My wife and I recently went to Coopers for a few drinks while in Abu Dhabi on a rare two-day weekend. The atmosphere was lively and inviting and the place was filled to capacity...at 8:30 PM. That's a testament to a good product. The beer was cold and the outdoor seating was comfortable.

My only complaint would be the inadequate numbers of wait staff, at least for the outdoor section(s). It appeared that only one waitress was working the area and she was moving constantly but still overwhelmed.

By no means a reason not to go, and this is by no means an assertion that the service was poor. She performed her duties admirably. But note to management - more servers would be greatly appreciated, but again, overall a good experience.

I have been waiting to repost about Cooper's! I posted a not-so=great review about this place, commenting on a food item and the service, both of which had not lived up to past experience or expectations. I was personally contacted and invited to return. And, you know what? They changed things for the better! This is what great leadership does (Thanks Mr. Giles for that!) Great F&B Mgr, wait staff, and back to really great food! Thank you, Cooper's!

One of the destinations in Abu Dhabi on a Thursday night. Visited it twice and both times were cool. Loud music for those who love to stomp the dance floor. Nice place to hangout with friends. But my favorite will always be the bar, beverages won’t take long to reach your throat as the bartenders were attentive.

Nice Place to chill after a long week.

Arrived here at 11pm on a very quiet Saturday-got grief from the bouncer who took 5 minutes examining my ID. Table service took 15 minutes - we had to ask for assistance. Drinks were served very fast but service staff were extremely rude. Advertised that DJ would be on but that wasn't the case. Was much better on my last visit-must improve before I will come back again. Happy hour was very good value for money though

Thank Dubaihead

Dear TripAdvisor Member,

Greetings from Park Rotana Abu Dhabi!

I would like to thank you for visiting Cooper’s Bar & Restaurant and for reviewing us on TripAdvisor. I would like to apologize for the service experience last week. My team is well aware of the high service standards they need to follow and this matter will be addressed to our Cooper’s Management team in order to continuously improve our service.

We also have a resident DJ in Coopers from Mon-Fri, the bar gets exceptionally busy on Saturday and Sunday for the football games hence the DJ does not play on these nights.

We look forward to welcome you back in the near future.

Warm Regards,

Ameya Sapre
Director of Food and Beverage

This is the place to be if you are up to fun, loud music, dancing and elbow rubbing. Bartenders are very attentive even they busy especially during the weekends. For ladies like me, visit them on a Wednesday night for ladies' night out with oozing boozes from 8PM - 12 midnight!
