The refurbishment plan of Les A's new restaurant, led by Tully Filmer, allowed for a separate entrance to be created on Hamilton Place - as well as entry via the casino's main building. The new entrance allows for a light, art deco-inspired space with black fittings set against a Dolomita white marble floor and staircase, all lit by wall sconces and chandeliers from the “Liaison” Kelly Wearstler range.
As you descend the staircase, the restaurant is accessible via panelled double doors and reveal a dining room modelled on the traditional English Gentleman’s clubs, while the design pays respect to the early nineteenth-century heritage of No. 5 Hamilton Place.
On the restaurant floor, central circular tables are set with bespoke wing-back leather club chairs and curvaceous padded corner booths are replete with deep red leather banquet seats.
The rear bar is topped with Portoro marble and fronted in Dolomita marble, while soft lighting grazes the front and a bronze profiled foot rail adds to the glamorous feel. The back bar bottle shelves and wine cabinets reveal the private dining room beyond, walled with rare vintage wines and champagnes. The bar is crowned with a bespoke painted triptych.
The family room adjacent to the main dining area adorn sliding partitions to separate this space and showcase ornate chandeliers from the Marioni “Josephine” range.
The restaurant itself is panelled with English walnut wood and gold Eglomise mirrored octagons, all set with bronze detailing. The dining room has a lofty feel due to a new substantial ceiling height, accentuated by fibrous plaster ceiling coffers. There is a custom molded plaster frieze highlighted with gold profiling and warm white glowing LEDs, gold and rock crystal wall lights and glamorous Tom Kirk Lighting chandeliers float elegantly over the dining room floor.
There is no age restriction to enter, as this area is not licensed for gaming.
