Park Chinois started life as a conversation about the 1930’s; the era of the dinner and dance, Big Band sound, the Cotton Club, but an idea needs historical context and intellectual grounding to progress, it cannot be stuck in time or it risks becoming a parody. It needs to move forward not backward; never repeat, always evolve. Park Chinois occupies a niche, and offers a counter balance to the current club culture. It brings about a rebirth of the Dinner Dance aesthetic, a modern interpretation underpinned by old school values. Park Chinois is about being entertained and delighting people, with grace, charm and elegance.
For most Alan Yau is better known for creating Chinese food chain Wagamama; for the food-nerds he is better known for his more formal creations – Hakkasan and Yauatcha. Park Chinois’ Berkeley Street home is unsurprisingly tilted towards the latter. Alongside the usual show-stopping cuisine, Park Chiniois will include live music in the form of Jazz, and classic – set in chic 1920s New York décor.
