Abu Dhabi, UAE – ‘Aperitivo’ – that delicious wind-down session between work and dinner time – has found its way into The Manhattan Lounge.
Guests at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi can now get on board with the Italian custom of nibbling on tempting snacks while drinking with its all-new Aperitivo Nights. And when it's at one of Abu Dhabi’s top lounging hotspots, who can deny a little midweek treat?
Every Wednesday, The Manhattan Lounge offers a wide variety of complimentary signature bites to its patrons who try two or more drinks from its Aperitivo menu between 6pm and 8pm.
The antipasti selection includes marinated olives and artichoke, stuffed peppadew, salami, cured meats, grissini and parmesan chunks. Other cold starters featured on the menu are tuna tartare and focaccia sandwiches.
Those looking for hot canapés are sure to enjoy the truffle arancini, and range of signature pizzas and ravioli along with the most stunning vistas at dusk.
Boasting the debonair air of a traditional gentleman’s bar, The Manhattan Lounge is ideally positioned on the lobby level of the resort, where its large terrace overlooks the azure gulf. Stone-paneled walls, smooth timber floors topped with plush, subtly patterned rugs and upholstered panels topped with Arabian-style wooden latticework add to its swanky ambience.
Behind the bar, a traditional mural recounting the origins of Abu Dhabi’s early settlers speaks to both the resort’s idyllic location and The St. Regis tradition. The lounge also offers an extensive menu of classic and artisanal cocktails, bubbly and grapes.
