Dr. Nasser Al Massari Museum

Saqer-Aljazirah Royal Saudi Air Force Aviation Museum

bin Salman.

Souq Al Zal

Riyadhis visit the oldest artisan market to shop for local ingredients and items, relax, and socialize with others. Nearby, you will also come across the city’s grand and historic mosque, Imam Turki Bin Abdullah. And on the other side, make a pit stop at the Masmak fort to further be whisked away to the founding days of the capital city.

Location: Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Ibrahim St., Ad Dirah Dist.


Bait Alkhawajah Restaurant

Beit Al Khawajah is a house of all things vintage in Riyadh! Its decors manage to transport you to the past, from vinyl records, radios, and pottery to the beautifully designed traditional windows, tables, and chairs.

Seventies Cafe

Back to the ’70s with Seventies Cafe! This cafe transports you to old Saudi in a heartbeat. With vintage mementos and retro pop culture decor, this cafe is a time capsule on its own; from technicolor tube TVs, transistor radios, and old music posters.

Location: Al Takhassusi St, An Nakheel Dist.


Intertwined with Souq AlZal in old Riyadh, Althumairi warrants a visit for those seeking to discover antiques and memorabilia. You’ll come across different stores, and on weekends street peddlers and public auctioneers line the sidewalks of the square.

Location: Al Thamiri St., Al Dirah
