“Cove Beach Makers District is the latest lifestyle destination in Abu Dhabi, providing a much-needed oasis in Al Reem Island.” Cove Beach
The Makers District on Reem Island is home to Abu Dhabi’s newest lifestyle location, Cove Beach. Already a popular destination in neighbouring Dubai, the home-grown beach club opened in the capital at the tail-end of last year and has been attracting plenty of visitors with its party vibe and signature glitzy themed events.
With oceanfront views and backdrop of the Al Reem skyline, the licensed beach club is a day to night location offering everything that you might expect from a luxury beach club. On one side of the venue is the infinity pool with adjoining outdoor dining terrace and lounge as well the indoor restaurant that offers an unexpected touch of fine dining with wagyu steaks and oysters appearing on the Two.0 menu. The main beach club area houses a larger pool overlooking the stretch of golden beach with loungers, day beds, cabanas and selected water sports.
The outdoor Lounge is the perfect poolside location especially at sunset, it’s the place to dine, enjoy a cocktail and smoke shisha. Two.0 combines its relaxed beach chic interior, think light wood and blue hued tones, with an extensive menu which is seafood and sushi heavy. We enjoyed a lunch of lobster salad, a club sandwich, smoothies and even had a rhubarb crumble. While those who, like us, just wish to dine are welcome to visit without the beach club entry fee there is a minimum spend which is higher on weekends. As well as the all-day menu there’s also a daily breakfast menu available daily from 9am – 11am, business lunch special and a weekly Friday Brunch.
There’s lots of promotions throughout the week including the popular ‘Rosé All Day’ ladies’ day (Rose all-day 12 noon – 5pm and all-night (8pm – 11pm) every Thursday with unlimited rose wine and sangria, pink gin and so much more. The weekly line-up of events include unplugged music sessions (when restrictions allow) and food and beverage deals, see all the weekly events HERE.
Cove Beach is a place of many experiences. Pop by for a relaxed beachside breakfast, enjoy the sea views with a spot of lunch with a glass of vino, relax by the pool or on the beach and finish the day chilling with a sundowner. However at the weekend or in the evenings it’s an altogether livelier, party venue with a vibe akin to a European beach party.
