Some things go together perfectly.
Salt and pepper, fish and chips, and, of course, cheese and grape.
Here in Abu Dhabi, there are lots of nights dedicated to this beautiful union.
So if you want to indulge on endless crackers with cheese both oozy and hard along with glasses of grape, then these are the nights you don’t want to miss.
This classy restaurant at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers is a perfect place for settling down to enjoy a feast of Italian food. On Thursdays, just in time to start the weekend, a brand new cheese and grape night has launched and we’re all ears. Head along from 7pm to 9pm and you can enjoy some specially created cheese and cold cut platters served to your table and unlimited glasses of grape from the roaming grape trolley for Dhs195 per person. We hope there are plenty of Italian cheeses on offer, especially some gorgonzola.
Dhs195. Thu 7pm-9pm. Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Corniche West (02 811 5666).
La Cava and the 7 ate 9 promotion is a Time Out favourite. Head along to the basement venue at Rosewood Abu Dhabi on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and you can enjoy unlimited cheese and grape. Due to new safety measures, the cheese is served directly to your table along with your choice of 15 paired glasses of grape. Plus there are cold cuts, chutneys, bread, crackers and all the accompaniments you could dream of for a proper cheese feast. You can enjoy two hours of unlimited wine and cheese for Dhs195 per person and can add additional hours for Dhs80. We can’t tell you how much cheese we’ve eaten here over the years but what we can tell you is that we don’t regret a thing.

There’s a lot to love about this stylish bar and restaurant and we need few excuses to visit. Word to the wise, when arriving come through the hotel so you can enter through the dimly-lit passageway flanked with barrels, it’s just more fun. Head to The Warehouse any day of the week and you can feast on cheese and grape. From 4pm till closing each day you can enjoy a selected cheese and grape pairing package that’s served along with cold cuts and a few accompaniments, too, for Dhs140 per person.
