Our Story

Empire Restaurant & Lounge is the Seaport “Innovation” District’s first Asian locale, located in the heart of Fan Pier. Empire transports you into the mystics of Asia with its stunning Imperial Chinese meets contemporary Asian ambiance. Designed by award-winning designer Peter Niemitz, the 14,000 sq. ft. space is bathed in bright turquoise, oranges and gold, and punctuated with intricate patterns, plush fabrics and exotic Asian art. The sleek, modern space is designed to give guests an old world feel with a touch of Hong Kong mystery. It is divided into nine aesthetically distinct rooms featuring exquisite detail in décor; the Great Wall Gallery, Bar and Lounge, Salon, Imperial Dining Room, Persimmon Room, three private dining rooms served by a private bar, and an Asian awe-inspiring open kitchen at the heart.
