Neo Paris comes alive at Hong Kong restaurant BELON

See inside its new Soho location

Joyce Wang Studio has conjured a futuristic, metallic-hued take on the Parisian bistro for Hong Kong institution BELON – which has reopened in a new Soho location.

Guests enter the Hong Kong restaurant via an iridescent granite ‘portal’ and a mirrored passageway, which sets the scene for BELON’s moody new interiors. It’s a far cry from the brightly lit space of its former location.

Wall lights and pendants bathe the restaurant’s interiors in gentle light, which emphasises Joyce Wang Studio’s use of textured materials including hammered pewter, slatted timber and rough wall plaster.

Floating ceiling panels, together with the lighting, create the feeling of being underwater – serving as a reminder of the corals and sponges that new chef Matthew Kirkley apparently used as inspiration for the food. Guests that want some extra theatre with their dinner can book the glass box kitchen, which gives a direct vantage point onto Kirkley’s work as he prepares Kusshi oysters, pigeon pithivier and chocolate hazelnut cake.
