Inside Encore Macau
Encore at Wynn Macau is putting the final touches on in advance of its April 2010 opening and we've got a slew of new photos taken yesterday by MacauTripping correspondent Ace Macau. Included are some pics of the building exteriors as well as a handful of beauty shots inside the freshly opened Golden Flower restaurant. In a word, wow.
Enjoy! And big thanks to Ace for hooking us all up with another round of gorgeous photographs!
Encore Porte Cochere
To the south is MGM Grand, to the left (not photographed) is L'Arc and StarWorld. Avenida de Amizade is 20 yards behind where this photo was taken.
These sure do look identical to the renderings we posted 8 months ago (since removed a the request of Wynn's lawyer goons.)
Porte Cochere Detail
I wonder what is in those wooden boxes. Guns & Ammo?
Entrance to the "Dore Club"
Presumably private gaming.
Dore Club signage detail
A cursory search for "dore" doesn't offer much insight... Do they mean Doré the artist? or is "dore" an English phoneticism of a Chinese word? If you know, post the answer in the comments. Thx!
That peeks into and out of the brand new "Golden Flower" restaurant (which is open). Outside the "diamond" design is still in effect.
Strangely gorgeous and supremely ugly at the same time. Brilliant!
Strippers everywhere are revolting at the tassel shortage caused by this project.
Golden Flower Interior
Perhaps we should call this "Sinatra East", same color schemes. I'm interested by the geometrical explosion of "diamond" lattice work in the shoji inspired panel walls and the carpet. The diamond pattern is one of Roger Thomas' favorite motifs and to see him extending the narrative of this shape into slightly more abstracted dimensions is certainly interesting. I'm concerned that this design almost verges on circusy, a dangerous ground for any post-Sarno casino resort.
Interesting stuff overall, can't wait to see it in person.
