Opening hours for Abu Dhabi shopping malls

As a general rule, shopping malls are open 1000-2200 Saturday to Thursday and 1400 or 1600 to 2200 on Fridays. Busy times are Friday afternoons and evenings (almost everyone has Fridays off) and Thursday evenings. Other evenings are not exactly quiet though. Mornings are the best time to avoid crowds. Hours will vary slightly from one mall to the next, and usually food courts and supermarkets will be open later than 2200 (10pm).

Ramadan hours are usually extended to midnight for shops and sometimes later for supermarkets. Shops may be closed around Iftar (1700-1900 depending on time of year). During Ramadan, food outlets will be closed during daylight hours. Shops often stay open until midnight on other important dates eg New Years Eve, the night before Eid celebrations, Christmas Eve.
