The fun pop-up kicks off this evening on Al Maryah Island…

Experience a host of cultural and traditional delights at Al Maryah Nights beginning this evening, as one of the capital’s premier lifestyle and retail destinations is about to host a fun display for the whole family to enjoy from March 28 to 31.

From 5pm to midnight, Al Maryah Nights will transform the island, with the pop-up experience providing fun activities for all age groups including calligraphy sessions, rock climbing and bungee jumping. Additionally, it will also feature traditional Ayallah & Harbiyah performances.

For those looking to indulge in some friendly competition, you can look forward to a weekend of board games, and for retail enthusiasts, traditional fragrances and fashion picks such as bakhoor, oud, and a collection of abayas will be available to purchase. If you’re more the experiential kind, enjoy a unique opportunity to indulge in a homegrown coffee brewing experience at their Majlis, and for the fitness focused, there’s also activities to enjoy at Active Al Maryah.  You will also be able to explore and discover authentic flavours and products at their traditional “Bakala” area, and if you’re heading over with the whole family, enjoy their movie nights.

Conducting a steakout at the ADGM South Plaza will be a cool food truck from the Four Seasons Abu Dhabi’s own Chicago-inspired Butcher and Still. With super salads like the salmon-avocado, mains like a good ol’ Chicago hotdog, corned beef on rye and Philly cheese steak sandwiches, and a wholesome NY-style cheesecake to make your visit all the sweeter, you don’t want to miss this.

Al Maryah Island also includes various Ramadan-themed options for the entire family, including incredible Iftars at the many award-winning restaurants housed at The Galleria Al Maryah Island, Four Seasons Hotel and the Rosewood Abu Dhabi.

If you’re looking to explore even more Ramadan-themed popups and activations around the capital, here’s What’s On’s own nifty list.
