Abu Dhabi’s premier destination Yas Bay Waterfront destination on Yas Island will open to guests on December 1 2021, announced Miral, a leading curator of magnetic experiences. Overlooking the glittering waters of the Arabian Gulf, Yas Bay Waterfront is set to be Abu Dhabi’s vivacious day to night destination.
Featuring Pier71, and a three-kilometre Boardwalk, coupled with a variety of world-class dining, leisure and entertainment brands on opening, Yas Bay Waterfront will complement the already 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: “The opening of Yas Bay Waterfront is another proud milestone for Yas Island. 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 Yas Bay Waterfront to enjoy the exceptional experiences and distinctive international culinary adventure on offer.”
The pulsating 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 globally 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. Several other concepts will also open by year end, including Emmy Squared, Drop Café, and family-friendly venue, Central. 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 uninterrupted views of the Arabian Gulf, which has inspired a series of bespoke artwork by international artists such as Beastman, Fatspatrol, Monkeybird, as well as Supakitch and Coralie, who have curated exclusive pieces, with inspiration taken from the local culture, history, and environment, and Abu Dhabi’s distinguished architecture.
In celebrating Yas Bay Waterfront’s opening, guests can expect an exciting line-up of daily entertainment, performances, and events such as DJ Nights, parades, musical renditions, along with fireworks displays set to take place on the weekend for the month of December.
This will also be in parallel with a series of much anticipated events that will be taking place such as the UAE’s Golden Jubilee, the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021 at Yas Marina Circuit, the upcoming FINA World Swimming Championship, and the festive season on Yas Island including the annual New Year’s Eve celebration.
Yas Bay Waterfront is a key component being developed as part of Miral’s AED4 billion ($1.09 billion) investment in the overall AED12 billion masterplan of Yas Bay. The Yas Bay Waterfront area will offer visitors further enriched experiences and choices on Yas Island and is one of three distinct areas with the other two being; Residences at Yas Bay and the Yas Creative Hub – the new home of twofour54. Once complete, Yas Bay is set to attract 15,000 future residents and over 10,000 business professionals.
The Waterfront is 5 minutes away from Yas Island’s immersive and award-winning attractions and experiences, including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi and CLYMB.
