Founder, Samer Hamadeh comments on the new opening; “Ever since Stereo Arcade, JBR has been a special place to me and I always felt ‘The Beach’ was missing that “nightlife” vibe. I think we’re about to bring that effect into the mix, along with our 5 amazing neighbors at the Pavilion. JBR is in for a real treat, that’s a promise”
