5 Of The Best Things To Do In Riyadh At Night


Riyadh transforms into a dazzling playground as the sun sets. The city truly never sleeps (except on Friday mornings). So as a tourist, if you’ve explored the city during the day and still have more time to see it at night, then here are some of the best places that are just perfect for you.

1. Take In The Views Of Riyadh From High Above

There is no better spot in Riyadh to take in views of the city in all its glory than the skybridge. The view at night is the real showstopper. The vibrant city lights create a spectacle that’s nothing short of magical. And the best part? The skybridge stays open right until 11PM.

2. Let Your Eyes Feast On Visual Arts

Calling all culture vultures! The Prince Faisal bin Fahd Arts Hall is your sanctuary after dark. Originally established in 1985, this venue has undergone a recent facelift and now proudly stands as the city’s largest arts gallery. Dive into the world of visual arts and meet with the city’s buzzing artistic community.

3. Get A Hang Of The City’s Rich History

While Masmak Fort may close its doors at the early hour of 9 PM, its charm truly comes alive in the night. Bathed in warm lights, this historical gem is almost as if it were made to be explored at night.

4. Explore Riyadh’s Very-Own Times Square

If you’re in the mood for a bustling cityscape that could rival Times Square, Boulevard Riyadh City is your go-to spot. Illuminated by massive LED screens, this place shines so brightly that you can spot it from high above on flights. It’s a one-stop destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment, bringing everything you’ve ever wanted to one place.

5. Go Café Hopping

Feeling a bit peckish or in need of a caffeine pick-me-up? Worry not, as a lot of cafes in Riyadh are open 24 hours! Any time is a good time for Riyadhis to get their caffeine fix, so why not join the party?
