A day after Christmas, Inggo and I went to Las Casas Quezon City. The reason is that I saw an appetizing food photo from a friend on Instagram and asked him the resto’s name. He highly recommended this resto to us and pushed me to get a reservation asap lol. And I did! On this blog, I will write about the interior. Check out Inggo’s food review here.
This place was previously a mansion that was sold to the Las Casas group. They are famous for the resort Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan where they take old houses around the Philippines and rebuild them on their grounds. Any damage found on the houses, they do their best to repair or preserve it.
Art nouveau inspired foyer.
Sitting room that’s not open to the public when we visited.
The focal point of the sitting is a beautiful Amorsolo portrait. Must be the previous owner?
Ceiling design with wood carvings.
Wood details near the stairs.
Mosaic detail on the wall panels all over the ground floor.
Second floor houses the function rooms. More art nouveau inspiration with Alphonse Mucha paintings / concealed doors.
Gustav Klimt replicas of his works “Mother and Child” and “The Kiss”.
A peek at the back of the building.
Fishermen art installation near the pool.
They’re building additional houses for future use. Apparently they’re planning on making Las Casas QC a boutique hotel.
I find it a bit weird that the interiors of the main building is in French style, yet the rest of the buildings are in Philippine style. But nevertheless, we had an amazing yet expensive lunch here. I look forward to their boutique hotel offerings in the future.
