Roberto Santiago of the Famous Manaira Shopping

In the capital of Paraíba, João Pessoa, one must already know one of the concert halls that is among the largest in the city – Domus Hall. Recently, in November 2016, she completed seven years providing much fun to local citizens, and visitors as well. The entrepreneur responsible for the creation is the 58-year-old paraiban from the capital, Roberto Santiago.

Not by chance, Domus Hall is located on the roof of the largest commercial center of the state of Paraíba, the Manaíra Shopping – between the center and the beaches of the north coast of João Pessoa – which is owned by Roberto Santiago as well. The concert hall was inaugurated in 2009, on the 7th of November. The band that debuted the modern structure, acclimatized and with updated sound equipment and a great sound insulation was the sertaneja Zezé Di Camargo & Luciano.

The house of shows is designed to be large, it is shaped like a nightclub with plenty of space, or else a great theater for musical shows. There are two floors – in the mezzanine there are single and private cabins for ten people, lounge music and access to the dressing rooms; since the bottom has the option of sheltering tables and chairs or it may be clue, it all depends on the type of each event that happens. About four thousand people sit or ten thousand people stand at Domus Hall.

As a good visionary that is, with this venture Roberto Santiago intends to attract to João Pessoa great national and international artists of diverse musical styles – samba, MPB, axé, rock, reggae, rap, sertanejo, among others. So much so that several singers of expression have already appeared on the stage of the house of shows – including, Ana Carolina and Jorge Mário da Silva, the popular Seu Jorge.

But do not stop there, the Domus Hall is also available for Stand-ups, presentations, weddings, graduations, fairs and private events. The opening hours are from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 10pm and Sundays from 1pm to 10pm.

As for his developments… the Paraguayan as well as owner of Domus Hall, also owns the Mall that houses the show house – the Manaíra Shopping – and Mangabeira Shopping. Both are modern and well-engineered. The first was inaugurated in 1989, the second is more recent, opened the doors at the end of 2014. The two, however, brought to João Pessoa economic and social development. The areas surrounding the buildings were valued and many companies were attracted to the region.

Roberto Santiago has always stood out in the field of business for his ability to see a good opportunity – the famous visionary entrepreneur – that explains so many good bets in the business world.
