The luxury dining and shopping destination will include internationally renowned restaurants including Gymkhana and Les Deux Magots, exclusive cinema experiences, a selection of premium retailers, alongside the Kingdom's first St Regis Hotel.

Built to acknowledge traditional Saudi architecture, with a modern and contemporary lift, Via Riyadh takes significant inspiration from the Salmani design style.

But, which restaurants and cafes you ask? Let's take a look.


Les Deux Magots

From Saint-Germain to Saudi, Les Deux Magots brings a quintessential taste of Paris to Riyadh.

An elevated cafe experience not to be missed: indulge in the Les Deux Magots classic, rich, thick Chocolat Chaud drinking chocolate, alongside a buttery, swirled croissant or a croque-monsieur.
