Al Muthana Shopping Complex
Al Muthana is one of the older malls and is not as trendy as other malls in Kuwait. Built on three levels, its outlets sell everything including souvenirs, shoes, clothes, opticians, luggage, white goods and pets. The selection of shops is more than satisfactory and you can find most things that you need. Kuwait Bookstore is located on the ground floor and has a good stock of international magazines and an extensive selection of books. There are not many restaurants and coffee shops in the mall itself, but there are several restaurants located in the building next door.
Al Othman Center
Located in Hawally, the Al Othman Center is a three-level shopping mall with individual shops. One of the outlets particularly worth visiting is Triumph, which sells an excellent range of evening wear and accessories. Other favourites include Clarks, Birkenstock, Sock Shop and Kiko Fashion.
Arraya Shopping Mall
Arraya shopping mall consists of three levels and targets the high end of the market. The Centre has many designer shops including Burberry, Giordano, Furla, Damas Jewellery, Gerry Weber, Charles Jourdan and more. Parking is easy in the two-storey carpark located next to the mall and accessible via a pedestrian bridge. The complex also has several small but attractive coffee shops including Richoux, Cafe Supreme, Waterlemon, Haagen-Dazs and Burger Boutique. This meticulously designed mall is a credit to the modern architecture of Kuwait, placing it at the forefront of the country’s luxury market. In addition to the shopping mall the centre also houses a grand ballroom, a spacious outside plaza and the exquisite Courtyard Marriott Hotel. The shopping malls three floors have nine public accesses for convenience and are connected to the car park via air-conditioned fly-over bridges.
City Center Salmiyah
The City Center Salmiyah is more commonly known as Souk Salmiyah as it more of a souk than a mall. The ground floor has that feeling of a souk with many small shops selling various things such as clothes, handbags, perfume, crockery and cutlery, toys and shoes. A large portion of the mall houses the huge City Center supermarket which includes a magazine/stationery shop. On the first floor is a foodcourt and a Chinese restaurant. Behind the complex is the Fish and Meat Market if you want to pop over to get something for dinner.
City Center Shuweikh
City Center Shuweikh, located just outside the city, is more of a huge department store than a mall. Its range is adequate and is a little cheaper than some of the other supermarkets and stores. A good place to go if you want to buy in bulk or get cheaper clothes. On the top level there is a Little Caesars pizzeria and a small amusement area for kids.
