In an ode to the island’s beautiful crystal clear shore, Miral announced the opening of Yas Bay Waterfront on December 1, embracing a lineup of entertainment and leisure functions. This dock, located in Abu Dhabi, will include restaurants, lounges, and bespoke artwork presentations, adding a new destination to the Yas Island ‘must-visit’ list. Some of the restaurants waiting to bring in new dining experiences include Café del Mar, an Ibiza-style beach club; Paradiso, an international favorite by Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire and Nicole Rubi, the woman behind La Petite Maison; and the Japanese street food concept Akiba Dori.

“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,” said Gurjit Singh, chief portfolio officer at Miral.

Growing the entertainment scene at the dock, the Buddha Bar trilogy is also expected to be set up by the island waters developing on the Zeera, Bushra, and Siddhartha Lounge. Other restaurants joining the list include the Australian fire-inspired restaurant Hunter and Barrel, The Lighthouse, La Carnita, Lock Stock & Barrel, and Asia Asia.
