New F&B concepts slated for The Pearl-Qatar
UDC partners with UrbaCon and Palma Hospitality Group for F&B concepts
Qatari shareholding company and master developer of The Pearl-Qatar United Development Company (UDC) has signed a lease agreement with Palma Hospitality Group to launch a series of F&B concepts and a family entertainment centre.
These will be launched over a total area of 7000 square metres in the town centre, Medina Centrale, at The Pearl-Qatar.
The agreement was signed by The Pearl-Qatar general manager for retail leasing Ehab Kamel and Palma Hospitality Group executive manager Charbel Mhanna, and will see the opening of two restaurants, La Casa 28 and Debs w Reman, as well as a coffee shop, Mokarabia.
While La Casa 28 derives its culinary influences from around the Mediterranean region, Debs W Reman focuses on Levantine cuisine, and Mokarabia supplies high-quality coffee blends.
In addition, the entertainment centre, Metropolis, will comprise another five F&B offerings: Saladworks, Earl of Sandwich, Camille’s Ice cream, Mister Pizza, and a children's café and entertainment outlet.
“The concepts which will be brought by Palma Hospitality Group are strategic to the building of an interesting and diversified retail mix which suits the budding spirit of Medina Centrale, dubbed as the Island’s town centre," said Kamel.
He added UDC's focus at this stage of developing The Pearl-Qatar is to secure a dynamic retail mix for Medina Centrale. Kamel continued: "With commercial spaces of about 56,000 square metres ready, we are aggressively pursuing our expansion plans by attracting global brands to open outlets here.”
Mhanna commented: "The Pearl-Qatar is a tourist landmark and a unique lifestyle destination not only for Qatar but also the whole region, and we are confident that our hybrid concepts will contribute to the island’s reputation as a destination for tourists and entertainment-seekers alike.”
Palma Hospitality Group has recently revealed ambitious expansion plans that include opening and managing international hospitality brands in Medina Centrale, Mall of Qatar and other retail zones around Doha. The group currently operates Damasca, an authentic Syrian restaurant in Souq Waqif.
