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
About THE ENTOURAGE GROUP
The brainchild of creative entrepreneur Yossi Eliyahoo ‘Hospitality Entrepreneur of 2015’, THE ENTOURAGE GROUP’s story began in Amsterdam in 2008 with the launch of MOMO Restaurant, Bar & Lounge, a sophisticated Asian-fusion restaurant, bar and lounge that immediately established itself as the go-to venue for local and international tastemakers. The success story continued with the creation of A-list favourites such as IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, MR PORTER, THE DUCHESS, LALO Contemporary Mexican Kitchen & Bar, COCO Lounge & Bar, Do Not Disturb, THE BUTCHER, THE BUTCHER Social Club, THE BUTCHER On Wheels, Bepita, SHIRKHAN and Toni Loco.
From gourmet burgers at THE BUTCHER to chic refined Japanese cuisine at IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar and Belle Époque inspired dining at the awarded by Michelin THE DUCHESS and Mumbai street food at SHIRKHAN. THE ENTOURAGE GROUP is not just creating restaurants, the group creates experiences that unite individuals. ‘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 slick hospitality and design of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP: since 2016 the ever-growing group has launched several stylish venues across Europe, in destinations ranging from Berlin and Munich to Ibiza, Barcelona and Dubai. Upcoming cities include Milan. Eliyahoo: ’I’m proud that my Amsterdam-born concepts have evolved into internationally acclaimed brands; people visit Amsterdam to eat at places like MOMO Restaurant, Bar & Lounge 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.
