What visitors say about Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre

On the one hand this is an events hall for concersts and musicals and they show a lot of major orchestras and local and international artists. On the other hand there is a whole area with restaurants and a fountain with a water and light show. The light show is amazing during sunset and you can see it while having dinner. A small park is attached as well. The architecture of both places is amazing and it is an insta-worthy place for sure. What is annoying about this place is that you can only access any of the venues through the park garage and that you are not supposed to walk from your dinner restaurant to your concert. You are supposed to drive there for one minute and find another parking spot in the next garage.
