The backbone of IZEL is Latin Artistry, the decor is warm, contemporary Latin and sophisticated in design. The color palette is golden liquid rum, deep Latin orange sunset and crisp brown tobacco leaves. The tables are spaciously laid out for intimacy, privacy and to allow a direct viewing line to the stage and dance floor. Some areas provide more privacy and are in less direct view from the stage.
The unique warm colored materials and atmospheric lighting add to the slick yet mature atmosphere with the dramatic city skyline as a backdrop. The exclusive setting feels almost surreptitious and creates a day and night environment for its discerning patrons to dine and play uninterrupted with the city at comfortable distance.
The service is 'casual confident' delivered by a uniquely developed knowledgeable and charismatic service team sourced locally and internationally.
