Today we find ourselves in unprecedented times as our communities around the world come to terms with the COVID-19 pandemic. The long-term impact of the virus on the travel, tourism, entertainment, and hospitality industry still remains unclear. We are taking every step and precaution to prioritize the safety and well-being of our guests and employees.
With the best interests of our communities in mind, Hakkasan Group has temporarily closed our nightclubs, dayclubs, and restaurants in over 20 destination cities worldwide. We have been closely following recommendations from the CDC and public health authorities in the countries we operate in.
As a global hospitality company our decision to temporarily suspend our operations were multi-layered. First and foremost, our decision was rooted in our commitment to protect the health and safety of our team members, guests, vendors, and the many others who touch our business operations on a daily basis. We have also followed government mandates in the US and internationally requiring restaurants and non-essential businesses to temporarily cease activity.
As a company, we knew that the decision to temporarily suspend our operations would have wide reaching ramifications across the business starting with our employees, who make up the bedrock of our company. We continue striving to preserve and protect the long-term stability of the company so that when operational again we are able to welcome back as many team members as possible.
Hakkasan Group is committed to ‘crafting remarkable experiences’ for our guests throughout all our worldwide properties. We will reopen, but we will make those decisions once government restrictions are lifted and we feel it is safe for our team members and guests to return to our venues.
We are deeply grateful for everything our patrons, vendors, partners, guests, and employees do for our business, each other, and their communities.
We look forward to getting our operations running again soon. Until that time, stay safe, stay strong.
