Ever fancied being on a game show? Well, one of Abu Dhabi's most fun bars has launched a weekly event that gives you the chance to do just that. 

Viewz, on the 17th floor of the Cristal Hotel, is holding the Asylum game show every Tuesday night. 

Hosted by one of Abu Dhabi's most popular DJ's Sugarfed and presenter Sugie Reaves (who hosts the brilliant, award-winning Funch brunch at Stars 'N' Bars), there tests of physical and mental strength throughout the evening. 

Think of a normal pub quiz then turn it up to 11. As well as the usual rounds of questions, there are special rounds inbetween that give contestants the chance to increase their points. 

One round might involve diving into a ball-filled bathtub and trying to find the one 'special' ball that's hidden inside, or you might get to play one of the games on a giant interactive screen. 

You could also be asked to take on one of your rivals in a silly game, such as "chilli pepper roulette". 

It's only been running for a couple of weeks, but if the first events are anything to go by, it's already a rip-roaring success, and there are plans to introduce new, big games and even bigger prizes. 

The show starts at 8pm every week and prizes currently include things such as drinks for your table to free brunches for the victorious contestants. 

It's just one of a number of fun events the bar holds every week. Other highlights include a ladies' night that included a free mixed drink masterclass for groups of friends, regular live music and karaoke evenings and a Britpop night with a Robbie Williams tribute act. 

Free. Tue 8pm, ongoing. Viewz, Cristal Hotel, Zayed the First Street (050 615 1064).
