We visit post-bling, top-notch venues that do more than just flash the cash.

Wonderwall's stupendous Ozone bar at the Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong is jaw-dropping for all the right reasons, while Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku's Camelia restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental in Paris is subversive as well as chic. You'll also find flights of fancy from Staat in Seoul and Stefan Hitthaler in Monguelfo, and a very Japanese take on luxury: a meditative space by Teruhiro Yanagihara.
