MAMSHA AL SAADIYAT
The cheese and wine night at Raclette is a cut above others with 2 hours of unlimited wine and some excellent cheese on offer. As usual, the team at Raclette goes over and above to make sure a good experience is had by all: there's plenty of bread and crackers to go with the cheese including some sinfully good garlic bread and even a bowl of melted cheese, giving a nod to the Raclette moniker.
What makes it even better is the recent addition of live music. Starting from 8PM, enjoy the classics in English, French and Spanish, making for a magical ambiance, giving that little bit of je ne sais quoi that gives Raclette its sublime edge.

WINE NOT - 20% OFF WITH BB+
Perfect for either date night or a girls get-together, The Warehouse is one of Abu Dhabi's unsung heroes. With its moody interior, it croons wine cellar and is completely suited to a laid-back wine and cheese experience.
The cheeseboard is a good size, with some nice cheese including brie de meaux and cheddar, paired with a couple of cornichons and some tomato relish. We also enjoyed the cold cuts, which were fresh and tasty, a great accompaniment to the cheesy goodness. All of this is accompanied by some seriously pillowy bread and of course a grissini or two to add some crunch to the experience.
Choose from 8 wines: 3 white, 3 red a rose and a sparkling, all well-matched with the cheese on offer.
This is a relaxed, after-dinner cheeseboard in an atmospheric venue.
Time: Daily from 4PM
Price: AED180 | 20% off with BB+

SHERATON ABU DHABI
20% OFF WITH BB+
Le Bistrot isn't a huge space and is bright and modern, making for a nice ambiance. Their wine and cheese is a really nice evening out.
The buffet is modest but mighty with a cheese selection made up of about 15 high-quality French cheeses, a few different cold cuts, dried fruits, and spreads. Fresh warm bread is served to the table throughout the evening along with butter and roasted garlic. Each cheese is labeled with the name of the cheese and the type of milk it was made from, which is helpful for us would-be-but-aren't cheese enthusiasts. The cheese range is good: some creamy and bright, some are smooth and nutty, and others firm and a bit funky. There's an orange marmalade which pairs well with the double cream cow's milk cheese, Camembert. They also have a caramel spread to pair with one of the salty goat's cheeses.
There are two wines included in the offer, red or white, both are French, of course and both very drinkable wines! The offer runs for 4 hours from 7-11pm, which is plenty of time to work your way through all of the different cheeses and more than a few glasses of wine on a Friday night!
Time: Fridays 7-11pm
Price: AED179pp | AED140pp with BB+

ABU DHABI CRICKET & SPORTS HUB
The Boundary Cafe and Bar is probably not what you'd expect to find at the Abu Dhabi Cricket and Sports Hub. It's chic yet fun interior and friendly staff make it a great place to while away an hour or so while you're watching your kids play sport, or are just in the neighbourhood.
The wine and cheese deal is a good one: unlimited wine for 3 hours and a cheese board, generously refilled for just AED165. The board is beautifully presented and filled with not only 3 different cheeses but loads of different kinds and textures of bread, fruit designed to complement the cheese and various condiments.
Choose from 3 varieties of house wine, all designed to pair well with the cheese. This is one of those situations where you might think you'll just have a couple of bits and end up cleaning the board - it's perfect over a good chat.
Time: 7PM - 10PM daily
Price: AED165 per person
