Haute Scene : The Grand Opening of Hakkasan

 The grand opening party was attended by nearly 500 notables.

Hakkasan is a chic, 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 dealmakers – and of course, everyone wanting to enjoy modern Cantonese cuisine and dim sum from Michelin-starred Chef Ho Chee Boon. The grand opening party was attended by nearly 500 notables, including Didier Souillat (COO of Hakkasan), Tom Perkins, Willie Brown, Restoration Hardware CEO Gary Friedman and Popchips CEO Keith Belling. Dragon dancers, a station featuring Peking duck with caviar, signature Hakkasan dishes and inventive cocktails added to the allure of the evening.
