If you thought the nightlife scene in the Middle East had died down in the post-pandemic era, think again. The industry is abuzz with innovative and ambitious concepts, so who better to guide us through the dark than the brilliant entrepreneurs behind them?
Rabih Fakhreddine has always had a passion for the food and entertainment industry, opening his first oasis of music and cuisine, Seven Sisters, in Beirut in 2015 and forming 7 Management soon after. He went on to develop 10 food, beverage and entertainment concepts, affirming his position as an F&B trendsetter.
For decades, B018, Beirut’s acclaimed “bunker,” has been calling all music and party lovers to an alluring nightlife scene.
Born in Lebanon, Rabih Fakhreddine graduated with a degree in business marketing from the American University of Beirut. Early in his career, he gained experience in the FMCG industry, including a prestigious position at British American Tobacco (BAT) as a manager of the Levant region. A visionary at heart, Fakhreddine stepped out of the corporate world to follow his passion for the food and entertainment industry. In 2015, he opened Seven Sisters, a luxurious oasis of music and cuisine within the heart of Beirut, and formed 7 Management soon after. The success of Seven Sisters acted as a catalyst for the development of the ten food, beverage and entertainment concepts that followed.
