Entertainment & Nightlife in Kuwait
 
 
 

The sale and consumption of alcohol in Kuwait is illegal, and the penalties for breaking this law can be severe. Despite this fact, there is a black market for liquor in Kuwait City, and several affluent citizens are known to serve it to guests in the privacy of their homes. Alcohol is contraband, however, and keeping this in mind, one should respect the laws of the country and steer clear of it. Opt for tea, coffees, fruit juices and aerated drinks instead – they are a safer alternative, and are available everywhere.

While there are no nightclubs or bars, don’t let these facts lead you to believe that Kuwait City is a dull place.
There are several plush cinemas in the city, and they screen the latest international movies, but if you are looking for authentic Arabian entertainment, head to a theatre. The Kuwait Public Theatre in South Shuwaikh, for instance, hosts local cultural and folk-art performances. The oldest theatre in the city also hosts similar events – the highlight at the Kuwait Little Theatre happens to be the annual pantomime show. A third such charming venue can be found nestled at Al-Sha’ab Park, which hosts shows that the whole family is sure to enjoy. Films and quality dramas highlighting social issues, on the other hand, are hosted at the Kuwait Theatre.

If you’re more for commercial entertainment, Kuwait City will not disappoint you. Multiplexes abound here, offering the latest releases and amenities such as reclining seats and Dolby sound. The Al-Fanar Shopping Centre houses a multi-screen cinema – Al Fanar Cinema shows everything from Hollywood flicks to Arabian movies. There are also several charming drive-ins in the city. Two such venues where you can watch a movie under the starry skies happen to be the Drive-In Cinema on 6th Ring Road, and Al-Ahmadi Drive-In in the Industrial Area. For more serious viewing of documentaries and such, step into the famous IMAX Cinema located on Gulf Road.
