The Chinese Friendship Gate at 10th and Arch marks the entrance to Chinatown.

Talk about multitalented: a hybrid Cantonese restaurant/sushi bar/karaoke bar/bubble tea chain extravaganza - all in one building - is opening soon in Chinatown, reports.

Canton 11 has been revealed as the concept of the long-dormant space at 1025 Arch Street. But don't be fooled by the relatively low-key exterior. The renderings for Canton 11 are super glitzy.

Essentially, the main gig at Canton 11 is a Cantonese restaurant with a dining room on the first floor and a big multipurpose event and dining space on the floor above. Next to the Canton 11 entrance will be Chatime, the popular global bubble tea chain, which will also house a sushi bar. On the basement level, guests will find an eight-room karaoke bar called Lair KTV.

Owners told they hope to open in early May. Mark your calendars, folks.
