The ever-popular Dubai venues are making there way to Yas Marina, just in time for F1…

Making your F1 weekend plans? Stop in your tracks, because three new venues are opening on Yas Island, and you’ve probably already heard of two of them.

Ever popular The Scene by Simon Rimmer and the now-legendary Mr Miyagi’s are set to open their doors in Yas Marina, just in time for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Thursday November 22.

The new Mr Miyagi’s, is promising all the same all-singing, all-dancing brunches, live karaoke and cabaret shows served up at it’s Media City outpost when it arrives in Yas Marina next month, coupled with some seriously impressive Yas Marina views.

Then over at The Scene, Yas Marina guests can expect the top British gastro dishes you know and love at the Dubai Marina outpost to be carried over, with some new elements added. A botanist garden will serve up a dedicated gin-based cocktail menu, while live acoustic musicians will dictate the tempo at the new family-friendly spot.

While you may not have put these venues together, they’re run by the same hospitality company, who will also be opening a third venue in Yas Marina called Casa de Cuba. For the Cuban cocktail bar, the brand have teamed up with Dinos Constantinides, cocktail legend and owner of the world’s 25th best cocktail bar, ‘Lost & Found’. Promising ‘a quality, authentic Cuban experience from decor to scent to taste to sound’, we’ve got high expectations for some top-notch cocktails served up to a weekly program of live DJs and Cuban style percussionists.

Over race weekend, it’ll be free entry at The Scene with or without an F1 pass, and the regular A la carte menu served from midday. At Casa De Cuba, F1 passes aren’t necessary, with small tables for up to 6 starting from Dhs2,500 minimum spend up to Dhs10,000 for a VIP booth for 8 to 10 guests. For Mr Miyagi’s, again you won’t need a pass to enter, with tables of 6 to 8 starting from a minimum spend of Dhs2,500.

Keen to get involved? The brand are still recruiting for a few roles, with both The Scene and Mr Miyagi’s advertising for positions on their social channels.

See you trackside…
