We are located in the culturally vibrant and historically significant neighbourhood of Jebel Al-Weibdeh, home to many of Amman’s stories, urban landmarks and cultural centers. The building itself, dating from the mid-1950s, used to house the Select hotel (1975) and Negresco bar. The current ownership purchased the building in 2013 and began extensive renovations. In July 2015, Maestro Music Bar & Restaurant officially opened. Nestled on both sides of the building, Maestro shares the structure with La Locanda boutique hotel; a venue dedicated to creating an atmosphere of warm hospitality inspired by the stars of Arabic music’s golden era.
At Maestro, we look forward to becoming a platform that supports live performances and the production of authentic music in Amman, from Jazz and classical Arabic to folk and experimental genres. Our program features weekly concerts and jam sessions by an eclectic lineup of local, regional and international artists.
Maestro presents a one-of-a-kind drinks list with refreshing aperitifs and classic cocktails that will soothe you into the night. Our rich menu of local and world dishes is here to tickle your taste buds as you drink, dance and enjoy the company of your friends.
Our brand has been developed specifically to represent our ethos: culture, music and warmth! Inspired by elements from the intricate universe of Jazz—dancing notes on a music sheet, swaying motions of performers, piping paths of brass instruments and legendary signage adorning the entrances of bars and lounges—our brand pays tribute to that iconic time, but further extends itself into the musical world we are trying to create today.
Enjoy your time with us.
