Must see · Shopping Mall · Shopping
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).

  • A fabulous shopping mall for visiting with families and friends. It's overcrowded a bit though. The food is nice, lots of restaurants.  more »
  • The best Mall in Kuwait and probably in the Gulf. The variety of outlets including the latest addition which is the Hotel accommodation has enriched the experience to be at the avenues. I consider it to be a small city within the city as you can spend the whole day with friends, family and kids and wouldn't feel bored. It is so vast that you can spend hours walking around experiencing new and existing brands. There are ample parking spaces and you feel comfortable and safe in that environment.
  • The Avenues is one awesome destination for family or friends or for self. It has everything! Every famous brand of shop you can think of will be found here. The interior is amazing. The entire structure is divided into four phase. The phase 1, or the first avenues contains ikea, a cinema theatre, Pottery barn and many other. Then there is the phase 2, grand avenues, the garden and many many things to explore and take a very good picture. If you are in Kuwait, Avenues is a must see. It is one of the finest shopping destination I have visited.
