The Avenues, Kuwait City

4.6
The biggest shopping mall in the country and a favorite leisure destination for tourists and locals alike, The Avenues houses over 800 shops, including a vast selection of luxury brands. The interior features six thematic sections drawing inspiration from the surrounding dessert--blue skies and the sun on the one hand, and European and local storefronts on the other hand. The glass roof lets in natural light, which gives you the feel of an open-air space, while protecting you from the heat and the scorching sun. Be sure to check out art exhibits and trendy restaurants in SoKu, which is the section of the mall designed for hip teenagers and youngsters (that's clearly inspired by New York City's SoHo neighborhood). Put The Avenues on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kuwait City travel itinerary planner.

  • Probably one of the best malls in the world not just in Kuwait. A very huge mall with almost everything you need. You can find various shopping stores for all ages and luxury brands, So many restaurants from different cuisines, fast foods and cafes options. It has also to 2 Different Cinema theatres. Indoor amusement park for kids is available. Definitely a must visit place in Kuwait.
  • Nice place when not crowded. Best time early during the day. Good to have a walk specially during the crazy summer, have a bite, do some shopping. On the other hand, it feels like a casino. Designed in a maze-i way, one could easily get lost; as a result, would spend more time, which means spending more money.
  • Oh how I wish to visit this place again. You could spend an entire day at The Avenues and still not complete exploring it's entirety. I've been visiting the mall years ago while it was still under development. Every 2-3 months visit and I see a new section open up. There are a variety of shops, pretty much an all-purpose shopper would want. I'm pretty sure there may or may not be better around around the globe, but since this has been the only grand mall I've visited, it stands first on my list.
  • Nice large shopping area with huge varieties of clothes, food, entertainment. The enticing smell of popcorn. The well dressed gentlemen offering a whiff of sample perfume for those passing by. Shops with mannequins wearing the latest fashion and others with attractive sales. There was even a shop with bedroom furniture, beds etc that looked so nice! There are well placed cafes and Starbucks at regular intervals- so that the shoppers don't tire and keep going. The story of the Avenues goes on and on...
  • Must be visited. High brands and middle level brands are available.. IKIA shop is their.. Restaurants with different cuisine are there, coffee shops and chocolate stores are available. Suitable for families, couples and friends gathering.. Loved it, needs 2 or 3 times visiting..
