Hakkasan is an upscale, modern Chinese restaurant in the West End of London, England, at Hanway Place. The restaurant has eleven locations worldwide and was founded in 2001 by Syra Khan and Alan Yau, also behind the Wagamama Japanese restaurants and the newer Yauatcha restaurant, also in London. The multimillion-pound interior at the original Hakkasan was designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre who fused distinctly modern aesthetic with traditional Chinese motifs. In 2015, Hakkasan reopened it doors in Mayfair, London, forming a partnership with the Tsang Corporation with a fund of £10,000,000 investment, established by W Tsang.

Hakkasan has opened restaurants in Las Vegas, Mumbai, New York City, San Francisco, Miami, Abu Dhabi, Beverly Hills, Shanghai, 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. The five-story 80,000 square foot venue holds close to 7,500 patrons and boasts performers such as Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Nervo and Tiësto. In April 2017, a new Hakkasan restaurant named Ling Ling opened at Aker Brygge in Oslo, Norway.[4][5] In April 2018, Hakkasan entered in a partnership with Grupo Vidanta to open a chain of clubs in Mexico.[6]
