Top Tips

The vast majority of Abu Dhabi's rooftop bars (and restaurant outdoor areas) aren't open during the long hot summers, when partying, eating, socialising and drinking is a strictly inside-with-the-air-conditioning-on activity. Unless it's a hotel pool-bar, don't expect to be sipping cocktails on an outdoor terrace between May and mid-September. If you were only heading to a venue for its outdoor area, check that you'll be happy hanging out in its indoor space instead.
