes and restaurants are dotted around:

Going out to eat with your friends seems to be the major form of entertainment in Kuwait, and with good reason: 

Food is, after all, life. The Avenues is known for housing many of Kuwait's hippest and tastiest eateries, and recently, a few new eateries have joined the Avenues family. Here is a fun list to try:

ROTO: Are rotisserie chickens something you enjoy? You MUST try it at ROTO even if you're not because it's a completely different experience.

The Corn Brûlée and the Shish Tawook dish were particular favorites of our team.

LITTLE RUBY'S: Do you feel like some comfort food? Wholesome salads?

Yummy desserts? Check out Little Ruby's. Everyone's tastes are catered for in the recently opened restaurant!


Coffee lovers, you'll adore this. The goal of FloCafe Kuwait is to enrich your coffee experience. What sets the café apart from others is its extensive selection of delectable coffees and the atmosphere it creates from the moment you enter.


Lumiere is great if you like sweet things! It will undoubtedly leave you craving more of its delicious doughnuts. Once your sweet tooth is satisfied, you may also peruse the rest of their menu to find more choices!

  • For a fun experience, check out either Cinescape or VOX Cinemas!

The movies still have a particular allure that your house can't equal, whether it is the large screen, the people, the sound, or the food.

  • Bring out the child in you:

The Avenues features fantastic entertainment, didn't you know?

It does. Do you feel like going ice skating? Have you used VR?

Escape room riddles to be solved? Find your physical limits. Several entertaining activities for children? It's The Avenues!

KidZania is an entertainment complex that offers kids and their parents a secure, distinctive learning environment larger than 5,000 square meters.

  • Spend time in the good company of books:

If you want to relax and read your preferred book? The Avenues has some hidden locations for that, though! Bring a book, or check out one from the bookstores ThatAlSalasil or Afaaq, and spend some time alone there.

The café, situated on 2nd Avenue next to ThatAlSalasil, is the ideal hidden area for a quiet read (and delectable goodies!).

  • Staycation is a good idea to be close to luxury and entertainment:

A stay the night at The Hilton Garden Inn - Kuwait can be an option.

A pleasant staycation is ensured at the 5-star hotel, which offers a variety of delectable eateries, an outdoor pool, and a soothing spa (in addition to easy access to The Avenues).

  • The first Carrefour in Kuwait is a hypermarket with tremendous popularity among Kuwaitis:

A specific 'Kids' Zone' with clothing shops for kids can be found here, along with some of the world's most recognizable high-end designer names, like Guess Kids, Ralph Lauren Kids, Petit Bateau, Dolce & Gabbana Kids, and good ol' Mothercare.
