Cafe in Amman

You may need to keep your sunglasses on when you enter this establishment – the retro floral walls in psychedelic colours are a fun throwback to the '70s. This is typical modern Jordanian coffeehouse chic, and the tasty global food is far less interesting than the hip young Jordanians lounging on sofas in corners or typing furiously on their laptops.

Alcohol is served, and Thursday nights is one of Amman's rare openly gay-friendly scenes.
