Symbols of double, which translate to good fortune in Chinese culture, permeate the restaurant’s design. Shuang Ba, meaning, “double eight,” signifies prosperity and wealth; far from coincidence, there are 88 seats in the restaurant and 88 items on the menu. In traditional fashion, hues of deep red accompany dark woods and metal furnishings, along with ornate statues appearing in double. Many of the restaurant’s serving carts, trays and bureaus were purchased at antique auctions. The focal point of the dining room is a 15-ton marble pillar of two intertwined dragons, which represent reverence for the emperor, wealth and heritage. Four hand-woven silk tapestries in each corner of the dining room feature artisan detailing of a Chinese carp pond and water lilies, iris flowers, a bamboo grove and Chinese plum blossoms. These represent abundance in life, elegance and prosperity. Furthermore, four private dining rooms are decorated with symbols of the phoenix and dragon, among other mystical creatures representative of good fortune, endless wealth and yin and yang. Each dining room features a hidden private bathroom; a design characteristic that propels the experience of luxury and allure.

“Inspired by connectedness to local culture and passion for creating extraordinary experiences, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar caters to world travelers seeking international tastes,” said said Scott Allen, general manager, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar. “Shuang Ba will uphold the Grand Hyatt brand’s legacy by embodying the highest standard of international luxury and cultural culinary experiences.”

Shuang Ba will accompany a myriad of international dining outlets, from experiential pan-Asian eateries and ornate cocktail lounges, to swim-up pool bars and pastel airstream food trucks. Shuang Ba is located at the end of a discreet hallway adjacent to the high rollers section of the casino floor and The Lynden, the resort’s high-end all-whiskey lounge and most exclusive of all the resort’s casino experiences.
