Hugo - The man behind the legend.
'Hugo Chetcuti has established himself as a pioneer within the local hospitality industry, with his acute business sense and sheer determination already evident from his initial acquisition of Footloose, almost 30 years ago. Since then, he has founded a succession of lucrative bars, restaurants and nightclubs situated in the thriving hub of the island's entertainment quarter. Along with the powerhouse brand 'Hugo's', some of these venues include Havana, Hugo's Lounge, Hugo's Pub, Shadow Lounge, Bacco by Hugo's, Club H, Soho Lounge, Native Bar & Diner, Hugo's Passion, Hugo's Middle East and 'Hugo's' flagship, Hugo's Terrace. In addition to these, Hugo's Burger Bar and Rocco Pizza Pasta will soon be the latest outlets to form part of an empire which has developed into a commodity offering value for money, hi-end quality, brilliant customer service, excellent food & drink and a unique style which has become synonymous with the man himself.
Hugo is also heavily immersed in developing a breakthrough boutique-hotel line by ignoring his industry's conventional wisdom, hewing instead to a quirky aesthetic producing accommodations unlike anything people have seen. This, coupled with its other amenities, will transform Hugo's into nothing less than a full-blown hospitality brand, one that delivers a seamless end-to-end experience for locals and tourists alike.
Ambition and a strong will to succeed, have always been at the forefront of all he does, however, Hugo's success has also been built on a foundation of loyalty and respect shown to his staff, thus resulting in a strong working relationship with his employees. This, coupled with a strong family bond which has seen both his sister Sheryl and brother Isaac forming a solid backbone in the company and now his son Luke following in his father’s footsteps, has aided Hugo to form a recipe of success which is revered by friends and competitors alike.
Hugo has now branched into providing his clientele with his own brand of wine, energy drink and water and, knowing Hugo, this is just the first step of a long line of products which extend the quality of Hugo’s even further.
Long live the legend and hence, so will our enjoyment of all things by Hugo’s !!'
