WHAT'S ON LOCK IN RETURN
What's On Abu Dhabi|June 2021
The country’s best staycation deal returns to the brilliant Fairmont Bab Al Bahr...

We’re returning to the scene of our very first Abu Dhabi What’s On Lock-In, the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. But, while the original event was a family-focused staycation, this time we’re leaving the kids at home (with appropriate supervision, of course) so we can focus on some real fun. Other than the fact that it’s adults-only, the format of this incredibly strong value staycation remains much the same: A night’s stay, brunch, pampering, bonus free drinks, breakfast, entertainment and activities, all for Dhs699, for two people. Read on for more…

Taking place at Abu Dhabi’s Fairmont Al Bahr, checking in on June 18 and checking out on the afternoon of June 19, this is what you can expect...

Here’s exactly what’s going down… DAY 1 01 THE VENUE

Fairmont Bab Al Bahr is a luxury five-star hotel perched on Abu Dhabi’s Khor Al Maqta creek. It features stylish, modern rooms and a plush range of family-friendly facilities. The property-bracing pool complex is certified Insta-perfect and is equipped with a swim-up bar. There’s a health club, private beach and five epic dining outlets.

Tashas - A New Cafe Concept Opens in Al Bateen

What do you get if you mix South African cuisine with Arabic and Mediterranean dishes, influences and décor? Tashas, a new high-end café in Al Bateen. Originally launched 12 years ago by South African Natasha Sideris, the Abu Dhabi branch is the first in the capital and will likely ruffle a few feathers among the city’s café scene, because Tashas is a cut above most we’ve visited in the capital.

SANDWICH Sorcery

How often does a scruffy guy open a funky neighborhood sandwich shop that becomes a coast-to-coast culinary sensation? Like never, that's how often. Yet that's exactly what transpired not long ago when Mason Hereford welcomed hungry New Orleanians to Turkey and the Wolf and its chefy, stoner-ific sammies loaded with catfish salad, chicken-fried steak and anchovy crème fraîche. Glowing reviews and best-new-restaurant accolades from Bon Appétit and Food & Wine followed, and still keep the joint hopping. Now Hereford channels his sandwich voodoo into a new cookbook, also titled Turkey and the Wolf, and shares some choice recipes with you.
