Seven Management’s regional recognition has long been established for its uniqueness and creativity in connecting with diverse audiences through providing highly memorable dining and entertainment experiences. Led by Rabih Fakhreddine, a group of young, dynamic visionaries came together and set the roots of Seven Management in Beirut, Lebanon. Today, our brands are highly regarded across the Middle East: Seven Sisters, Antika, February 30, B018.DXB, The Theater, Kahwet Beirut, El Kbeer and Sayf.
Situated in the heart of Hamra in 2011, Beirut’s forever alive entertainment hub, Faces was the perfect stepping stone for the first pillar, a dual concept allowing for a wider audience reach from daytime café lovers to night pub crawlers. Named after the faces of clients framed across the expansive “memory wall”, Faces has established itself as a place where you “leave a little bit of yourself behind”.
The Hamra journey continued in 2012 into “Big Shot”, Beirut’s first fully dedicated R&B and Hip Hop bar. In the same year, the legendary “February 30” came along, a wacky resto-pub with crazy vibes, the funkiest of cocktails and food, complete with the hippest of music.
2013 brought on Uruguay Street’s “Check Point Charlie”, a Berlin Cold War inspired venue with graffiti littered walls and a dazzling reflective bar, paying ode to the Berlin Wall crosspoint with themed food and drinks.
The 1980’s made a dazzling return in 2014 with “Walkman” a resto-bar with an 80’s vibe crafted into every element, a nostalgic return to that unforgettable colorful spirit.
Though 2014 brought back the 80’s and the ongoing dazzle of the rest of the brands, it also marked the official birth of 7 Management. But this was just the beginning of our story.
