The behavior of the staff including the facilities manager was completely out of order and unnecessary in my opinion. The waitress gets a very special mention for her level of aggression, man handling of me & screaming at me.

This situation occurred for the simple fact that a couple wanted our table. We did not have a special table - it was literally along the side of the bar but we were aggressively informed by the waitress that our wrist bands were a lower grade and that we had to give up our table.

When I refused the waitress started screaming at me and the facilities manager came along to re-inforce the point.

This absolutely ruined my day & equally my friends as we booked that brunch to enjoy our F1 weekend.

Eventually they went away & got the couple another table behind us. Overall this was a scary sick experience. We were also 2 females so I’m not sure this would’ve happened if I had been with a guy.

I felt threatened, scared & completely astounded that this could happen on what should be a fun party atmosphere on my weekend.

If there are meant to be tables for customers with higher wristbands then those tables should be reserved and accounted for.

I would recommend customer service and an anger management course for the people involved particularly the waitress.

I am very disappointed as I have yet to receive an explanation for this behavior or a response to my email.

A fantastic venue for nights out. Finally we found a lifestyle nightclub in Abu Dhabi Yas Island with fabulous location inside the F1 circuit, good DJ, fashion shows, tables service and new management.

My friends and I decided to head down to Empire on a Monday night. I, however was the only one without a UAE ID and I had left my actual passport at home.

I understand that you either have to have one or the other to enter but I wanted to try my luck any way with my Australian ID (keypass) or a copy of my passport. As I arrived, not to my surprise I wasn't allowed in, and that's OK.

But what made me SO UPSET was the guy right after me was allowed in with a copy of HIS passport and when my friends and I asked the bouncer how he was allowed in and not me (WITH MY COPY) he said WORD FOR WORD "just look at her".

He clearly couldn't find a better excuse and had to mention that I looked "TOO YOUNG" mind you I have my aus ID/copy of my passport clearly stating my age.

Everything would have been fine if there had been some sort of consistency in the entry requirement and treatment of customers.

DO NOT GO TO EMPIRE NIGHTCLUB unless you want to pay 100 dirhams to be insulted by rude reception staff and disrespectful arrogant bar staff.

Our friends were staying at Yas Hotel and understandably were of the impression that the Nightclub was part of the hotel (since it is attached). It isn't and how dare we ask this or any other question about entry.

The obnoxious individual on reception told us that if we didn't hurry up and move she would have us ejected by security (we were still in the process of paying at this point and she was holding us up by insulting us instead of finalizing the transaction).

We should however have seriously considered this option.

For you AED 100 as well as free insults you also get a free drink of Empire's choosing not yours. So its wine or vodka with a mixer that has been left opened for hours and has zero fizz.

Do not think to complain about this. Your bartender will refuse to do anything about it and will then ignore you and talk to his friend across the bar about you.

Childish, arrogant, disrespectful and totally unacceptable behavior.

From start to finish this was a dreadful experien

There is a vibrational magic to music at this club. I don’t know if it’s quality of sound system. Layout. Lighting. Dj’S. the music choice. Mixing. Staff ... I have No idea. What pushed me to say .....magical. Well! One, it is impressive that the times I visited the club, each time it’s been a fantastic experience . That weekend, our stay in Abu Dhabi. One first night , the Thursday , totally mind blowing. Seriously.! I thought to myself , no way can this club experience be any more exciting . But. ... the Next day. The Friday. With a guest Dj and a live saxophonist..... the vibrational electrifying atmosphere was almost beyond excitement ... thank you Empire. Truly. For the most wonderful trance like atmosphere and pure pleasure the whole experience gave us.
