Abu Dhabi is as rich in nightlife as it is in everything else.
The busiest bar and club nights in Abu Dhabi are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Outside of Ramadan and religious holidays, the bars usually serve between noon and 1am. Night clubs open at 8pm and close in the early hours.
Ladies’ nights are very popular in the Emirates, with women offered free wine at many venues.
If live music’s your thing, you won’t be disappointed. You’ll find everything from pop duos to rock bands to jazz sessions to salsa nights. Top venues compete for the hottest DJs – so get there early or be ready to queue.
Abu Dhabi has bars and clubs to suit every taste – from the American sports bars with large TVs showing baseball and football games, to authentic British pubs, like The Tavern at Sheraton Abu Dhabi, an old-nautical-style ale pub with brick walls and barrel bar tables.
The Skylite Rooftop Lounge on the 9th floor of the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi is a must-see, with its blue-and-lilac-tinted light canopy and balcony overlooking the Formula 1 circuit.
Or try Ray’s Bar, a chic cocktail bar on Level 62 of Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, with stunning views of the city.
If you’re a fan of ‘Great Gatsby’ glamor then the Cristal Cigar and Champagne Bar at Millennium Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi is just right for you. Sip old-fashioned cocktails while listening to the jazz piano.
You don’t need to go far for an amazing bar in Abu Dhabi to party the night away.
