Middle East F&B leaders, Solutions Leisure, joins forces with DUKES The Palm, A Royal
Hideaway Hotel and Seven Tides to lead all-new chapter for iconic New York West 14th

The UAE’s most awarded F&B group and pioneers of the approachable dining, nightlife and
entertainment scene, Solutions Leisure Group, has announced its management takeover of the
much-loved West 14th Steakhouse this week, located at Dukes The Palm, A Royal Hideaway
Hotel, part of the Barcelo Hotel Group and luxury hospitality and real estate developer, Seven

“Paul and his team impressed us with their market awareness, creativity and sheer passion for
this business. They have some very exciting plans for West 14th and we are confident that the
venue is in very capable hands,” said Abdulla bin Sulayem, CEO, Seven Tides.

An all-day dining favourite, West 14th has become much more than its original steakhouse
positioning. Boasting, arguably, the best views on the Palm Jumeirah, the New York loft-inspired
waterfront restaurant-bar is nestled between the hotel and residences, making a name for itself
over the past decade with its glittering Arabian Gulf views and mouthwatering menu. Offering a
selection of prime cuts, including Australian and Japanese beef and Kobe Wagyu, light bites,
breakfast, aperitifs and shisha on the outdoor terrace deck, this versatile venue has been a
staple of the Dubai culinary scene.

Working closely with the Dukes The Palm and Seven Tides teams, Solutions Leisure will take
control of the operations and marketing for the next six weeks, before the venue undergoes an
exciting revamp during Ramadan to introduce an all-new beach bar concept. The Solutions
Leisure portfolio, which comprises of eight brands and 10 venues across the Dubai emirate, is
the most heavily awarded group in the Middle East to date. With a decade of experience in
Dubai, the group has evolved from humble beginnings to pioneer the lifestyle entertainment
sector, recognized for its success in creating approachable luxury dining and nightlife
experiences that focus on the customer journey alone.

Paul Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of Solutions Leisure Group, said, “Following our international
expansion in 2019 and the global events of 2020, we have been fortunate to have learnt a lot in
a short amount of time in terms of market demand and partnership alignment. In, what can only
be described as, a tumultuous year, we are excited to open new doors with partners that align
with our ethos, values and creative positioning.”

He continues, “This new chapter with Dukes The Palm and Seven Tides will bring a breath of
fresh air to the Palm Jumeirah, and we look forward to embarking on this next journey with
such dynamic, innovative and driven enterprise that share in our vision for trust, and our passion
for people-centric venue and experience design.”
