Mambo comes to Galle Face Hotel

Galle Face Hotel has partnered with Infini Concepts to launch their new King of the Mambo lounge and restaurant. Opened on 18 October with a grand, white-themed party, the Latino lounge-restaurant concept is inspired by the mambo dance movement that originated in Cuba and is styled in 1950s décor.

“The Galle Face Hotel has been in my family for generations and it gives me great pleasure to delve into our illustrious past and connect with the spirit of the hotel. We have had many famous guests and it is in honour of those who stayed with us in the 50’s when mambo was at its height of popularity. We are excited to introduce this concept,” said Galle Face Hotel Chairman Sanjeev Gardiner.

Dubai-based management company Infini Concepts has launched and managed several successful venues and brands across the world. This is their first in Sri Lankan venture, with two more planned over the next year.

Restaurant Management (Pvt) Ltd, established by the joint venture, will oversee the day-to-day operations of the venue.
