Hakkasan Restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip is Now Re-opened, with a Reimagined Menu and Remodeled Interior Space

Global hospitality companies Tao Group Hospitality and Hakkasan Group are re-opening modern Chinese cuisine curator Hakkasan Restaurant located inside MGM Grand on the Las Vegas Strip. Hakkasan Restaurant is reopening after an extensive renovation of the interior space and a completely reengineered menu. The first day of operations will be Thursday, July 1.

“With the reopening of Hakkasan Restaurant 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,” said 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 Restaurant will now evolve to become that perfect pre-party, social gathering spot that we’ve envisioned it to become.”

With a reimagined menu that introduces new dishes while giving a refreshed taste to Hakkasan classics, this new spin to Hakkasan’s menu includes a variety of Dim Sum available a la carte; a raw bar featuring Oysters with caviar, Lobster Cocktails, and a Raw Seafood Tower; and new dishes including:
