On April 24th, Hakkasan kicked off the venue’s one-year anniversary celebrations as it welcomed an exclusive VIP event hosted by VEGAS Magazine. 

Greeted upon arrival by traditional Chinese lion dancers moving to festive drums, guests were led into Hakkasan restaurant to experience a vibrant party space filled with intriguing interactive and culinary elements. Beyond its signature latticework caging and tucked away in its Calcutta marble inlays and wood corridors, Hakkasan restaurant presented many surprises for its visitors including a branded photo booth area, were enticed by the beautiful movements of white dragon atmosphere dancers and Chinese calligraphers offered live-painted Chinese characters of wisdom. The event’s guest of honor: Lady Hakkasan was adorned in a custom Hakkasan branded gown, made entirely from red envelopes (a symbol of good luck and fortune). Lady Hakkasan set the evening’s elegant tone by delicately presenting gifts to all who interacted with her.

Furthermore, culinary stations were positioned throughout the space to highlight some of Hakkasan’s distinctive and modern Cantonese cuisine. A Peking duck station featured chefs slicing and serving its famed dish, a mixology station showcasing Hakkasan’s Iron Rose, Buddah’s Palm and Virgin Hakka were crafted in front of the intrigued guests and an interactive dessert display impressed the foodies who attended as its house made macarons and customized chocolate mignardises were the talk of the evening.

After experiencing the extravagant celebration inside the restaurant space, invitees advanced up to the exclusive Ling Ling Lounge, located on the venue’s third-level, for a private cocktail reception. The party continued in the main room of the nightclub where Steve Aoki, fresh off the announcement of his highly anticipated upcoming new album “Neon Future I,” brought his over-the-top party to the venue to commemorate an unforgettable kick-off to anniversary weekend celebrations.

Note: This recipe uses raw eggs, which should not be served to pregnant women, young children, the elderly or anyone whose health is compromised. Pasteurized eggs may be substituted.
chicken salad
In a pot, bring about 2 quarts of water to a gentle simmer and salt heavily so it tastes like seawater. Add thyme, rosemary, bay leaves and 1 teaspoon pepper. Add the chicken to the poaching liquid
and simmer gently until it reaches an internal temperature of 1° 60 degrees. Allow the chicken to cool in the liquid and remove when ready to use.
Dice the chicken. In a bowl, combine with the celery, walnuts, mustard seeds, aioli and lemon juice and season  with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, toss the kale in the oil and vinegar and season  with salt and pepper. Top with the chicken salad, followed by the onions and the kale. Top with remaining bread slices, cut into halves and serve.
 
pickled mustard seeds
In a saucepan,  bring 1 cup water, vinegar, sugar and dry mustard to a boil. Add the mustard seeds  and simmer for 5 minutes, until the seeds  bloom (double in size). Remove from heat and cool. Store the mustard seeds  in the liquid. Keeps well if refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
 
aioli
Place the egg yolk, dijon mustard, garlic, cayenne pepper and vinegar in a food processor  or blender.
Start the blender and slowly add the grapeseed oil in a thin, even stream. When half of the oil has been added, add 1 tablespoon water. Then slowly add the remaining grapeseed oil and blend until fully incorporated. If the aioli looks a bit thick, add another 1 teaspoon of water. Slowly add the olive oil and blend until you have a smooth aioli. Season with salt and pepper. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

heat, add the onions and stir. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally. Keeps well if refrigerated for up to 2 to 3 weeks.
