The client wanted to create a fresh offering for the restaurant, in keeping with its reputation as one of Melbourne’s most premium & traditional Chinese restaurants. The front bar gave the restaurant the opportunity to appeal to a new market, and create some excitement & anticipation for its long list of existing, loyal clientele.

The key requirement for the new bar was to ensure it felt as though it had always been there – integrated into the existing restaurant ambience and a space which was intimate, with gestures to traditional Chinese & oriental design. Integration of some timber screening & glazed brick tiles from the previous lounge space were also required to be utilised within the space. A modern bar to a very authentic Chinese restaurant which adds a new dining experience for all guests.
