Acoustic paneling in the form of shoji screens along with upholstered seating, and secluded dining areas help to control sound. The rich walnut, exotic marble, intricate tile patterns, and brass accents give the space a luxurious feel, while plaster walls and simple pottery give it a sense of naturalness.
Finishes include luxurious velvets, exotic stones, custom tile work, plaster walls, bronze and brass meshwork. The tactility of the space and subtle nods of Chinese culture resonates with guests.
The space is designed to accommodate multiple types of gatherings and provide a variety of settings. From large private gatherings, to quiet intimate dining, to lively socializing at the bar.
