Up there with the best soiree spots in the capital…

Sophisticated tribe hive, Annex is back at The Abu Dhabi Edition and dedicated to making our weekends great again.

Split into Annex Rooftop and the Annex Club, the ‘multi-level entertainment space’ returns with a new laidback Saturday raving session, with marina views, free-flowing drinks, nibbles and bohemian beats.

Hosted between 5pm and 11.30pm, it’s your invitation to see off the weekend in style — the drinks list includes bubbles and mixology, the setlist is straight Balearic chill, and at Dhs248 for the house package (5pm to 8pm) and Dhs199 for soft, we’re calling it… issa whole vibe.

Annex will also open on Thursdays and Fridays.

Thursday nights, exemplary decksmith EYJEY will be and juicing up the bass cones with an Afrobeat, and Brazilian Funk flavour. And on Friday, it’s that old school RnB and hip hop thing. That east coast/west coast, ain’t nothin’ but a G thing. That late nineties, early noughties, if you don’t know, now you know – thing.
