A Voyage to Distant Asia at Sòng, Pop-up Bar at the Shangri-la Hotel, Paris
Paris, 14th December 2018 – As of mid-December, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, will unveil SÒNG, its new pop-up bar nestled in a Suite with a terrace facing the Eiffel Tower and overlooking the City of Light.
Blending Asian and European traditions of travelling, the SÒNG will transport guests to the enchanting Shanghai of the 1930s, with unique creations imagined by Clément Emery, Head Barman at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, and inspired by the flavours of Hendrick’s Gin and Glenfiddich whiskies. The bar was named after the SÒNG dynasty, which reigned between 960 and 1279 and was a rich period in China’s cultural history.
The SÒNG’s interior brings to mind a cabinet of curiosities, while the ambiance is that of a boudoir, with subdued lighting and warm red, golden and black tones. Seated comfortably in velvet armchairs, with sophisticated, modern Asian music in the background, guests can complete their experience with tapas rooted in Asian gastronomy, including dim sum, bao, and other delicacies from the Far East, which marry beautifully with the flavours of the bar’s signature cocktails.
On the covered and heated terrace, a cosy and tropical winter garden offers a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower and the Parisian cityscape by night. For cigar connoisseurs, a fine selection will be available, to accompany prestigious spirits and Glenfiddich single malts. Two tasting experiences based on the famous Scottish distillery’s single malts have been created: Voyage de l’Empereur and Voyage Experimental Series. They offer a magnificent way to discover the richness of Glenfiddich whiskies, with exceptional bottles that will delight even the most demanding of tastes.
With its exclusive atmosphere, this intimate bar will offer a superb setting in which to enjoy refinement and exotic influences in the heart of the French capital: a true journey through time and space, which will leave guests with a pleasant taste of mystery
