Famous Hong Kong restaurant Mott 32 has opened its first property within the USA…and it is ridiculously spectacular! This is definitely one of the most luxurious restaurant decors you will see this year!
The new Cantonese restaurant at the Palazzo, Mott 32, has perhaps one of the most luxurious interiors of any Las Vegas restaurants. Mott 32’s parent company Maximal Concepts brings a menu of dim sum at the bar and Peking duck on the menu, adding a dash of Las Vegas neon to space exquisitely designed by Joyce Wang.
The fusion of the two cultures, was Studio’s vision to celebrate the hedonism of the Vegas location whilst paying homage to the Chinese imperialism meets New York Industrialism aesthetic of the original Mott 32 in Hong Kong.
Alabaster bi-folding screens above the bar ledge allow for the flexibility of opening up and screening of the space from the casino. Semi-circular banquettes seating are arranged along the facade, with ribbed leather details at the back cushion and mohair upholstery on the seat cushion.
Diners walk up to the 11,400-square-foot restaurant come to a wrought iron fence surrounding the lounge with works from Hong Kong artist Joe Joe Ngai that include Chinese characters and birds. One of the works in the main dining room features Anna Wong, considered to be the first Hong Kong-Chinese American Hollywood movie star.
One corner of the lounge features a flocked and woven wallpaper from Sanderson, the oldest wallpaper designer in Great Britain, a tip of the hat to Hong Kong’s British heritage. On this pricey covering, a neon duck, a nod to Las Vegas. Stories like this play out throughout the restaurant.
The lounge features a long bar area as the centerpiece before diners walk into the main dining room past a wine cellar. Customers can see into the kitchen to watch barbecue cooking and ducks in the works.
The suspended canopy at the Bar & Lounge area is made of two layers of hundreds of stretched brass cables integrated with pendant lighting on a pulley mechanism.
Wang thinks of design as another way to tell the story of the restaurant, as well as the city. At its heart, industrial design with very Vegas touches such as a table made from a vintage roulette table in one of the private dining rooms and a feather boa draped across a chandelier.
In the main dining room, a massive chandelier hangs over a table with a large Chinese vase. Poured terrazzo floors, more of that $196,000 wallpaper, and Ngai’s drawings fill the space.
The chandelier marks the centre point from which the intimate dining areas emanate. Suspended over the Hong Kong, Vancouver and now Mott 32 Vegas venues; the chandelier’s chain language pays tribute to Hong Kong’s humble beginnings as a fishing village.
