Sometimes, you just need to get away from it all: clear your mind, travel the world, explore a new destination, or even embrace a different culture. But who says you have to leave town to enjoy an exotic escape?
This week, Amman is teeming with events and activities that will help you break away from the tedium of daily life, transporting you to far-flung destinations and allowing you to embrace diverse cultural offerings. And best of all, there are no visas required.

Grunge Panic @Murphy’s Pub – House of Rock

Send those mid-week blues packing by rocking out to some great live music. Head to Murphy’s to watch Grunge Panic perform their crowd-rousing hits and fan favorites. The music starts at 9:00 pm, but we recommend heading over a couple hours earlier to take advantage of Happy Hour – and to find seats before the place fills up.

Take it back to Ancient Greece with an out-of-this-world Toga Party at Kegs – House of Ale. Hosted by the Expats Social Page Amman, this event is a great opportunity to meet new people, play some fantastic party games, and drink and dance like you’ve just won the Trojan War. Togas are mandatory!

Head down to Jabal Amman to watch Bilal: A New Breed of Hero at one of Subshop’s much-loved Outdoor Movie Nights.

Samsung Amman Marathon
October 28th at 6:00 a.m.
While the Samsung Amman Marathon might not transport you to some far-flung destination, seeing Downtown Amman without the traffic is a lot like visiting a new place. Whether you’re a true marathoner or you’d rather run the half-marathon or 10-kilometer fun run, you’ll get to enjoy some of the city’s most majestic sights in an entirely different light. There’s even a children’s race, so you can get the whole family involved.
Register with Run Jordan.
