No prizes for guessing what the chief appeal of this place is. A seven piece jazz band is the main draw at this popular jazz club, at the Hilton Abu Dhabi hotel. It’s a stylish, elegant space with lots of black leather seating and a curving chrome counter arranged around a small stage area. So grab a table or pull up a stool and relax as you listen to a series of smooth jazz tunes. There’s a good range of expertly mixed cocktails to choose from as well as a decent choice of wines and spirits, and an international food menu (Caesar salad, fish and chips, a house burger). Cocktails take their name from jazz standards and include the Summer Time, a mix of dry gin, peach schnapps and champagne, and the Smooth Operator, a blend of scotch, drambuie, bailey’s and amaretto. The potent yet floral Come Fly with Me is a mix of rums, apricot brandy, cranberry, raspberry syrup and a dash of rose water. Prices are in line with Abu Dhabi hotel bar prices and for what it’s worth they host a ladies night every Monday and Wednesday, whereon ‘ladies’ can partake of a selection of complimentary beverages.
