A monstrous chandelier laced with bronze beading is positioned above the oval-shaped bar, and elevated ceilings arc above the dining room’s 240 seats. A wide staircase leads guests past a wall of 100,000 hand-placed seashells, and along the left wall, 2,136 bottles of wine are stacked inside a glass cellar.
