Marrakech – MENA Herald: Following its debut in Mykonos last summer, Ling Ling is now making its way to the red city. Due to open at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech this Autumn, Ling Ling will be a destination for in-the-know locals and global travellers looking for a touch of refined decadence and culinary excellence.

Drawing inspiration from the Izakaya concept made popular in the East, where food accompanies the drinks and not the other way around, Ling Ling takes the Hakkasan DNA and bends it to create a restaurant and bar experience that reflects its environment but has signature elements from Hakkasan.

With reinvented presentations of smaller plates, Ling Ling encourages guests to discover Hakkasan’s cuisine differently, with the opportunity to share and try a variety of the Cantonese-style dishes. Cocktails are at the heart of the experience, offering intriguing and evolving menus curated by the award-winning team in London. The sound design is mastered and perfected by Hakkasan resident DJ in London, Pathaan, bringing eclectic, masterfully crafted playlists to Ling Lings across the world.

Designed by Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier, Ling Ling in Marrakech will overlook olive groves and serene ponds at the heart of the resort. With a spacious outdoor terrace and lounge, Ling Ling will be open all year for dinner.
