Some of us were in Vegas this past weekend, which may explain a few things. Doing our best to engage in design-worthy pursuits while away, it was our duty to make a reservation at Social House, the sushi-sake joint designed by the four hotties at AvroKO.
It must have been terribly distressing for the designers to get to this part of the brief: “And then, a life-sized galleon will sail in front of the space, filled with Jack Sparrow-esque types–but in this case, very obviously gay–who, using their highly developed gymnastics skills, board a neighboring boat where scantily-clad dancers have only their gyrating hips to defend themselves.” See, Social House is located in Treasure Island, or TI, as its signage insists, which has until recently resisted hipification. But now they’ve sexed up the street show, acronymed themselves, and hired AvroKO to design their flagship restaurant. So TI it is.
