Time Out Says

I t’s fair to say we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to amazing sundowner spots in Abu Dhabi, but we’re always happy to hear when a new rooftop terrace comes along to take the game to new heights.

Step forward the recently relaunched Level Lounge. Perched atop the Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi, this rebranded urban bar and lounge has had a bit of a facelift.

Touches of graffiti give the place a splash of colour, while there’s a really stripped-back vibe to the décor, which make its a perfect spot for poolside relaxing.

The big swimming pool is the main feature of what is a relatively small floor space.

A small bar at the far end of the lounge is where the staff work their magic on a wide selection of mixed drinks and refreshing beverages, as well as a delicious selection of bar bites. You may have read us waxing lyrical about the Level Waffle with prawns and guacamole. The top food means you won’t go hungry here.

On our visit, we’re struck by the beautiful sunset which envelopes the open-air 21st floor lounge.

The service is friendly, but staff can be a tad ponderous, and the prices won’t break the bank.There are happy hour specials available from 5pm until 8pm every day, too.

Let’s be clear, though. This is not the sort of place you would gather a rowdy group of friends and wildly dance the night away.
It would look crowded with more than 30 people in, meaning it’s perhaps too small to be anything other than a poolside chill spot or a bar for hotel guests.

Size doesn’t really matter at Level Lounge. Make a beeline here if you fancy a laid-back evening with stunning views.

The bottom line
A place to relax and watch the sun set.
