Hospitality investment and management group Sunset  Hospitality Group will be expanding in Saudi Arabia and the UK in Q3 and Q4 2019 with eight new projects.

In the second half of 2019 the group will launch the Black Tap brand in Riyadh and Jeddah.

Antonio Gonzalez, CEO of Sunset Hospitality Group said: “We are on the right business path, and we will continue to accelerate our expansion across the Middle East to further solidify our presence. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia tops our list when looking at Middle East expansion plans.

“With 29 million residents and an annual potential growth rate of 3.3%, Saudi Arabia has the largest population in the GCC and is a great market to tap into, particularly its youth population who continue to become increasingly open to Western consumer trends,” he added.

Greek Restaurant Ammos and Azure Beach Club, currently operating at Rixos Premium JBR Dubai, will also open in Saudi, while Bahrain will see the launch of the acclaimed Stage nightclub.

Sunset Hospitality Group will also launch its latest concept Mood - Rooftop Lounge, in Dubai in addition to new brands as well as open additional outlets in 2020.
