Back in August we announced on our blog that we had acquired celebrity chef David Myers and his 3 new Dubai restaurants, Bleu Blanc, BASTA!, and Poppy. Since then, the Katch team has expanded, the word is spreading, and the clients are calling.
Ranging from F&B and hospitality to luxury high-end fashion, international brands and local heroes, Katch has always been adept at getting under the skin of a brand and bringing out its true colours. The last few weeks have seen some big names, hidden gems, and UAE-based brands get in touch looking for Katch International’s disruptive digital and design services, communication expertise, PR and events experience.
As 2017 draws to a close, we have added more established clients to our impressive portfolio, including; F&B concepts Gursha, Azure Beach, Riviera Seafood Grill, and Brazilian churrascaria Fogo de Chao, nightlife venues BASE and 1 OAK, e-commerce fashion giants Elabelz, and hospitality venues Ramada Plaza Jumeirah Beach in JBR, and Ramada Hotel & Suites, Sharjah.
Gursha, the Palm Jumeirah’s beach haven of healthy Ethiopian cuisine, has set out to make its mark, and with a beach front location on some of the hottest real estate in the world, shisha, ladies’ nights, parties, and the ultimate chilled vibe, we have no doubt that we can help make that happen.
Elabelz.com has accomplished more in under 2 years, than most companies aspire to do in 10! Growing from 18 to 170 employees in 12 months, and expanding to incorporate 7 different countries in the region, the online fashion store has definitely begun to make a statement. Described as the ‘Amazon of fashion for the region,’ Elabelz has teamed up with Katch international to begin the company’s next steps. If you haven’t already, check out the more than 30,000 products on their website and make the move the rest of the region has embraced, the rise of the online fashion store.
Okay, so we all know there’s plenty of hotels in the country and we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to where to choose for the next brunch or celebration, but there’s nothing quite like the residents’ favourite Ramada Plaza Jumeirah Beach in JBR and its sister hotel Ramada Hotel & Suites, Sharjah. Famed Brazilian restaurant Fogueira offers over 20 different cuts of meat and stylish brunches, along with local bar Speakeasy, family-friendly Shores, and the new Sama shisha lounge on the 35th floor offering a place to while the day away with breath-taking views in the JBR location. Ramada Hotel & Suites, Sharjah is ideal for a family getaway and located opposite Sahara Centre – one of the biggest malls in the region – and close to Sharjah Expo, Al Mamzar Beach, Sharjah city centre, Sharjah Lagoon, and Corniche Road.
Riviera Seafood Grill is Dubai’s piece of Mediterranean coastline in the Arabian Gulf. From the shores of Nice on the Cote d’Azur, and Spanish sands of the beaches of Valencia, to the Greek archipelagos, Riviera Seafood Grill has curated its menu with seafood delicacies, complemented with the choicest European grape. Riviera offers its guests an elegant, beachfront fine-dining experience with washed white and light blue interiors, and a sophisticated ambiance.
Rivalling even the most spectacular international venues, Katch International has teamed up with Bulldozer Group – the masterminds behind Novikov, Sass Café, Toko, Cipriani Dubai and VIP room – and taken charge of home-grown ‘superclub’ BASE and internationally acclaimed venue 1 OAK. BASE, the number one permanent open-air club in the country is putting Dubai’s nightlife scene on the world map with a leading line-up of world-renowned artists and performers including Jennifer Lopez and Tyga earlier this month, while celebrity haven 1 OAK has become a staple amongst the international elite in cities such as New York and Los Angeles and returned to the UAE as a pop-up for the Abu Dhabi Race Weekend for the fifth year in a row.
Fogo de Chão, the internationally renowned, authentic, Brazilian, fine-dining Churrascaria is set to add another high-profile location to its established repertoire of restaurants. With acclaimed venues across North, Central, and South America including cities like New York, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Sao Paolo, Miami, and Los Angeles, the uniquely sophisticated churrasco experience is opening its second Middle Eastern location and first in Dubai, in DIFC, next month.
Azure Beach adds a uniquely mellow feel to Dubai’s JBR Walk, inviting guests to step through its doors and be instantly transported to daytime serenity and night-time soul. It has a funky, chilled, and relaxing vibe, and offers any group an exceptional option for a lounging sunbed brunch, cocktails from mixologist extraordinaire Ryan Fourie, shisha on the terrace, fusion Asian cuisine, an infinity pool, and fantastic views of the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Eye. Located in the heart of Dubai and set amongst crystal blue waters, Azure Beach is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It’s an exciting time for Katch, and with even more partnerships to be announced as we kick-off 2018, the journey is just beginning.
