Introducing Hakkasan: the hautest new restaurant and lounge to bring sexy back to San Francisco.

Hakkasan is the chic and sultry haven for contemporary Chinoiserie and fine Chinese dining.  Finally, a San Francisco haunt where guests can dress to impress. This is the new spot for VIPs, power players and deal makers – and of course, everyone wanting to enjoy modern Cantonese cuisine and dim sum by Michelin-starred Chef Ho Chee Boon. Hakkasan also boasts extensive wine and sake programs, late-night dining, and a lively bar and lounge scene. Did we mention serious cocktails and desserts?  The 25-seat curved bar is a mighty fine place to be late night.

Speaking of enjoyable late night treats, Hakkasound will showcase a rotating roster of cutting-edge and of-the-moment local and international DJs spinning an eclectic blend of world and electronic music.

Across the globe from New York to Miami, Dubai, Mumbai, Vegas and London, Hakkasan San Francisco is the latest in the 8-city chain of wildly successful – and distinctly different – restaurant launches. Located at One Kearny in the heart of downtown San Francisco, the dynamic 10,000-square-foot, 170-seat restaurant offers something for everyone with five distinctly varied spaces that deliver a sense of mystique.  Private dining to business deals to fabulous fêtes are all part of the Hakkasan experience.

Hakkasan will be open daily from 11:30am–2:30pm for lunch and 5:30pm for dinner with last dinner orders taken at 11pm, featuring a bar menu with drinks and food throughout the day.  Restaurant hours on Saturday and Sunday are 11am–3pm for brunch.

For those looking for a mid-day downtown jaunt, the “Taste of Hakkasan” menu reinvents the power lunch. The abbreviated menu is available Monday-Friday 11:30-2:30pm in the restaurant, Ling Ling and at the bar.

With so many options to please every palette, this impressive new haunt is sure to make its mark on San Francisco’s downtown dining scene.
