Introducing Club Social: the UAE’s hottest new hangout
They say: "A great day to fish for likes." We say: "Giant lollipops will do the trick nicely, thanks."

Millennial foodies, stop Instagramming your avo toast and listen up. It’s time to hang out IRL (that’s in real life, FYI) – and where better than the beach?

Allow us to introduce you to Club Social: a new series of events dedicated to putting the social back into social media in the UAE by setting up a destination and meet-up concept. We’re listening...

The first spot? Yas Beach, Abu Dhabi, where on 27 and 28 April between 10am-10pm there will be a focus on food that promises to "connect foodie content creators, food lovers and all around social clubbers." Visitors can also use the Careem promo code ‘ClubSocial’ for a 20 per cent discount on a trip there and Radisson Blu is offering a Staycation package of a room for Dhs297. Result. 

From shopping to sunbathing and snapping your activities including sundown yoga and volleyball using the hashtag #SocialInRealLife – there’s plenty to keep you occupied.

Food wise, Club Social has lined up the most 'grammable homegrown concepts in town. Think juicy burgers from BBQ Box, rainbow-coloured cheese toasties from Boston Lane and cornflake-themed coffee from café, Flakes Hub.  

What Grazia is most excited about, however, is Hind Adib’s workshop. The unisex streetwear brand will have a super cool pop-up where you can not only shop, but have the chance to personalise your own denim jacket. You can never have too many denim jackets, right? Asking for a friend… 

Speaking of pals, anyone can attend and it’s free entry – there are plenty of activities (including personalising your own lollipops and watching films under the stars) for kids too.

See you on the sand!
