Off The Record

Amman-City Centre

May 11, 2018

A sparkling speakeasy set in a popular hotel, Off The Record offers guests a trip back in time and a place to unwind after a busy day in the city.

In a city known for showing visitors a mix of both modern and ancient, Amman’s latest hotspot is also offering a taste of two eras. Indeed, Off The Record is blending modern mixology techniques with a speakeasy vibe to take all who enter their doors on a trip back in time while also showing them one of the best times in the capital. 
Whether you spend your days in Jordan floating in the Dead Sea, seeing the ancient lost city of Petra, or exploring the natural wonders of Wadi Rum, you are bound to be thirsty come evening, and that’s where Off The Record comes in. Located inside the popular Red Rose Hotel in Um Uthaina (one of Amman’s hippest districts), Off The Record is a plush place to put your feet up and have a drink, and the good times start rolling when you walk in the door. 
Decor at Off The Record includes marble fittings, gilded chandeliers, and leather seating which all greet you upon entering, in addition to a smile from a bartender suited up in the most classic of tuxedos. Speaking of classics, the staff is trained in all of them (think martinis, old fashioneds, and moscow mules), but they are also masters of up-to-the-minute cocktails, so feel free to be creative with your order.  Bottom line: we’re on the record that this is one of the best bars in Amman.
