It’s time to name the best in Abu Dhabi. Your favourite restaurants, the best brunches, the best spas, the best fitness clubs, the best music events. You’ve been voting online for the What’s On Awards 2019 since August to help us reward the capital’s best.

A further four categories; Indie Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Newcomer of the Year and Restaurant of the Year will also be awarded on the night, voted for solely by the expert What’s On team.
