Variety in Amman
Amman hosts a healthy assortment of bars and cafes, from seedy, male-only back alley joints to glitzy, expensive nightclubs. Jordanians (at least those who drink alcohol) possess a puzzling affinity for Russian vodka. Many of the Western-style bars and restaurants make a night on the town similar to going out in the States, save the fact that everyone is a human chimney and if you’re not inhaling a cigarette, people are offended. Or just think you’re strange.
