Mandarin Oriental has announced a partnership with Hakkasan Group to open a new dining concept, Ling Ling, at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech on 22 August 2016.
Offering a vibrant, social experience that fits well with the Marrakech lifestyle, Ling Ling provides a creative twist to the renowned Hakkasan DNA, resulting in an experience that encompasses cocktails, dining and dancing in no particular order. Drawing inspiration from the Japanese Izakaya concept, Ling Ling offers an innovative cocktail list, smaller plates of beautifully prepared Cantonese dishes, perfect for sharing, and an eclectic soundtrack. Ling Ling overlooks the picturesque olive groves and serene pools at the centre of the award-winning Mandarin Oriental resort, and encompasses an outdoor terrace, lounge and bar. The venue will be open all year round for cocktails and dinner.
“We are delighted to welcome Ling Ling to Marrakech,” says Mark Bradford, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech. “Our beautiful resort is the natural home for its first venture in Morocco. Ling Ling is not only a great addition to the hotel’s other culinary offerings, but it will also provide a stylish nightlife venue to complement the chic and vibrant Marrakech scene.”
“We are very pleased to be bringing Ling Ling to Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech,” says Vinicio Alberelli, Director of Operations, Europe and UK. “The combination of two such iconic brands and teams is a truly exciting endeavour. We believe Ling Ling will become a drinking and dining destination in the city offering something completely unique to the market.”
Ling Ling at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech has been designed by Gilles & Boissier, the acclaimed French designer duo who created the overall design of the resort.
