Solutions Leisure Group has announced a management takeover of West 14th Steakhouse this week, located at Dukes The Palm, A Royal Hideaway Hotel, part of the Barceló Hotel Group and luxury hospitality and real estate developer Seven Tides.
“Paul and his team impressed us with their market awareness, creativity and sheer passion for this business. They have some very exciting plans for West 14th and we are confident that the venue is in very capable hands,” says Abdulla bin Sulayem, CEO, Seven Tides.
An all-day dining favourite, West 14th has become much more than its original steakhouse positioning. The New York loft-inspired waterfront restaurant-bar is nestled between the hotel and residences and offers a selection of prime cuts, including Australian and Japanese beef and Kobe Wagyu, light bites, breakfast, aperitifs and shisha on the outdoor terrace deck.
Working closely with the Dukes The Palm and Seven Tides teams, Solutions Leisure will take control of the operations and marketing for the next six weeks, before the venue undergoes an exciting revamp during Ramadan to introduce an all-new beach bar concept.
The Solutions Leisure portfolio, which comprises eight brands and 10 venues across Dubai, boasts a decade of experience.
Paul Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of Solutions Leisure Group, says, “Following our international expansion in 2019 and the global events of 2020, we’re fortunate to have learnt a lot in a short amount of time in terms of market demand and partnership alignment. In, what can only be described as, a tumultuous year, we are excited to open new doors with partners that align with our ethos, values and creative positioning.”
He continues, “This new chapter with Dukes The Palm and Seven Tides will bring a breath of fresh air to the Palm Jumeirah, and we look forward to embarking on this next journey with such dynamic, innovative and driven enterprise that share in our vision for trust, and our passion for people-centric venue and experience design.”
