The Yas Bay Waterfront destination on Yas Island – which is set be home to world-class dining, leisure and entertainment brands – will open to guests on December 1, Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading curator of magnetic experiences has announced.

Overlooking the glittering waters of the Arabian Gulf, the Yas Bay Waterfront is set to become Abu Dhabi’s vibrant day to night destination.

Featuring Pier71, and a 3-km boardwalk, coupled with a variety of world-class dining, leisure and entertainment brands on opening, the destination will complement the exciting offerings at Yas Bay, including Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Hotel, and Etihad Arena, Abu Dhabi’s first-of-its-kind multi-purpose, indoor entertainment venue.

Gurjit Singh, Chief Portfolio Officer at Miral, said: “This new destination supports our vision for Yas Island to become a global convergence for entertainment, leisure and business, as well as an attractive location for partnerships and investment opportunities. We are looking forward to welcoming residents and visitors to enjoy the exceptional experiences and distinctive international culinary adventure on offer.”

The vibrant and premier destination will feature world-class dining concepts, including the Ibiza styled beach club, Café del Mar, known for its distinctive ambience, music, and Mediterranean cuisine; Paradiso - a renowned Mediterranean restaurant helmed by both Nicole Rubi, the woman behind La Petite Maison and Michelin star Chef Pierre Gagnaire, and the critically acclaimed Japanese street-food concept, Akiba Dori.

Complementing the growing and diverse F&B offerings are a series of exciting food and beverage experiences in Pier71. These include the trilogy by Buddha-Bar comprising Zeera, Bushra and the Siddharta Lounge; Hunter and Barrel, The Lighthouse, La Carnita, Daikan Izakaya, Lock Stock and Barrel, and Asia Asia.

With Pier71 and Boardwalk line-up near complete, another two interesting concepts are anticipated to open for business in the coming months.

The unique aesthetic of Yas Bay Waterfront offers stunning views of the Arabian Gulf, which has inspired a series of bespoke artwork, and has enriched the ambience of the destination. International artists such as Beastman, Fatspatrol, Monkeybird, as well as Supakitch and Coralie have curated exclusive pieces, with inspiration taken from the local culture, history, and environment, and Abu Dhabi’s distinguished architecture.
