Our Story


Around the age of 18, I embarked on a backpacking adventure in the Middle East and found myself creating a home there between 1992 and 1997. From Israel i found myself traveling the world living paycheck to pay check. I took on various jobs to make ends meet, ensuring i could pay for my hostel accommodations and have a drink with fellow backpackers every night.


These experiences taught me a valuable lesson on the importance adapting to new environments, as we shared music, broke barriers, and immersed ourselves in a new perspective of life. It felt like beach bumming on one hand, but on the other it became my university.  To earn one day? What i wanted to do when i turned 50? And what to do until then? If i found a great job, what would i do with my earnings?

During these periods of contemplation i realized that we work to pay for things, only to start over again at the end of each month. That's when it hit me - Why not open a business that offers things i genuinely enjoy?  Thus, i started  thinking about the elements i wanted in my business : food, beer, social interaction, a unique international experience, and staying ahead of the times.

With each passing thought, the idea of opening my own back packers hostel took shape. I knew i couldn't work for someone else permanently, but i was willing to learn the ropes from someone else. Upon my return home , I worked in mom's takeaways, currently where our restaurant is. I bought the video store next door and that space became the birth of The Chilli bar.​
