HANOI - Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi’s new angelina restaurant is turning the tide on Hanoi’s entertainment and culinary scene, having opened its doors on September 15, following a top-to-toe renovation. The bar, lounge and restaurant, which features a brand new concept, a new chef as well as a completely different top quality menu, has its sights set on becoming the capital’s most sought-after venue.
Designed by the award-winning Karen Hay of the Hong Kong-based interior design studio, In-dulge, the re-design and total renovation heralds a new dawn for angelina. The two-story space, which boasts an eight-meter high floor-to-ceiling bar and seats up to 120 guests, features soothing hints of gold, mustard, maroon and dusty blue. On the ground-level, the elegant wood and leather bar makes a grand statement. Meanwhile, a separate whisky lounge, complete with velvet wingback chairs and a roaring fireplace, lies tucked behind a charcoal curtain. On the second floor, guests are encouraged to feast in the privacy of an intimate dining area, while the open-plan design offers a stunning ambience and a clear view of the elegant bar below.
