Little Buddha Café
in The Palms Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, NV
The Rockwell Group


The wildly popular Paris nightspot, the Buddha Bar, debuted in the United States in the form of Little Buddha Café at The Palms Hotel and Casino. The opulent, Asian-inspired décor was designed by The Rockwell Group to create a sophisticated, relaxing place to enjoy Asian/Pacific Rim appetizers, sushi, entrees, and cocktails.

Little Buddha Café was great work for Brad Oldham because of the variety and scale of the custom lights, hardware and architectural elements which have become part of the remarkable décor. Products provided by Brad Oldham are noted below, each piece custom-made of from-the-ground-up elements. For example, the Chinese lantern lights were 100% custom-fabricated steel shells and wall mounts, with hand-embroidered canvass hand-stitched to steel frames.

• 28 x 16-inch Chinese lanterns made of canvass, silk thread and steel that jut 18 inches off the wall
• Twelve 18 x 7-inch cast-stone hand lights that stand 8 inches from the wall
• 152 linear feet of railing cut from 5/8-inch laser steel in a spiral pattern, topped with wooden checkers and resin beads
• Four 8-foot-long bronze rope front door pulls for guests to use to enter the restaurant
• Sixty-seven 9-inch bronze tassel pulls displayed throughout the restaurant and wine room
• Sculpted column bases that look like large, fluted vases at the base of the columns, 48 inches in diameter and 48 inches tall

The Little Buddha Café has won “Best Asian Restaurant” for three years by Top Restaurants Magazine and is a favorite among Hollywood and Las Vegas elite for Asian/Pacific Rim and French infusion dishes.
