One of The Hari Hong Kong’s two restaurants designed by Tara Bernerd & Partners. Japanese restaurant, Zoku, is an elegant, richly designed space with a palette of pinks, playing off khaki velvet banquettes and leathers. In keeping with modern dining styles, the restaurant is split into a more traditionally formal dining area with angled booth seating to one side and more lounge seating to the other side. Bespoke rugs with unique inhouse designs are set over the dark timber floor that runs throughout the space.
The kitchen is partially obscured behind a wall of Critall with fluted glass, adding to the theatre and ambience of the dining experience. This fluted theme continues on the front of the bar, this time in timber.
The ceiling is a main focal point in the restaurant, being made of angled timber slats in Origami-like forms, which brings a nod to the Japanese cuisine. The welcome desk is marble-fronted and features a playful light with a pink tasselled lampshade. In the more formal seating area, the three-legged dining chairs have been chosen for their striking, sculptural appearance. Wine displays, behind fluted glass, add to the air of sophistication.
