“I wanted to create a modern yet warm Japanese design through the use of white oak, which is used extensively in Japan, and clean sharp lines. The combination of both the spirits and sushi bars in the same line so the guest can witness the making of all they will eat and drink in one place as if they were watching a play.” states Musa Dajani of both Dajani Construction & Dajani Group.
