be part of it

It is our vison to be a hub for the community, to give back in anyway we can and support the many local projects that are happening in Studio City, Dubai.

Part of this vision is to partner with local community projects that enhance the lives of the people in and around, Arabian Ranches, Studio City, Mudon, Damac Hills, Remram, Motor City, Sports City and beyond.

We take community seriously and if you want to partner on a project, or you have an out-of-the-box idea you think we might like, get in touch with the team. We can’t wait to meet you.

Time for a coffee


The Ranches ladies was one of the first community projects at Studio One. Founded 13 years ago by Carol Binbrek, this is a community of like-minded women taking part in charity events, fund raising, coffee mornings and above all else, offering support to each other.

They meet every Tuesday at Larte, Studio One Hotel and have held several events in the restaurant and hotel including talks, markets, festive and many more. Check out their website here for more details on how to join… you do have to be a lady though!

Making the dream work


Team AngelWolf is a non-profit foundation that promotes an inclusive, active life together with People of Determination (people with disabilities). They work with families and individuals of all abilities in a welcoming, connected space, where everyone is welcome and everyone is equal.

Team AngelWolf enjoys the cinema on a monthly basis proving how versatile and inclusive our cinema experiences can be. Get in touch with Nick if you want some more information. His passion for this project is born out of a father’s dedication and love for his ‘pack’. You can’t help but feel uplifted and inspired by their story.



A fitness community with no judgement and no limits. Box, kick, ride, lift and sweat your way through the sessions! Boxica is a big supporter of Studio One. Right on the doorstep less than 100 steps away we have partnered with this Studio City based fitness centre to bring a unique experience to our guests and STARS. Alongside this, the whole Boxica community has access to some amazing discounts available in the cinema ON2 and at Larte!

The students at Metropol have taken part in pizza making and pasta making classes at Larte, customer service and hospitality training with the team and our Marketing Manager even opened the Farm shop along with the head boy and girl and the Principal of the school.
