This man is Zammel Ezzeddine and he is smiling because he had a superb opening last night at The Harbour Club—Restaurant and Bar.
Zammel is the manager of The Harbour Club which is located in the Fujairah International Marine Club building on the corniche.
He comes from Tunisia and he has been living in the UAE for the last four years studying every step in the hospitality industry. For the last five months he has been living in Fujairah appointing staff and building the team.
Zammel’s team was run off their feet last night as hundreds of people were present to celebrate this new addition to the range of bars and restaurants and this new feature designed to build a sense of community in Fujairah.
Drinks and finger food were ‘on the house’ between 6 and 9 last night and the restaurant was buzzing. As the place has been open for a few weeks there were many that looked part of the ‘Club’. Musicians did their bit to enhance the party atmosphere and some on the bar were showing off their skills as they spun the bottles and poured the drinks.
The first impressions were overwhelmingly positive. People commented on the versatility of the place with the different types of tables, seats and settings. While it was too hot for sitting outside, people could see how good the outside area will be as the weather cools.
One or two thought the prices for drinks and food were a bit steep but they reckoned if they drove to Dubai to enjoy places of similar quality they would be forking out much more in transport.
Zammel has established a Happy Hour (two hours between 6-8) every evening and a Quiz Night on Fridays at 8.00pm. He is eager to develop the ‘Terrace Bar’ outside and is already taking bookings from companies and private guests to use the ‘Function Room’. No wonder he has a smile on his face.
