Opus Hotel 100 Days

I was invited last night to the launch of Opus Hotel’s 100 Days pop-up restaurant, currently taking over the hotel’s former Elixir Bistro space until the end of 2010. It took only six days to renovate the eight year space that they occupied.

The interior has a funky, urban vibe with bright Warhol-inspired graffiti [created by graffiti artist Vince Dumoulin] throughout the rooms and bar. There’s a DJ holding court together with the requisite Macbook Pro. I was told that he’ll be spinning tunes on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

Guests were served mouth-watering bites of food from their menu, from Kobe beef to seafood.

There’s great attention to detail. Being a designer, I had a field day in there with my camera. I was inspired at nearly every angle of the space to capture its funky vibe. Witness the exit door.

After 100 Days, the restaurant will again get an uplift, and morph into a world class restaurant incorporating a new design concept, due to open in early 2011. The restaurant is located next to the Opus Hotel at 322 Davie Street in Yaletown.

    I’m not sure where the Opus Hotel is but these pictures look enticing.

    Not sure aside form the one piece of Marilyn was Warholesque about the design.

    I think that the colourful art and dripping paint everywhere reminded me of the Warhol Factory days back in the 60’s in NYC. Marilyn was the most obvious reference to the artist; I’m actually glad that there weren’t any soup cans on the walls as well. The ambiance gave off more subtle references to Warhol.

    It makes me feel so bad for missing the opening night.
