Located over the 70th & 71st floors of the Address Boulevard Hotel, Takumi is a new dynamic destination for the renowned Japanese chef Hide Yamamoto accommodating multiple dining areas and VIP platform areas, whilst La Vie is a French hybrid of contemporary and cheeky - fresh, current and provocative. An extrovert use of subliminal messaging, artwork, and texture culminate in the creation of these unique venues.
