The Opus Hotel

The highly anticipated restaurant and bar, Koko, in Montreal is set to open its doors on Friday, May 9, 2008 in Montreal’s newest boutique experience - the ever chic Opus Hotel. Situated at the corner of the fashionable Sherbrooke and St. Laurent intersection, Koko Restaurant & Bar blends urban glamour with modern Asian cuisine in a theatrical, 9,000 square feet setting that is destined to be the venue of choice for the stylish and sophisticated crowd.With a name that winks at European glamour [the divine Coco Chanel] and nods to its Eastern influence [Koko is Japanese for ‘here’], Robert Bailey, the designer behind Vancouver’s award-winning Opus Hotel, has procured iconic furnishings from local artisans and international designers to bring the building’s avant-garde setting to life. The main dining room, illuminated by massive glittering chandeliers, is furnished with such iconic pieces as Flora benches, Amat Jamaica Barstools, Miss Lacy chairs and Attila stools by Philippe Starck. The dazzling array of fabrics include sumptuous velvets, sensuous leathers, intricate paisleys, faux furs, retro-modern jacquards, and almost a thousand yards of drapery.“Koko adds an exciting new element to the dining scene in Montreal,” says John deC. Evans, President of Opus Hotels. To set the mood, resident DJs spin with international talent to bring the latest electro-house rhythms from East and West. While internationally renowned Executive Chef Don Letendre creates innovative pan-Asian delicacies that are as provocative to the senses as Koko’s fantastical setting. In keeping with the East meets West theme, the innovative cocktail list adds Asian twists to classic favorites and vice versa. Dining and cocktail service will be offered late into the evening.Opus Montreal provides a unique boutique experience blending modern design with a nod to history in chic Montreal style.
