Much like its neighbour Dubai, most of Abu Dhabi's best night spots are centred around hotels, so it might seem the city's evening entertainment is quite limited, but actually, Abu Dhabi has an excellent night life. From rooftop bars to charming Middle Eastern venues, there's a whole range of places to spend the evening. Traveasy offers cheap ticket to Abu Dhabi from UK , so you can come and explore the nightlife for yourself. We have listed a few of the city's best night venues below.
