THE ENTOURAGE GROUP – Revolutionising high-end hospitality
Renowned for creating cutting-edge food and drinks concepts, THE ENTOURAGE GROUP is transforming the face of high-end hospitality in The Netherlands and beyond.
‘’As a creative concept developer, I envision and feel the places I design before they actually exist. I always create places that suit the locals but try to offer them something new at the same time. It’s extremely important to get to know the market; you can’t ignore a city and it’s people’s heritage. I love to develop something from the roots and pay attention to every tiny detail. Every aspect has to be captured by the same language.’’
“I’m not creating restaurants, I’m creating experiences.
– Yossi Eliyahoo, founder of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP

‘Whenever I’m creating, I’m always really precise to ensure every place completely has its own identity: nothing is repeated,’ explains creative concept developer Eliyahoo, who co-founded THE ENTOURAGE GROUP along with renowned hotelier Liran Wizman.
It was only a matter of time before the rest of the world wanted their own slice of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP’s slick hospitality and design concept: since 2016 the ever-growing group has launched several stylish venues across Europe, in destinations ranging from Berlin and Munich to Hamburg and Ibiza. Look out for THE BUTCHER Milan, IZAKAYA Milan and THE DUCHESS Milan in 2020. Eliyahoo: ’I’m proud that my Amsterdam-born concepts have evolved into internationally acclaimed brands; people visit Amsterdam to eat at places like MOMO or THE BUTCHER.’
Wherever the city and whatever the concept: all locations have different characters as well as different dishes: that is the beauty of the ‘Entourage’ vision. THE ENTOURAGE GROUP always ensures new venues are adapted to their local culture yet simultaneously offer something new. Eliyahoo carefully evaluates the energy of a particular city, the available sites, and what’s missing in a certain metropolis before deciding on the direction his concept will take.
From Amsterdam to the capitals of Europe and beyond, THE ENTOURAGE GROUP is setting the new standard for modern, high-end hospitality.
