Gilles & Boissier Refines Hakkasan Las Vegas

It’s a safe bet Hakkasan Las Vegas will be a popular nightlife destination, as it’s right across the casino floor from the Poker Room at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Paris-based design firm Gilles & Boissier created a fresh iteration of Hakkasan’s signature aesthetic for the five-level Las Vegas outpost, using pockets of deep azure to set off the light and dark textures.
A modern Cantonese restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred chef Ho Chee Boon fills the first-floor main dining space. Private dining on the second floor offers a bird’s-eye view of the first floor’s dramatic latticework screen, known as the “Cage”. After dinner, guests can ascend to the third floor’s Ling Ling Club, where artists spin open-format DJ sets, or visit a separate Ling Ling Lounge with a more relaxed vibe and top-notch mixology.
“Hakkasan Las Vegas,” says COO Nick McCabe, “expresses the overarching design ethos of the Hakkasan brand, while elevating its core DNA to a previously unrealized degree. There is an evolution of the design as the elevation of the space changes and guests move through the various levels.”
From an entertainment perspective, the venue’s main draw is the nightclub on the fourth floor, where oversize VIP booths surround a dance floor serviced by headlining DJs such as Calvin Harris and Bob Sinclar. Adjacent to the main club lies the zenlike Chinoiserie pavilion, with its two-story water feature and lush indoor garden. A fifth-floor VIP area offers the perfect spot to see and be seen.
Hakkasan was founded in London in 2001 and has now established global locations including London Hanway Place, London Mayfair, Miami, Abu Dhabi, Mumbai, Dubai and New York.
