Design firm AB Concept has just unveiled the first CÉ LA VI in Hong Kong

Located in the top three floors of the new California Tower in the heart of the region’s entertainment district, Lan Kwai Fong, CÉ LA VI is at once a club, a restaurant and a rooftop bar. Conceived around a unique blend of passion, intrigue and Southeast Asian flavour, the brand seeks to deliver exceptional hospitality amid a stylish setting. Offering a concoction of imagination, flair and rhythm, the team at AB Concept have created a luxurious yet comfortable space that can easily transform from relaxed lounge area to hedonistic night club.

Guests are greeted at reception on the 25th floor and can easily walk through to the lounge/club area. The elegant bar features an antique backdrop with drop candles, and a granite counter is set off with perforated pony skin, which at night lights up to reveal a floral motif. Raised VIP areas surround the dance floor and a luscious mix of soft furnishings have been used, combining textures and patterns for a sumptuous atmosphere. Dark blue velvet sofas sit next to golden ottomans, with pops of teal and red making occasional appearances, as a feature wall of greenery transports guests to a tropical location.

On the lower level is the restaurant, which serves a selection of Asian-inspired dishes in a rustic yet tropical setting. The highlight of the dining room is most certainly the green chandelier that has been designed to accommodate exotic living plants. Gold gilded picture frames give the space an air of sophistication and sit next to a Balinese raw-cut wooden table, alluding to the delights of South East Asia. Stunning views of both the surrounding cityscape and the open kitchen can be garnered from the interior of the dining space as well.

Impressive views can be taken in from all three levels of Ce La Vi

These views continue in earnest up at the rooftop sky bar. Complete with Jacuzzi, the area houses a selection of plants to create an urban sanctuary away from the city. Outdoor materials such as wood decking, beige textured stone and mosaic patterns create a rustic edge, and the signature red can be seen in sun umbrellas and tiling. Representing the first of the international expansion, which will all take their design cues from the Hong Kong venue, the next AB Concept-designed CÉ LA VI is the renovation of the iconic Marina Bay Sands venue in Singapore, with venues in Taipei, Bangkok and Dubai on the way.
