Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen
Las Vegas, NV
NAIOP Nevada Honor Award, Hospitality Tenant Improvement, 2019
Caesars Palace is now home to the first publicly accessible restaurant of the reality cooking show Hell’s Kitchen starring famed Chef Gordon Ramsey. It offers a complete dining experience and serves as the show’s filming location several times a year.
Fire was the underlying primary concept for the brand.
The exterior entrance welcomes guests with a massive flaming sculpture of a pitchfork and the initials H.K. Flames are created utilizing nine large gas fired lamps mounted to the perimeter columns of the sculpture. The exterior is lit with color changing lighting along with a hologram of Gordon Ramsey.
The 11,000 square-foot, 300-seat restaurant was a remodel and addition of the existing space. CSD Architects created a modern re-interpretation of the classic roman architectural style through simplicity of repetition, proportions, texture, and color. Designed with elegant décor, pitchfork motifs are presented throughout the restaurant as well as the signature colors of red and blue representing the colors of competition used in the show. The restaurant incorporates a small retail area and a hall-of-fame wall which presents past contestant winners.
The design and construction schedule were an exciting challenge for this project. Hell’s Kitchen needed to be completed to accommodate the finale of the reality television show. The winner was named the head chef of the new restaurant. The project was built in less than 5 months and took a dedicated and synchronized effort from a large team to accomplish this project quickly and to the highest quality.
According to data from Yelp, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen was the most photographed restaurant in the U.S., for 2022-2023.
