Nightlife Entertainment in Abu Dhabi

Who doesn’t like to wind down after dinner with a drink or two of choice? While it may be socially acceptable everywhere else, Abu Dhabi is different. The Islamic city is strict with its laws on liquor consumption, but that shouldn’t dampen your spirits. The nightlife entertainment is still very active in the capital of the UAE. Here are a few ways you can enjoy the city after sunset without worrying about the strict city rules.

Camp in the Desert

You may have heard of evening desert safaris and dune bashing, but have you heard of camping in the desert? The concept is highly popular and romantic among couples and outdoor enthusiasts. Experience the cool temperatures in the middle of the desert and watch the tanoura dance, belly dance and stars as you dine and enjoy. It's breathtaking!

Delicious Dining & Cruises

Ditch the boring night out dining at local restaurants and instead head out to a dhow dinner cruise. You can enjoy the views of the Arabian Gulf while you sip on traditional Arab drinks and munch on local and international dishes. While it doesn't compare to a luxury yacht, it is more old-school and romantic. Give it a try with your partner for the best night out!

Popular City Events

Nightclubs may be different in Abu Dhabi compared to the ones you might find in Prague or Mexico City. But one thing you will find everywhere else is that checking city events is a good way to find out what's happening in the nightlife scene in Abu Dhabi. There are live music shows and concerts happening all the time!

Walking by the beach during sunset or enjoying moonlit walks is incredibly special. Additionally, at night, gazing at the city's high-rise buildings and the Emirates Palace hotel is a visual delight. Have you ever taken a kayaking trip that was quiet and peaceful in the middle of Abu Dhabi? The Eastern Mangroves are a great way to enjoy nature at the Mangrove National Park while having a picnic under the stars. If you are feeling extra adventurous, then head to kayaking near the Louvre for an unforgettable trip.

A Stroll on Corniche

Although not as popular as a nightclub, the Corniche is still a tourist hotspot for anyone who enjoys quiet walks during the sunset. Lined with trees, parks and a full frontal view of the sea, the serene atmosphere is almost hypnotic. Spend your evenings walking up and down the Corniche to get your steps in and breathe in the fresh sea breeze.
