World Renowned Bartender Brings Exclusive Cocktails to Raffles Seychelles

On April 2nd, bartender Jad Ballout in collaboration with local beverage brand, Takamaka, will take over the bar at Raffles Seychelles’ Takamaka Terrace. The event will kick off at 6 pm until 8 pm and will be complemented with live entertainment.

Jad Ballout is a global award-winning bartender famed for his creativity and craftsmanship. After he led Central Station to win Best Bar in Middle East & Africa for two years in the World’s 50 Best Bars award and also won No.26 & No. 27 on the World’s 50 Best Bars ranking, he opened, Electric Bing Sutt. Electric Bing Sutt was heavily affected by the Beirut Explosion of August 4th, 2020, same as the whole building where it is located made it impossible for Electric Bing Sutt to reopen in the same spot, and that’s where their new venture of Jad Ballout was born, Dead End Paradise, a Hedonist Tiki Dive bar “that may not exist tomorrow” located only 500 meters from the explosion site in a dead end alley which has opened its doors in April 2021. Dead End Paradise was voted No. 68 on the World’s 50 Best Bars in 2021, No.80 in 2022 and TOP 10 best new international cocktail bars by tales of the cocktails.

Guests of Raffles Seychelles will be able to indulge in his world-class creations under a colourful Seychelles sunset at the Takamaka Terrace. In addition to the special event, Ballout will also develop sixteen new cocktails to be added to the menus at the resort. This means guests can enjoy his creations even after the event, in the shade of the palm trees at Raffles Seychelles.
