The infamous Beauty & Essex in the Lower East Side of New York just recently debuted all of its pearls, gemstones and jewels in their new location, the home of glitz and glamour, Las Vegas.
Spanning 10,000 square feet, the Rockwell Group-designed space celebrates the exquisite beauty of jewels, while the dishes, prepared by Chef Chris Santos compliment the ambiance and decor of the room. With over 230 seats for dining, and another 90 seats in the bar and lounge, the restaurant explores jewels in all forms—from pearls and gemstones to vintage jewelry boxes, to antique and heirloom pieces.
Diners will appreciate the juxtaposition of the gritty pawn shop-inspired space, curated by expert Lauren Kaminksy Gold, against a light and decadent entryway. The vast main dining area showcases various, delicately strung jewels, lockets and vintage heirlooms that are complimented with a variety of beautifully strung pearl chandeliers. Once in the Pearl Lounge, viewers will be in awe over the custom chandelier comprised of thousands of draped pearls which radiate from the ceiling and down the walls to plush, tufted purple banquettes.
The opulence continues in the Mirror Bar where a DJ will spin from a gold DJ booth and through a corridor featuring a 40-foot-long screened wall composed of framed vintage lockets that leads guests to a trio of ornate dining rooms complete with custom finishes, metallic and jewel-toned hues and glamorous lighting.
