The opening of Mott 32 at The Venetian brought modern Hong Kong cuisine to Las Vegas, and with it a bevy of celebrities including Justin Hartley of “This Is Us,” celebrity designer Christian Siriano and “Dancing With the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba, among others.
The space, designed by award-winning interior designer Joyce Wang in collaboration with Maximal Concepts, evokes the history of Hong Kong with decidedly Vegas touches, such as a dining table made out of a roulette wheel.
At the grand opening party, guests sampled Mott 32’s acclaimed menu, which embraces flavors and ingredients from China, prepared in a more rustic way, in dishes including barbecue Pluma Iberico pork and minced duck in lettuce cups.
Bespoke cocktails such as Mott St. Mule, Joe’s Elixir and “It’s Five O’clock in Hong Kong” also were served, while 1920s speakeasy-inspired band Moonshiners provided the tunes.
