If your Fridays are already reserved for lively brunches, then your Saturdays are about to get so much more chilled at Andaz Abu Dhabi.

It's easy to only think of the 5 star luxury resorts on offer in the capital, with their sandy beaches, holiday vibe and relaxing nature.

What are you doing for Brunch this weekend? We loved brunch at COYA Abu Dhab, where it wasn’t only the drinks flowing, but the food too!

Ever fancied making your very own bowl, mug or vase? Well, you can at Abu Dhabi Pottery. The cool pottery making studio has been around in the capital for years, but after seven years in the city, it was our first visit to the ceramic filled haven.

A movie, dinner brought to you at your seat, reclining chairs AND a pillow and blanket? We've found the perfect combo for the ultimate night out.
