Restaurant/Fine Dining

Grand Prize

Unlike a typical movie theater, this luxury entertainment destination provides a movie and dining experience, including Salt Ultra Lounge and Tanzy, a full-service Mediterranean restaurant. Guests can begin with cocktails in Salt, which is outfitted with circular couches and a dramatic oval-shaped bar set before a 28-foot-tall, backlit wine bottle display. Dinners at Tanzy enjoy plush leather seating and intimate zones set beneath a theatrical shimmer-screened ceiling. Both the bar and restaurant are awash in deep purples and browns that continue the theatrical backdrop to the wood panels, and copper, red, and silver accents. LED lighting around the radial of the shimmer screens also continues the theatrical ambiance, reinforcing curvilinear forms and refracting the colors off of the copper, champagne and silver shimmer screens. Deep purple walls feature a thousand candles within its niches, adding to the intimacy of this luxurious space.
