The stunning rooftop space located on Lincoln Road served as the perfect backdrop for the occasion, as guests got to get a first glimpse of the beautifully-designed project, which features expansive dining and bar areas both inside and outside totaling 13,000 square-feet. The interior design incorporates natural elements that give it relaxed, yet sophisticated look and feel, utilizing lush greenery and natural woods with neutral color palettes to complete the space.
