Dakota Development designs SBE's Cleo Mediterráneo in LA’s h Club

SBE has reopened Cleo Mediterráneo Hollywood, the second location in Los Angeles of the culinary concept from SBE's Disruptive Group division. Located at the new h Club Los Angeles property, which was originally home to The Redbury Hotel, Cleo Hollywood joins the existing Cleo locations in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, The Bahamas, New York and Kuwait City.

Designed by Dakota Development, a division of SBE led by president Joe Faust, the restaurant seats 120 guests. The decor emulates iconic Mediterranean design with velvet and jewel tone colors, lush tapestries and statement fixtures, along with mixed metals and marble.

Cleo is a culinary brand of SBE, with seven existing international locations, and continuing to grow with nearly 10 locations in the pipeline for expansion globally to London, Paris, and the Middle East.
