ROBERTO CAVALLI GROUP AND PRAGMA GROUP ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF A CAVALLI CAFFE’ IN BEIRUT
Roberto Cavalli is pleased to announce that he will be in Beirut on the 4th of January 2013 to celebrate the opening of the Cavalli Caffè.
With an inside capacity of around eighty guests, the exclusive location will be situated in the Karagulla Building, within the immediate proximity of the Beirut Souks, the business district and the famous nightlife district overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
In the Cavalli Caffè a boutique shop will offer the possibility to purchase a wide range of imported Italian delicacies, such as chocolate gift boxes, Cavalli Reserve red Wine, Cavalli Premium Italian Vodka and Grappa.
The Cavalli Caffè will offer a mouthwatering selection of the finest Italian cuisine. Suitable for morning brunches, trendy lunches, lounged afternoons and glamorous evenings, it will attract the most important clients of the elite Lebanese society. Cavalli’s signature creative touch can be seen in the zebra and giraffe prints, in the fashionable chairs and sofas, in the crystal lamps as well as other striking details of the contemporary interior.
The Cavalli Caffè experience finds its roots in the historical Cavalli Caffè Giacosa, located in Via Tornabuoni in Florence, an antique shop founded in 1815, which was a meeting place for a refined and noble Florentine clientele, which Roberto Cavalli brought back to life, preserving the elegance of the setting.
“Experiencing the enjoyment of exquisite food and surrounded by pleasant company, sipping a delicious cup of Italian coffee… this is the Cavalli Caffè philosophy. My desire was to transmit my deep passion for beauty and sensuality in a hospitality project … I believe Beirut will rapidly become a big fan of Cavalli Caffè”, said Roberto Cavalli, Chairman of Roberto Cavalli Group.
“We are delighted to be expanding the Cavalli Caffè concept into Beirut with our patron Roberto Cavalli. He is truly and inspiration to us all and Cavalli Caffè in Beirut is the epitome of his style and charisma which is reflected in the high quality ingredients and design of the dishes, along with the decor and ambiance of the venue, bespoke music, and boutique offering. We are very excited to extend the Cavalli lifestyle experience in Beirut and foresee much future collaboration in this vibrant city” said Joe Tabet, Chairman of Pragma Group.
The Roberto Cavalli Group already operates a Cavalli Club in Dubai, the Just Cavalli Club in Milan, the Cavalli Caffè Giacosa in Florence and the latest Cavalli Caffè in New Delhi. The next Cavalli Caffè openings are expected to be in Kuwait City, Doha and Shanghai. The opening of a Cavalli Club in Miami is scheduled for Spring 2013.
