Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
MR CHOW celebrated its 50th anniversary last weekend with an artfully elegant evening of food, fun, and dancing. The event was held at artist, collector, and restaurateur Michael Chow’s studio in Los Angeles, where he commemorated the date alongside his children Maximilian Chow, China Chow, and Asia Chow.
The first MR CHOW opened in London 1968, debuting a new concept in food culture that mixed Beijing cuisine with European-style fine dining. The hit restaurant went on to open locations in Beverly Hills, New York, Miami, Malibu, Las Vegas, and Mexico City.
The man behind it all, Michael Chow, has long promoted art, architecture, design, and Chinese culture. He returned to an early passion for painting in 2011, and has since gone on to exhibit his work at the UCCA in Beijing, the Power Station Museum in Shanghai, and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.
Guests on Friday included Stevie Wonder, Misha Noonoo, Al Pacino, Camilla Belle, Nikki Haas & Simon Haas, Timothy Potts, Heidi Klum, Liz Goldwyn, and many more. After dinner, the partygoers danced to music by DJ Cash and were surprised by a traditional dragon dance, to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
