Lucky Cat opens inside Gordon Ramsay’s former restaurant Maze in Grosvenor Square, marking the end of 14 years in business.
This is Gordon Ramsay’s first new restaurant in 5 years, and what a spectacular one it is. Bluecrow had the pleasure
of being the main contractor for this project and worked closely with amazing designer – Afroditi Krassa.
Lucky Cat takes its Inspiration from the drinking dens of 1930’s Tokyo with many sensational bespoke design features including the bar which is faced with intricate brass bamboo panelling.
Upon entry opposite the bar, you are greeted by a spectacular ‘cat wall’ which comprises of over 300 individually handmade ceramic maneki-neko cats, symbolising good fortune after which the restaurant is named.
The showpiece bar frontage is complimented throughout the design with intricate brass details and accents.
“Lucky Cat has been a long-time vision for me and I can’t wait to bring it to life,” says Gordon Ramsay.
“The whole interior has been designed so that there isn’t a bad seat in the house, wherever you sit, there will be something to see,” says Krassa.
The chef’s table, where guests will be able to choose from bespoke menus and witness the chefs at work, has a ceiling covered with over 80 handmade uchiwa paper fans from Japan.
