Focus Lighting was brought on to design Beauty & Essex Las Vegas by the design architect, Rockwell Group. The second of its kind, Beauty & Essex Las Vegas is very much an extension of the brand, evoking in guests the sense that they are dining inside of a well-curated jewelry box. Staple features from Beauty & Essex New York - the functioning storefront Pawn Shop, Pearl Lounge, Mirror Bar, Locket Room and private dining room – were reestablished. Other features, like the 40-foot-long Locket Wall and a pair of “diamond rings” in the private dining room, bring new life to the concept.
Both decorative and architectural lighting are used to reinforce the sense of luxury guests feel at Beauty & Essex. Customized decorative fixtures accomplish this outwardly, while architectural lighting subtly brings all of the restaurant’s jewel-inspired features and finishes to life. We used light to make every detail feel luxurious and significant, enveloping guests in a world of gold, pearl and crystal.
The transition from the gritty storefront pawn shop to the restaurant where every little detail works to make guests feel as though they are inside of a jewelry-box, creates a magical, completely immersive experience from beginning to end at Beauty & Essex Las Vegas.
