A Renovation at Chinese Restaurant Hakkasan Opens up the Dining Room at the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas Strip

The restaurant went through a renovation while it was closed during the pandemic

More than two months after Hakkasan returned from hibernation due to the pandemic at the MGM Grand, the five-story Cantonese restaurant with a nightclub on top shows off some of the changes made inside. The project from Tao Group Hospitality and Hakkasan Group, which merged in April, gives the space a new look. For example, the restaurant opened up the dining room so it flows better and removed a wall between the entrance and the dining room. A partition between the bar and dining room vanished, and new seating flanks the tables. The private dining room upstairs remains the same.

“With the reopening of Hakkasan … being our first significant endeavor since the acquisition of Hakkasan Group, we knew this was our opportunity to create a distinctive Hakkasan dining experience that could only be found in Las Vegas,” says Jason Strauss, co-CEO of Tao Group Hospitality. “We started that reimagination of Hakkasan Restaurant with a refreshed arrival experience upon entry to the main dining room and bar area, which have been opened up to give it a social and community environment. With a menu that we’ve rebuilt from the top down, Hakkasan … will now evolve to become that perfect pre-party, social gathering spot that we’ve envisioned it to become.”

Hakkasan also revamped its menu when it reopened in July. Hakkasan serves its modern Chinese dishes Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 10:45 p.m. and Sunday from 5:30 to 9:45 p.m. The lounge is open those same hours.
