The E11EVEN Sound by DAS Audio is integrated expertly into the rich, architectural features of the space allowing for high-quality, well-balanced sound. Whether it’s lounge music over dinner or progressing into a lively night, the sound is designed thoroughly and tuned perfectly for every hour.

Cameo Opus S5’s (22) are highlighted within Queen’s unique ceiling feature as dance lighting and elegant aerial looks. The (6) Robe Viva CMY’s are part of Robe’s remote follow spot system. Elation Dartz is built into (48) individual ceiling domes surrounded LED tape as well as (12) Cameo Z300 strobes.

Controls are grandMA3 light, MA3 NPU, Avolites Q4 media server, ShowKontrol for timecode, and Robe RoboSpot.

Interior designer Carlos Rodriguez of ModPlay Studio meticulously preserved Queen’s architectural details from the 1940s. The interior lighting designs by Lux Populi are integrated beautifully throughout the restaurant and lobby.

The grandiose main dining room is anchored by a medley of rich, textural focal points abound below a dome ceiling clad with (12) custom articulating LED video petals. The mezzanine P3.9 LED video screen is at 50ft in length and 6ft in height. Beautiful custom video content provided by DMDS7udios.

Queen is such a beautiful, historic building that great care had to be taken over the two-year install. The construction manager, Selin Susoy, and Project Managers, Jillian Rio and Thiago Menezes, handled all of the construction
teams efficiently and mindfully to conserve the historical integrity of the building. Koncept Systems installed the lighting, video, and sound systems diligently and professionally.

Upon recognising that the entertainment lighting required a cohesive plan for the controls, determining a location for the controls booth as well as a detailed design with concept renders, Michael Meacham from iDesign was brought in as the entertainment lighting and video consultant.

Queen is a stunning balance of Art Deco and modern in the historic Paris Theater. The architectural lighting by Lux Populi is just as efficacious as the entertainment lighting and visuals. It is a vibrant, inviting, and downright opulent Club restaurant that is just as audibly enticing as it is visually.
