The poolside bar at Hilton Capital Grand
  • 1

Time Out Says

Just a short walk from Zayed Sports City and located equal distances from Yas Island and downtown Abu Dhabi, the Hilton Capital Grand is right in the middle of everything.

This obviously works to the hotel’s advantage, but we’re still quite suprised to see that the hotel’s poolside bar, Noche,
is so busy when we visit early on a Thursday evening.

Like us, many of the guests have clearly headed here straight from work to start their weekend as early as possible.
There are loads of sofas outside near the pool, and a big indoor area with a wide bar.

Noche specialises in Latin American dishes, and this theme is continued into the décor with bright yellow cushions scattered over the leather booths, and a big symbol of a sun up on the wall.

There are also platters of Arabian mezze, but today we’re simply in search of a refreshing beverage.

We start off by asking our server if there are any deals or offers on. She looks confused and wonders off to check, and it’s a while before someone else comes over and tells us it’s just hops that are on offer today.

A tad disappointed, we eventually settle on our drinks.

It’s not the cheapest of rounds we’ve ever bought in the capital, but we feel that the pleasant setting justifies the price.

It describes itself as a ‘chill-out lounge’ and it’s certainly a nice place to relax in after a busy day. With so many people chatting happily around us, there’s an upbeat atmosphere that makes us feel very content with life.

We leave in a very good mood.
