Now shuttered on the 64th floor of the Delano Las Vegas, miX Restaurant and miX Lounge will be revived this fall as Rivea, featuring French- and Italian-influenced cuisine from chef Alain Ducasse and a whole new look for both spaces.
The latest plans call for an estimated construction budget of $2,825,707 to revamp a total of 14,624 square feet. In the lounge, the emphasis will be less on "nightclub" and making more of the views from around the central bar. New decorative lighting fixtures are on their way and a series of "unique" seating areas. The current upper mezzanine will be removed to build a raised VIP area that overlooks the lounge.
Inside the Rivea restaurant, new seating configurations will completely change the layout of the room. One wall will become a new focal-point, designed to "simulate the sea." The stairway up to the mezzanine will be removed and the space will be closed for future use.
Also, a 1,367-square-foot private dining room will be created inside a north facing storage room offering up a whole new direction of views, alongside the existing legendary vistas from the patios.
Already promised, a design palette of "white and maritime blues" to reflect executive chef Bruno Riou's "simple, fresh plates" and dishes "inspired by the delectable food markets of Provence and Italy.
MiX received a Michelin star in both 2008 and 2009 before shuttering June 1.
