Tao has been a nightlife destination in Las Vegas for years, drawing Angelenos with its surprisingly good pan-Asian fare and sceney ambiance. The New York City concept is now apparently slated for the Dream Hotel in Hollywood, no surprise really since sister concept Beauty & Essex was already confirmed back in August 2015.
What Tao's entrance into the City of Angels means is that Hollywood's nightlife scene is about to take a turn toward the Empire state of mind. The "vibe dining" restaurant boasts everything from sushi rolls and dim sum to more composed plates. No word on whether Tao will bring its entire nightclub to Hollywood, but with the limited space, it seems unlikely.
At the moment, there's no projected opening date for Tao, though Beauty & Essex was originally slated to open this year. According to hotel developers Hollywood IRC, the project is currently under construction.
