Time Out Abu Dhabi's pre-Restaurant Awards party

Join the team and nominees at Stars 'N' Bars on November 28

The Knowledge

We love great food here at Time Out Abu Dhabi – and we will never turn our noses up at a top night out either (and we know you feel the same way, too).

So it just made sense to celebrate the launch of this year’s Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards with a big, blowout party, and we know just the place.

For the first time ever we are bringing together the cream of the city’s culinary crop and you, our readers (and we are inviting ourselves along, too), for a brilliant pre-awards bash at buzzing Yas Island venue, Stars ’N’ Bars.
Get ready to let your hair down and dance the night away as the countdown to the prestigious awards ceremony at Rosewood Abu Dhabi gathers pace.

The Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards Nominees Party, which is being held on Tuesday, November 28, is a chance for you to meet the people behind the city’s bars and restaurants and help celebrate their achievements in being nominated for our prestigious restaurant awards.

Get set for hours of live music, drink deals, food, games, prize giveaways and a whole lot more.

Everyone who comes along will get three drinks free between 7pm and 9pm, courtesy of the team at the sports bar.

There will be brilliant live entertainment to keep the party in full swing from DJ Mateo Paz and master musician Adam Baluch, who has proved a massive hit on the UAE music scene in recent years.

The classically trained performer seamlessly blends a wide range of musical styles and is a dab hand at a host of instruments, too, including the guitar and keyboards, and he can even blow a mean trumpet.

Baluch has performed his soulful one-man music show across the UAE and all over Europe and Australia and has supported mega stars such as Ed Sheeran, Lionel Ritchie, Kaiser Chiefs and Richard Ashcroft in concert.

It looks set to be an evening to remember, and we just can’t wait.

Paul Clifford, Editor of Time Out Abu Dhabi, says: “This is a great chance to celebrate the people who make the Abu Dhabi dining scene so special: from the talented chefs who prepare the food we all enjoy to our loyal readers and through to the customers who continue to support restaurants in the city so passionately.

“Stars ‘N’ Bars is an ideal spot for us all to have a great time and get to know each other a little better before we get down to the very serious business of the awards night in December.”
