There’s live entertainment, soft serve ice cream and a brownie station…

Get 2022 off to a sophisticated start with a quaint little picnic on the lawns surrounding Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saturday January 15.

A work of art

Set against the dramatic backdrop of the museum’s iconic dome roof, this family friendly picnic offers live entertainment; ice cream brownie and hot chocolate stations; and a choice between a pair of four-person picnic hampers (Dhs200 for members, Dhs230 for non-members)  — all in a breezy alfresco setting.

If you don’t fancy picking up a picnic box, you can just opt for the picnic day pass (Dhs20 for members Dhs30 or non-members).

There’ll be plenty of activities for mini monets too, with arts and crafts sessions — and because you’re within a palette’s throw of, Louvre Abu Dhabi, truly — a world class museum and gallery, it’s the perfect excuse to meander through the maze of masterpieces just next door.

A work of eat

There are two options for your picnic box, Aptitude and nectar — both offering a suitably elegant collection of artisanal nibbles.
