Hakkasan Restaurant Las Vegas is located on the famous Las Vegas Strip at the MGM Grand. The brand, in town, is notorious for their nightclub next door and the client wanted to elevate the level of exposure of the restaurant on the casino floor, as well as expand their beverage program to take advantage of their already heavily visited venue. The design focused on the entrance experience and expanding the bar area.

JoyceLynn Lagula’s design experience while at Wilson Associates.
Among the sea of your typical casino venues and active slot machines, the entry signage to the restaurant is elegant, yet noticeably separate from the nightclub entrance. The entry portals were added and creates a contemporary processional experience. The alternating arches and greenery set up a rhythm drawing the guest to the host stand inside.
Expanding the bar area to include high top tables with featured lighting allowed more capacity at the bar for guests waiting for a table or stopping in for a drink. Updating the bar stool fabrics with more brightness and contrast became a simple move with a high impact on the contemporary mood of the space.
