Shek is delighted with Hands Hospitality's design mixology. "It's a new
look for an iconic Hong Kong dining experience, and a fun, exciting way for
international tourists to discover our food culture," she says.

COUR TE S Y OF THE DRUNK EN POT

Chinese hot-pot restaurants have traditionally been "uninspiring, too bright
and chaotic," says David Sung, design director of Hands Hospitality Ltd. To put
a more sophisticated, contemporary spin on that dining experience at The
Drunken Pot, restaurateur Vivien Shek's new eatery in Hong Kong's Kowloon
district, Sung and his design team used three main elements: strong splashes of
red, contrasting textures and specialty lighting. (The "Drunken" in the restaurant's name is a reference to the "sake bomb" drinks available there.)
"We used red because we wanted to add a strong hint of China in the space,"
says Sung, who worked at Super Potato Design Studio Japan before starting his
own firm. "That color also provides a striking contrast with the bare concrete
walls within the space. We selected distressed wood planks for the bar front
and parapet wall, to achieve a raw and rustic texture, and installed pinpoint
downlighting at each table to help create a more intimate feel."
Those touches are integrated into a "fish market" ambience that Hands
Hospitality created by populating the 6,200-sq.-ft. space with such touches as
a traditional carved wooden door, a bar styled like a vendor's stall and colorful
hand-painted signs and graffiti recounting traditional fishing tales. The latter
works include a large mural by local urban contemporary artist Ben Pickering.
"The idea behind the mural is to represent both fresh and traditional, with a
young Asian lady representing the vibrant, cosmopolitan scene in Hong Kong,
combined with a traditional Japanese twist as a 'Goddess of the Sea' sharing
