CONRAD ETIHAD TOWERS
Let the elevator wizz you all the way to the 62nd floor as you anticipate an evening to remember. Dubbed the Grape Escape, this Friday night offering is one that will definitely make you feel a world away. Free-flowing wine and bottomless cheese? You won’t go hungry or thirsty here! A beautifully presented buffet awaits, filled with a generous charcuterie offering - we rate the array of French and Italian cheeses, contrasted with the saltiness of some pancetta. The wine selection is also a winner - with reds, white and rose available you can conduct your own mini tasting until you land upon the perfect pairing. The pièce de résistance? Great live music and one of the best views in the city!
Time: Friday 8-11PM

You can pick and choose wines to your preferences from a good range, with 3 paired wines starting at AED135.
