Ghossoub believes that his background in marketing, real estate and media affords him expertise in developing and delivering diverse concepts from luxury fine dining and casual eateries to nightlife hot spots. Having spent four years at global communications company, MenaCom Group, he went on to found and manage his own talent agency in Dubai. In addition, he co-owned The Palladium Dubai and was a silent partner in several nightlife venues in the region. Now a partner in Jas Hospitality, Ghossoub has been responsible for bringing two concepts to Dubai. The Fumé Neighbourhood Eatery brand has outlets in Dubai Marina’s Pier 7 and Manzil, Downtown Dubai, while Qbara Restaurant Lounge and Bar is located in Wafi City.

Jas Hospitality strives to deliver great food, lively entertainment, and friendly, efficient service at all its outlets, and Ghossoub intends to further strengthen the company’s reputation throughout 2016.
