As day turns into night, the restaurant comes to life and the adventure continues after dining -- the distinction between drinkers and diners blurring as music turned up and the wall wash lights add to the experience, and dancing begins. Soft lighting, rich colour tones and juxtaposing textures contribute to rich and welcoming ambience. The reception area is clean, bold and inviting using two suspension lights with an engaging blend of light and shadows to create a distinctive ambiance and evoke a sense of weightlessness upon entrance.
