Cabana Beach Bar & Grill
Time Out Says
Abu Dhabi Corniche is without a doubt one of the most impressive spots in the city.
Whether you’ve lived here for years or you’re just in town for a week, you can’t fail to be blown away by the huge stretch of golden sand, towering skyscrapers and startling blue waters of the Gulf.
One of the best spots for taking in this scene is at Nation Riviera Beach Club, which offers far more than just an amazing location for a pool day.
We’re visiting the classy venue to try out Cabana Beach Bar & Grill, and as we approach the white colonial-style building, we start to realise what an unbeatable location it’s bagged.
You can choose between sitting out on the wooden terrace, or directly on the sand.
We choose the latter, knowing full well that things always seem a little bit better when you can feel sand between your toes.
The staff are super friendly, and more than happy to recommend drinks to suit your tastes.
To make the most of the scene (and to make your friends back home jealous), you probably want to get there in time for the sunset, in order to time the selfies perfectly.
If you get jealous of the people eating around you (and there’s a good chance you will, the food looks ace), we recommend going for the burger, or the avocado and brie sandwich if you want to nod towards being healthy.
We’ve got it on good authority that visiting celebrities like to hang out at this peaceful bar, but that doesn’t mean it’s pretentious or overly fancy. It is pretty special, though.
