The Rumman Collective – The Best Artspace in Amman


Smack Dab in the middle of Jabal Amman you can find a 100% underrated/Hidden treasure  – a beautifully restored building surrounded by lush fig and pomegranate trees, and some of the best cafe drinks you’ll find in Amman.

If you haven’t guessed yet, we are talking about Rumman Collective

So there’s two options when it comes to seating, inside the restaurant – which is absolutely amazing with the cultural pieces & handmade selection of the cutest little figurines – or choose the terrace, where you’ll feel a out-of-body experience (ok, maybe not that amazing) surrounded by flowers, predominantly purple as that’s the color palette for the whole restaurant, which really adds character. We really recommend it if it’s not too busy.

There is a small shop adjacent to the restaurant that you should check out as well, it showcases a selection of unique local handmade products, all made by Jordanian seamstress, Tetas basically. From intricately crafted cultural pieces to charming plant holders, each item is something you need in your living room (or at least that’s what I tell myself).

So, if you find yourself in Amman, make sure to pay a visit to this hidden gem. Whether you’re a local looking for a new favorite spot or a traveler seeking an authentic taste of Jordanian hospitality, this place is a must-visit destination.
