Ibiza’s Café del Mar to open in Abu Dhabi

The famed beach club will launch in the UAE capital in Q4 2021

Property developer Miral has signed a deal with Capital Motion to bring Café del Mar to Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island.

Set to open this year, the world-famous Ibiza beach bar will be introduced to Abu Dhabi for the first time and will be a significant addition to the hospitality offering at Yas Bay Waterfront.

Founded in 1980 in San Antonio – known locally as Sant Antoni de Portmany – on the Spanish island of Ibiza, Café del Mar was pivotal in transforming this sleepy fishing town into a party haven, frequented by clubgoers from around the globe. 

Since then, the venue has established itself as one of the world’s most revered bars with multiple locations across the world. The Abu Dhabi outpost will offer a Mediterranean-inspired menu with Middle Eastern flavours.


Commenting on the announcement, Hilton EMEA vice president, F&B Strategy and Development Emma Banks said: “We’re excited to bring Café del Mar to Abu Dhabi. A truly global phenomenon, we will transport that same Spanish charm and magic to Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island; serving up the most delicious Mediterranean food and pouring sumptuous drinks to fuel our guests as they dance the day and night away. We look forward to offering our guests an experience like no other!”

As a vibrant leisure and entertainment nightlife destination, Yas Bay Waterfront is home to a wide array of nightlife and entertainment attractions, including 37 cafés and restaurants and 19 retail outlets.
