Abu Dhabi Travel Guide

Abu Dhabi Nightlife

While quieter than Dubai, Abu Dhabi has a very festive nightlife; most of the bars and clubs located in the city''s upmarket hotels, which are allowed to serve alcohol under UAE law. The nightlife only really kicks off at around 11pm; many venues have a strict dress code to adhere to but an otherwise relaxed and safe atmosphere to enjoy. There are a number of English, Mexican and American-style bars and pubs in Abu Dhabi; some of the most popular including the Harvester''s Pub at Sands Hotel, the Jazz Bar at Hemingway''s and the Irish pub at the Abu Dhabi Grand. Live performances, happy hour, ladies nights and quiz evenings are regular events in Abu Dhabi bars. The local nightclubs feature international and local DJs, as well as live performances from Arab singers and belly dancers. Exotic cocktails, vintage brandies and Arabic mezzes (snacks) are also offered by most venues. Popular Abu Dhabi nightclubs include Le Meridien''s Gauloises Club, and the Tequilana Discotheque at the Hemingway''s complex.
