Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse by The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry

The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry have been shortlisted for Restaurant – Americas Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2020.

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House is a 2-level, elegant steak restaurant designed to harken back to the glory days of old Hollywood glamour. Each Del Frisco’s restaurant is unique, the designers using the location to inspire the concept, and of course Los Angeles is best known for its connection to the film industry.

The designers conceptualised a restaurant that would be classically handsome, using Rock Hudson as a muse. To contrast, they envisioned Doris Day as the inspiration for the champagne lounge, bubbly and effervescent. The “Old Hollywood Glamour” design concept allowed the designers to re-imagine a typical steak restaurant while maintaining many of the beloved elements like over-scaled, plush furnishings, rich woods, and deep reds.

Upon entering, guests are greeted with lavish architectural design featuring custom geometric white and black marble floors and a warmly lit ceiling with a series of barrel vaults. The kitchen is behind a curved, ribbed glass wall, partially obscuring the views while providing hints of activity of the shadows beyond. The restaurant’s 12,000 bottle collection of wine serves as a backdrop to the private and main dining rooms. Custom crystal chandeliers inspired by paparazzi vintage flashbulbs float through the space, sparkling as they cascade through the serpentine stair to the bar level below. Leather chairs, mohair booths and banquettes, and buffalo hide tabletops add to the level of luxury for the culinary experience.

The champagne lounge offers the guests a more feminine experience. The lounge draws its design from the sparkling wine, complete with shimmering draperies, reflective furnishings and faceted mirror. A central focal chandelier drapes from a deep blue lacquered ceiling with decorative trims applied in a geometric pattern. The art throughout the space was carefully curated and features local artists, providing a contemporary pop to the classically inspired space.
