Ducasse, Alain Ducasse Invites You to a Killer View Dubbed Skyfall

From the Delano with love. No, Mr. Bond, I want you to lounge.

Alain Ducasse must have a fondness for James Bond. His new lounge at the top of the Delano will be called Skyfall, a nod to the Daniel Craig flick with the same name. Mandalay Corp. trademarked the name.

New information on the lounge that replaces Mix calls for 180-degree views of the city and "an evolving nightlife experience that gradually increases in tempo as the night progresses." Guests will be able to watch the sunset and then catch deejays spinning electro music after 10 p.m.

Skyfall Lounge will have overhead decorative lighting and "unique seating areas." The existing stairs and upper mezzanine will be removed for a new VIP raised area that overlooks the lounge. No word on whether the bathroom stalls with their windows overlooking Las Vegas will remain.

The $2.7 million renovation of the Ducasse’s shuttered Mix and its neighboring lounge makes way for Rivea, his Saint-Tropez and London restaurants. Mix, which shuttered June 1, earned a Michelin star in both 2008 and 2009.

Rivea plans to dish out French- and Italian-influenced fare in a space filled with white and maritime blues. The food markets of Provence and Italy influence the menu from executive chef Bruno Riou.

Ducasse announced the restaurant change last year in April when the Delano and its new batch of restaurants were under construction. The first Rivea location sits inside the Byblos Saint-Tropez hotel and Rivea London debuted last year in May at the Bulgari Hotel.
