New Must-Visit Outdoor Lounges in 2018


It is the perfect weather to enjoy the outdoor terraces. Looking for an inviting space to gather with friends and enjoy great food, drinks and shisha? Read on further about two new must-visit lounges in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  

Abu Dhabi – Al Nourfa in Beach Rotana


Enjoy an evening relaxing in their outdoor living room. The best part is their lush fountain centerpiece which inspires the name and vision of the lounge. Their furniture was handpicked and shipped exclusively from Spain and I especially loved the small Arabic décor items they used to decorate the paths and the tables. They offer a small and simple menu covering a range of cuisines – from Arabic, to Japanese and international. Share-able dishes were the main features of the menu – we were able to get a taste of their Arabic mezzes, and they also have an amazing avocado baba ghanoush! You can also find sushi or sliders available for sharing on their menu. You can opt for different shisha options as well. The lounge overlooks the beach which offers guests a quiet and relaxing ambience to their day. This lounge is open daily starting at 10:30am to 12:30am, also a great option for breakfast!

Must try dishes: Toasted pumpkin and tahini puree, Spiced Potatoes, Manakish, Kunafa

Dubai – Fumo by Rosso Lounge in Amwaj Rotana

Only opened a few months ago, this lovely lounge is situated in one of the best locations, steps from JBR. They extend their theme and ambience from Rosso, a romantic Italian restaurant. However, at Fumo, you can find cosy and inviting lounge furniture where you can feel comfortable in for hours. They feature smaller tables among your group so that you could have intimate conversations. Menu features shareable small plates ranging from mezzes to sushi rolls. They have an extensive selection of shisha options – did you know you can also add fresh orange or pineapple to enhance your experience?

Must try dishes: Avocado Baba Ghanoush, Grand Tasting Sushi Platter (featuring sushi sashimi and maki), Land and Sea Mixed Grill, Chocolate Lava Cake
