From nights out with a hip vibe, to more relaxed, chilled cocktail bars, Abu Dhabi has something for everyone to do after dark. Be aware: dress codes vary but shorts for men usually are a no-no after 9pm.
McGettigan’s offers a warm, welcoming spirit, a lively atmosphere and a vast array of imported beers and Irish whiskeys. The food menu features a host of fresh flavours and tantalizing dishes and along with signature dishes including succulent steaks, fish and chips with mushy peas and tartar sauce, bangers and colcannon mash with onion gravy and fried leeks. They offer one of the only traditional full Irish breakfasts in Abu Dhabi and their carvery meals are unrivalled. The lively bar is known for its top-class entertainment and value-for-money promotions including a quiz night, a weekly ladies night every Tuesday and a fabulous brunch on Fridays. Guests can soak up an eclectic mix of talented bands and musicians from Irish folk and indie bands to international hit makers. If you love sport, you’ll not find a better atmosphere for all the big games. With a real community feel, great food and drinks, this is hands down one of the best pubs in the city.
