Leave it to Billionaire’s renowned entertainment experience to mix things up.
We can hardly keep up with Saudi Arabia’s rapidly evolving dining and entertainment scene and, this time around, the action is taking place in the capital, courtesy of Flavio Briatore’s luxury hospitality brand Billionaire. The glamorous Riyadh outpost, which has already seen huge success as a restaurant, is pioneering a new kind of entertainment, with the introduction of Billionaire’s electrifying and dramatically orchestrated performances.
Incidentally, Billionaire Riyadh is the first and only venue in the city to offer a fine dining experience paired with world-class entertainment, translating into an unrivalled experience for guests. The new location is a follow-up from the success of Billionaire Dubai and Billionaire Porto Cervo and, by bringing this new kind of inspirational dining experience to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is contributing to Vision 2030 in order to position the country as a premier tourist destination. To kickstart an unmissable line-up of special events, Billionaire Riyadh collaborated with MdlBeast for an exclusive sold-out event with legendary global DJ, David Guetta. A roaring success, the evening was the first of its kind since the venue opened earlier this year. As for what’s to come? More entertainment experiences from the masters of extravaganza.
A multidimensional playground, with the performances very much at the core of the experience, Billionaire Riyadh has handpicked the most talented singers and dancers to create a thrilling spectacle that adopts a sophisticated approach to luxury entertainment. Artistic Production Director Montserrat (Montse) Moré brings incredible experience to her new role, having worked with iconic brands such as the Cirque du Soleil, Lío and Pacha in Ibiza. Today, she brings her artistic vision, boundless creativity and production know-how to the Billionaire Riyadh stage, creating an unforgettable experience for guests in the process.
Here, gastronomy reigns supreme with authentic and extraordinary food presented with an elegant and theatrical touch. Chef Sefik Senol oversees the ambitious menu of New-Asian and Italian dishes created exclusively for the Riyadh location, showcasing what happens when the finest ingredients are brought together. The New-Asian selections on the menu include lobster salad and short ribs with a galbi sauce in addition to sushi, sashimi, and the Billionaire brand’s signature maki rolls. Among the Italian offerings are house-made spinach-and-ricotta ravioli with butter and sage, Wagyu-beef carpaccio, and burrata with cherry tomatoes. Options from the open-view “Live Fire Grill” range from lamb chops and chicken to ribeye steak.
An impressive standalone building, Billionaire Riyadh features a spectacular sculpture-garden entrance and a multisensory interior designed by London-based firm, Sagrada. Inspired by the idea of a nocturnal adventure, the versatile setting strikes a balance between formality and casual ease. The venue’s majestic, high-ceilinged interior has been designed to the highest levels of bespoke luxury, extravagant fabrics and textures are mixed with bold combinations of rich reds, deep blues and warm golden browns to create a welcoming and refined environment. The impressive hidden stage, meanwhile, opens into the main dining area and becomes a focal point of the restaurant, offering guests the best view of the incredible performers on the stage.
Elsewhere, the 20-metre-long “Live Fire Grill” allows guests to observe the preparation of the meats, adding a flame-filled visual to the experience. Moreover, the venue’s fully equipped private spaces offer unparalleled versatility and discretion for business meetings or special occasions – spaces that seamlessly transition from the main dining area to reflect the progressive spirit of a contemporary Saudi Arabia. CEO Flavio Briatore is delighted to be bringing the full Billionaire experience to Riyadh, commenting, “Since launching at the start of 2021, Billionaire Riyadh has seen huge success and we feel that now is the right time to introduce the Billionaire experience, complete with the spectacular show. Featuring bold performances and unmatched talent, the performances will be adapted to be in line with, and in full respect of, Saudi Arabia’s culture. Saudi Arabia has become a sophisticated, modern metropolis with a vibrant vision, and we are proud to be the first venue in the country to offer this kind of entertainment.”
