When you think of high-end hospitality in terms of hotels, tasty dishes, wines, bars and lounges, think about THE ENTOURAGE GROUP. They are based in Amsterdam but poised with changing the face of hospitality worldwide. They do this with their cutting-edge food and drinks concepts.
The brain behind THE ENTOURAGE GROUP, Mr. Yossi Eliyahoo, was voted as the Hospitality Entrepreneur of the year in 2015. He started the concept in 2008 when he launched MOMO, a high-end Asian-fusion restaurant, bar and lounge. It didn’t take long before this concept was widely admired as it attracted people from all walks of life, both locally and internationally, people who love being treated nicely.
The success story doesn’t end here, as he and his associates quickly thought about extending their borders by creating other A-list branches/brands outside of the Netherlands. Their aim is not just to bring something new to these countries when it comes to hospitality, but to adapt their crisp methods to the local customs and dishes.
How they decide on where to open new branches
Because of how fast they became popular, almost every tourist hub around the world wanted a taste of them. But they recognize that every city has their own peculiar needs in terms of foods and drinks. According to Mr. Eliyahoo, their ‘vision’ is all about giving people in each city exactly what they need, not just what they, as the Entourage Group, want.
The Group carefully analyzes each city that has the potential, to find out what is missing before drawing the plan of what their concept will be for that specific place. This method has led to numerous success stories and awards.

Here are some impressions of these beautiful locations.
Where can you find the different locations of the Entourage Group?
Munich (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Ibiza (Spain) and Berlin (Germany) are just five cities across Europe that they’ve settled in. In these 5 cities, they boast an amazing 14 venues where their restaurants are located with over 700 staffs. Consequently, a great number of people consistently go to their restaurants to try out the famous food.
But why did they choose to start with these five cities?
Take Munich for example, it is the third largest city after Berlin and Hamburg. It has a population of over 6 million people and they have a good standard of living. Munich is also known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration, a time marked by very high tourism.
Amsterdam is the most populated city in the Netherlands, with over 8 million citizens. Being the capital of the Netherlands, it also remains the commercial capital as it houses 7 of the world’s 500 largest companies. Tourists and businessmen are especially fond of this city. It is clear that THE ENTOURAGE GROUP has taken ‘proximity to market’ into consideration before situating their brand here.
Thus, the five European cities listed above are tourist hubs. Furthermore, they are perfect locations to host corporate events, annual meetings, and company celebrations. This makes it attractive not only for the individual but also for the corporate environment.
What to Expect
According to the Group, 2020 will see THE ENTOURAGE GROUP spread their tentacles to the City of Milan in Italy. This is just one of the many branches that will be opened for business across Europe in the coming years.
