The capital city of The United Emirates, Abu Dhabi is an island on the Pacific. Flights to Abu Dhabi will put you in the heart of a cosmopolitan atmosphere, where art, poetry, food and culture are given importance. Speaking of food and drink, the destination is known for its strong coffee, called qahwa and bars and boutiques that sell this beverage are very popular. Another ancient ritual is the sheesha cafés, where you can savor a hookah or traditional pipe to smoke flavored tobacco.
Alcohol is regulated here and you need a liquor license if you want to buy it. A simpler alternative would be one of the many bars and restaurants in the star hotels. Any number of international airlines will get you to Sax Restaurant and Club, at the Royal Meridian, Abu Dhabi. Here you can enjoy live music, international cuisine and drinks. International acts and theme weeks are popular here too. Mondays is traditionally Ladies Night and there are great drink deals in store for you.
The hotel also boasts of PJ O'Reilly's Irish Pub. It is a great place to catch up with your friends and family and enjoy a cold beer. There is live music here too and an in-house DJ who has the audience’s pulse. If there is an important match or game on, it is beamed on the large screen and the food, both the pub fare and the Friday brunch is Irish with a touch of the hotel’s own genius. Pick up your cheap airline flights and head out to the luxurious The Yacht Club. One of the city’s newest venues, it is hard to describe it except as a combination of bar, lounge and eating joint. But do dress elegantly and enjoy the view from the terrace.
Cheap flights to Abu Dhabi will give you an experience like none other at the new Ray’s Bar in Jumeriah at Etihad Towers. Because it is on the 62nd floor, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city. The bar retains an old world feel to it and has an extremely well filled wine list and an Asian themed menu. You will need those cheap tickets to Abu Dhabi to get to The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort and Spa, home to the stylish Lemon and Lime lounge bar with its classy interiors and a great view of the golf course. You can enjoy a cigar as you enjoy a dink of your choice- wine, fine malts, juices or cocktails. You can also taste very contemporary food from seafood to desserts here.
If you love sports, head to the Stars n’ Bars where it is all about the game. There are many plasma screens, bar games and fabulous food along with friendly staff to make the whole experience even better. Or go to Hickory’s Sports Bar, on Yas Links Golf Club for some classy sport viewing.
