BLVD RUH City, the gem of Riyadh Season, is now open

This is the largest zone of the Riyadh Season, made up of nine different areas…

If there’s one place that you need to choose this Riyadh Season, make it the Boulevard Riyadh City (BLVD RUH City), located north of Riyadh. Don’t get it confused with The Boulevard Riyadh, though.

One of the largest zones in Riyadh Season 2021, BLVD RUH City has tripled its size and will become a permanent entertainment hub in the capital.

The areas of BLVD RUH City

The BLVD RUH City zone covers about 900,000 square meters and contains nine areas, each with its own set of events.

The areas include restaurants and cafes, gardens, international game centres, festivals and stores that cater to all age groups.

A particular highlight is the largest Muvi Cinemas in the Kingdom, equipped with 25 high-quality screens and covers around 22,280 square meters.

BLVD RUH City zone’s special features also include an electric car circuit, four theatres for concerts and shows, and 8,000 square meters of electronic screens.

In addition, the zone has a golf course, 12 paddle tennis courts, a global multi-use arena, a skating rink, a children’s area comprising 500 electronic games, and more than 20,000 parking spaces.


Here’s a quick guide to the nine different areas within BLVD RUH City.

Boulevard Riyadh City Square

Stand in the middle of this area, and you’ll realise that Times Square in New York is the inspiration behind this set-up. It is adorned with giant screens and features more than 102 stores.


It features a music academy, a platform for live performances, three stores selling musical instruments, shops selling perfumes, accessories, and clothing, and eight restaurants. Not to be missed is the Darb Al-Zalaq restaurant and museum. There are also two theatres – the Mohammed Al-Ali Theatre and Bakr Al-Shaddi Theatre, where the Salam Murabaa Play, a social satire production, is staged until November 6.

Salam Murabaa Play


Offering live and theatrical performances, the Studio area includes six theatres, restaurants and cafes.


The Sports area hosts several sports and entertainment activities. Fans of Riyadh’s most popular Al-Hilal and Al-Nasr football clubs should relax and unwind at their respective themed cafes.


For more entertainment activities, check out the Trocadero area, which is inspired by the design of Coventry Street in London.


Located next to the Trocadero area, the lush Garden area features 27 local and international restaurants.


This is one of the most important landmarks of BLVD RUH City. Be enthralled by the different displays of laser lights, colours, and music synchronised with the fountain show.


One of our favourites is the Avalanche area. It comprises a snow dome with an indoor skating rink and offers fun winter activities.


This area includes the Mohammed Abdo Arena with 18,000 seats and the 7,000-seater Abu Bakr Salem Theater.
