1. Lounge Manager Altaf Shaikh knows how to craft your perfect day

A true master of his craft, Restaurant and Lounge Manager Altaf Shaikh brings a wealth of experience to the table, having worked at both Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai and Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach. At Eclipse Terrace Lounge, he has created a venue where the atmosphere is spot-on day or night.

It is all about the angles, and at Eclipse you will have many gram-worthy spots to take your Four Seasons shot. Altaf recommends picking out a spot at the corner of the pool for pinnacle views of Four Seasons, Al Maryah Island, and the Arabian Gulf and a radiant tan.

His favourite night of the week is the ever-popular Ladies’ Night, which has a vibrant party vibe created by a live-DJ, two complimentary beverages and dreamy evening views. “It is Abu Dhabi’s best party. You can’t beat the panoramic views and the atmosphere is amazing with our in-house DJ mixing the latest tracks. Our team of mixologists craft the perfect beverages to keep the party buzzing,” says Shaikh. This is where, he puts his experience at Mumbai’s most exclusive lounge to good use. “At AER, we created the best party in town. You had some of India’s top VIPs coming and it was always packed. At Abu Dhabi, we replicate the same magic, bringing the city’s “it” crowd.”

2. The bartenders craft magical cocktails

Master mixologist Luigi Landi is much adored at Eclipse Terrace Lounge not only for his warm personality, stories, and sense of humour but also for something unique. His signature cocktails come with a show, a front row seat to magical mixology – his favourite is the “Disappearing Lemon,” an Italian gioco involving four shakers, slices of lemon, and a ton of smiles.

3. You can satisfy all your poke cravings
