Time Out Quick Guides: The best indoor bars in Abu Dhabi

The places to head if you want a cool night out over the summer

During the summer in Abu Dhabi, it’s pretty hard to do anything outdoors for too long.

Sure, it’s possible – as long as you want to be dripping with sweat and in need of rehydration every few minutes – but it’s tough.

Never, fear, there are still plenty of things to do and places to be.

And if you’re up for a night out, we’re here to help.

Loads of Abu Dhabi’s nightspots have incredible terraces and rooftop views, but there are lots of cool and cosy underground venues, too, and just because you can’t go outside, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on having fun.

So, to help ease you through what remains of the summer, here’s our pick of the best indoor bars in the city – from incredible views at Stratos to the underground cellar at La Cava.

All you need to do is take your pick, get your mates together and put a date in the diary.

See you at the bar.
