ON THE COVER OF OUR FIRST ISSUE IS MARBELLA’S SWANKIEST NEW LEBANESE RESTAURANT, OCCO MARBELLA
After years of mastering the Lebanese cuisine in Sweden, owners Meysam Javan and Eric Ebbing who now reside in Marbella spoke to us about their inspiration and their vision of social dining in Puerto Banús.
Meysam (owner of the already existing Occo Malmö) and Eric (Project Manager and founder) came together with two other entrepreneurs to bring Marbella something they thought was missing.
«Marbella is developing positively every year… and I didn’t want to miss this opportunity. So, I contacted my former companion Meysam Javan, who is both the founder and owner of Occo Malmö in Sweden. My job was to build the best possible team and according to me, he is the best in the industry. He is cautious, very intuitive and the best suited to help me take my vision further. He also handpicked almost all the staff and moved to Marbella» Eric declares.
The partners promise a truly delicious oriental experience including a rooftop terrace, world-class cocktails served in frosted glasses, a unique fusion of Lebanese cuisine with a European twist, belly dancers and a DJ that will raise the mood after dinner.
They want their guests to enjoy the concept of social dining between friends and family.
Renowned interior designer Martin Ranelid has chosen unique details to give guests a holistic experience of the likes of a night out in Beirut.
