    What can I do after work hours in Abu Dhabi?

    Things to do in Abu Dhabi in the evening? Used to be that it was a pretty short list - crashing out in restaurants, bars, lounges and shopping centers .. or for the more active - participating in some sort of sport (i.e. tennis, football, bowling, .. even ice hockey). The list is beginning to grow. If you enjoy the arts then I'd recommend checking out Manarat Al Saadiyat http://www.saadiyat.ae/en/cultural/manarat-al-saadiyat1.html or Emirates Palace. Lecture series are also emerging via the various museums and universities. Standouts? NYU campus - check out http://nyuad.nyu.edu/news.events/events.ad.html for details. and the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies http://www.ecssr.ac.ae/ECSSR/appmanager/portal/ecssr?_nfpb=true&_nfls=false&_pageLabel=HomePageECSSR&lang=en . Another option that is growing in popularity is just a liesurely stroll along the new Corniche. Typically now adorned with exhibitions and special events .. along with the usual assortment of restaurants and family based boardwalk amusements (i.e. bicycle rentals, roller blading, etc.) almost 8 years ago
