Cassio — Hong Kong, China
Hong Kong has seen the opening of a slew of interesting restaurants recently, with one of the most creative designed by the Italian architect Fabrizio Casiraghi for the same team behind Hong Kong’s dragon-i nightclub.
This is the first project in the city for the Paris-based designer who has transformed the second floor of a building in Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong entertainment district into a sleek 1950s French Riviera-inspired music lounge and tapas-style restaurant.
‘I think this is something that was missing in Hong Kong: a contemporary place with a vintage twist,” he explains.
Casiraghi’s rigorous architectural training is clearly showcased with interiors that offer a seamless blend of contemporary dining, a sleek club lounge, and a generous sized outdoor cocktail-bar terrace brimming with foliage.
The distinctive European aesthetic features a muted palette of bamboo, brushed brass, yellow onyx, and bottle green lacquer complemented by custom-design vintage-style furniture, and retro-style lighting including a colourful modern chandelier inspired by the work of the Italian architect Carlo Mollino.
Meanwhile, the contemporary Spanish tapas menu offering the likes of courgette flowers stuffed with mushroom and Alaska crab, alongside a creative cocktail list, comes courtesy of a partnership with London’s Barrafina. Music-wise, expect a professional mix from R&B, hip-hop and disco to Latin Jazz and salsa.
