Hakkasan San Francisco, a 10,000-square-foot haven for contemporary Chinoiserie and fine Chinese dining, sets a new benchmark with its elegant design and sophisticated sense of space. Hakkasan tapped internationally-renowned Parisian design firm, Gilles & Boissier, to create a rich and sensuous interior. Hakkasan features a 25-seat curved bar; two private dining rooms; a main dining area, enclosed in latticed “cage” partitions filled with Chinese screens; and a 50-seat Ling Ling Lounge, a signature feature of Hakkasan. The prominent materials in the space are stone, glass, steel, dark stained oak, Calcutta marble, colored mirrors, silks and embroidered leather. Gilles & Boissier’s careful utilization of lighting, organic textures and contrasting feminine and masculine elements help create a heady and evocative sensory experience.
