Hakkasan is an upscale, modern Chinese restaurant in the West End of London, England, at Hanway Place. The restaurant was created by Syra Khan and Alan Yau, also behind the Wagamama Japanese restaurant chain and the newer Yauatcha restaurant, also in London. The multi-million pound interior at the original Hakkasan was designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre who fused distinctly modern aesthetic with traditional Chinese motifs.


It has opened branches in Miami, Mumbai, New York City, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha.[1] In 2013, [2] Hakkasan formed a strategic partnership with Angel Management Group[3] creating their first nightclub located at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The five story 80,000 square foot venue holds close to 7,500 patrons and boasts performers such as Calvin Harris, Nervo and Tiësto.
