This emirate is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, a destination that is attracting remote workers.
When you're spending time in the United Arab Emirates and head into the main capital west of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, it may be intimidating to think of where to find coworking space. Abu Dhabi has a lot of office buildings, but finding a place to work as a digital nomad and remote worker might not be as obvious.
With hot weather all year long, and lots of business opportunities, we expect more and more people to come directly to Abu Dhabi or venture from Dubai to do business and get work done.
Below are some of the best coworking spaces in Abu Dhabi, UAE for your consideration.

WeWork is indeed the famous global pioneer of the concept of coworking, a concept that scaled up around the world. It opened one location in Abu Dhabi in 2020 at Hub71, a significant tech hub in ADGM Square, Al Maryah Island in the heart of Abu Dhabi.
Be aware that booking a WeWork hotdesk requires signing up for a membership with the WeWork app and space may not always be guaranteed.
Upload yourself to the cloud at Cloud Spaces, this coworking membership club offers some services with its Cloud Commingle membership, but what you are probably looking for is the Cloud On The Go service which offers coworking hot desking at locations in Yas Mall and ADGM. Like everything in UAE, make sure you confirm weekend availability before heading in.
The website looks very old-school, but there are indeed coworking options available at ServCorp at the Etihad Tower and World Trade Center. Give them a text on WhatsApp to get in touch — it's the best and fastest way to get a hold of ServCorp.
