Time Out Says

While seafood restaurant Catch is the place for beautifully crafted fish dishes, head upstairs to Catch Rooftop and you’ll find
a totally different type of vibe.

This is the perfect late-night bar. It’s talked about a lot in Abu Dhabi and with very good reason. If you’ve planned a big night out, make sure you save this for your final destination.

On the water in the heart of the Corniche and boasting a, yes you guessed it, cooler than cool rooftop terrace, the views over the gulf and bright lights of the city are simply stunning.

Whether you arrive to watch the sunset or turn up past midnight, this is basically the dream setting to enjoy a mixed drink or light bar snack, of which the selection is huge and reasonably priced.

It has an upmarket feel to it without seeming pretentious. The interior is simple and classy, with room for dancing but also plenty of comfy corners to relax in when your feet are totally worn out.

However, you’ll resent ever having to leave the dance floor as the party vibe is constantly fuelled by brilliant DJs.

On our visit the bar was almost deserted at 10pm, but our disappointment didn’t last long. By midnight it was as crowded and lively as we were hoping for.

The Vibes and Views ladies’ night is particularly popular and appropriately named to say the least. With three free complimentary drinks for ladies every Tuesday, it’s always guaranteed to draw a crowd.

Canadian Hip Hop artist Drake was allegedly such a huge fan of Catch Rooftop that he went here for three nights in a row when visiting our sensational city. What further endorsement do you need?

The bottom line
Great views, vibes and tunes. No catches.
