THE MAN WHO FOLLOWS HIS HEART WEE TENG WEN,FOUNDER
& MANAGING PARTNER, LO & BEHOLD GROUP
BLAZING THE TRAIL
Since co-founding Loof, Singapore’s first standalone rooftop bar in 2005, Wee’s impact on the industry only continues to deepen; the managing partner of The Lo & Behold Group now manages an iconic portfolio of restaurants, bars, hotels, and a members’ club that is united by his vision. Through well loved brands such as The White Rabbit, Tanjong Beach Club, The Warehouse Hotel, Straits Clan and more, Wee hopes to inject more soul, fun, and lovability into Singapore’s lifestyle and hospitality scene.
The group’s long-term goal is to deliver best-in-class concepts and experiences that will set the standard in the region and beyond. Most notably, the jointly-owned Odette (co-owned with chef Julien Royer) has continually impressed, with their recent crowning of three Michelin stars and the title of Asia’s Best Restaurant. Wee promises more collaborative cross-industry concepts that will expand the group’s hospitality offerings in the near future. Several existing venues in the portfolio will also undergo transformations or expansions to keep guests delighted and engaged.
THE OM FACTOR
“Our people are our greatest asset. I believe that our approach of following our hearts instead of trends has been vital to the longevity of our businesses. We always start with the ‘why’; secure a location we love, then throw in a generous amount of imagination and magic to create fresh concepts that work for this market. If I had to boil it all down, these would be the key ingredients to our success – unique ideas delivered in great locations, brought to life by a talented and hard-working team.”
