Located in the heart of Yas Island, amongst award-winning theme parks, outstanding amenities of sports and entertainment, Yas Mall introduces a new flavour to the Emirati culinary scene by welcoming huna and its coveted collection of F&B brands and retailers. Spread across 3,500 square meters, huna Yas will offer a uniquely designed food hall and inimitable spaces to deliver curated day to night experiences to champion the homegrown talents of the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
A platform to celebrate food, art and culture, huna prides itself in establishing community-led, culturally and artistically curated spaces across great cities of the region, with the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia in its heart, vision and soul. Mansour Bakheet, the founder of huna, successfully established two venues in Dubai since 2018, with huna alWasl in Jumeirah’s residential neighborhood, and huna by the pond, a tranquil destination tucked in AlQouz Pond Park. huna launched their first destination in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia with huna takhassusi in 2020 flourishing with Saudi’s emerging concepts and brands from across the city in the heart of Riyadh. With the launch of huna Yas, visitors will discover the city’s finest artists, performers, and works by artisans and artists, with a mission to participate in creating stories and inspiring a new generation of creative thinkers and makers.
huna yas is set to unveil over 10 unique hospitality offerings (some of which have developed its first form of a full-fledged restaurant), a private member’s workspace, and a specially-designed retail market set in a universal space that will allow visitors to taste and indulge in the multiple delicacies presented. hunaworks, the designated area for members to access the workspaces and co-working facilities, has been designed for an exclusive selection of start-ups, entrepreneurs and key figures for the emerging culinary scene in Abu Dhabi. Created for a new world era, the F&B brands will include a blend of cuisines with the finest
ingredients, and expertise with traditional yet contemporary techniques for the capital’s most iconic island.
Designed by Key Concept, the venue is inspired by the greater reclaimed area of Abu Dhabi, and the duality of land meets sea, where huna Yas will present “Islands of Experiences.”
“The turquoise hues of the ocean, the yellow tinge of the sand, and the olive-green shades of the mangroves are immense sources of inspiration for the interiors. An homage to the modernist urban fabric of Abu Dhabi, it continues the design stories that is truly unique in the city.”
The visionary development of huna pays paramount gratitude to Yas Mall for its ongoing support. Yas Mall and huna aligned at a pivotal time in Yas Mall’s community development by huna’s signal of commitment to deliver luxurious, personalized, and authentic experiences and a narrative worth sharing for Abu Dhabi guests and citizens. huna will
be implementing bespoke events and programming, aligned with Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, shaping and shining the city’s brightest talents and icons alike. huna Yas will mark its destination as a melting pot and fluid space of blending brands, initiatives and experiences with a hint of UAE culture, that will be unforgettable.
