But, although we’ve been talking about its much-anticipated opening for a while now, many people might still be unsure about what exactly this new Abu Dhabi workspace has to offer.
Well, in a nutshell, Yas Creative Hub boasts a Creative Hub that provides everything that content creators, gamers, journalists, videographers and everyone from across the region’s media, entertainment and gaming industries needs to connect, create and live.
From world-class facilities, inspiring connection spaces to incredible dining opportunities, it really does have it all. Here’s why Yas Creative Hub is the most dynamic creative workspace that the GCC has ever seen.
A state-of-the-art Abu Dhabi workspace
Every element of the Yas Creative Hub campus has been carefully thought out. Designed to be practical, inspiring and uplifting, it provides all the tools and equipment required for the creative community to expand their horizons and improve their skills as content creators and storytellers.
A cutting-edge and technology-driven creative workspace, the brand-new facilities include:
- A spacious film studio
- State of the art editing labs
- State of the art sound labs
- A dedicated centre for gaming (AD Gaming hub)
- Comfortable lounge areas for collaborations and interactions
- Chic and comfortable offices and boardrooms of all sizes, with each filled with natural light
- Numerous quality F&B outlets
- Picturesque outdoor areas for relaxing and exercise
Encouraging connections and collaborations
As well as providing all the resources that the industry needs to thrive and prosper, the creative workspace also aims to connect each area of the media and entertainment sector and encourage socialising and collaborations.
Specifically designed gathering spaces can be found on each of the three floors, providing welcoming environments where partners can meet, interact, exchange ideas and experience a revitalising change of scenery from their own offices.
The Creative Hub has purpose-built sections for new start-ups, gamers and film producers, each element is able to come together whenever they desire.
Amazing food and beverage outlets
Of course, every creative genius needs to fuel their work with some healthy and delicious food.
Indeed, partners of Yas Creative Hub will be spoiled for choice with the vast array of delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee break options found within the vibrant campus.
The interesting and exciting onsite outlets include a homegrown café that specialises in artisan coffees and satisfying lunch options, plus a special concept created by one of Abu Dhabi’s most legendary restaurant brands. Concocted exclusively for Abu Dhabi’s newest creative workspace, it provides amazing beverages and dishes as well as a vibrant place to relax and network.
Media professionals will also be able to take a culinary journey across the globe during their working week, with an Asian restaurant lead by an expert chef who has moved all the way over from New York just for the Yas Island opening, and an iconic European coffee shop that is launching in the UAE for the very first time. Based on the rooftop of Yas Creative Hub, the relaxed café offers panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf and the striking city skyline.

Meanwhile, each lounge space will also offer an array of grab-and-go options, meaning that employees and business owners will never have to travel far in order to quickly grab a tasty refreshment at any time they choose.
But the tantalising food options don’t stop there. Yas Bay, the island’s hottest new lifestyle destination, is found just across the road from Yas Creative Hub and upon completion it will boast over 50 cafes and restaurants, all spread out across the beautiful waterfront promenade.
Just a short walk away from the creative workspace, it’s the perfect place for after-work drinks or a bite to eat. Here the creative community will be able to visit homegrown dining outlets and big-name brands such as Mexican hotspot La Carnita, Dubai-founded Asia Asia, stylish three-tier hotspot The Trilogy by Buddha-Bar, rock ‘n’ roll hangout Lock, Stock & Barrel and many more.
The area also contains the iconic Etihad Arena (host to major sporting events like the UFC, gigs from world’s biggest comedians and award-winning music artists), multiple gorgeous five-star hotels, tranquil walk ways and even an arcade complex.
New venue for community events
Finally, it’s important to note that Yas Creative Hub isn’t just for the media professionals and that it also offers many wonderful experiences for the wider community.
For instance, the huge external amphitheatre is set to become one of the most dynamic gathering places for Abu Dhabi residents and visitors.
Perfect for hosting public events, community activations, screenings and movie nights, it includes a large screen and ample room for families and friends to congregate safely.
