The flamboyant boutique hotel, IVY Shanghai, is closing for five months from 29th September for a facelift and relaunch. Just a year after first opening in a former 1950’s cinema, the hotel is undergoing a revamp with an aim of becoming Shanghai’s leading party destination as well as being its premier creative residence.

A new basement nightspot will feature a stunning indoor / outdoor lobby bar and lounge, loaded with contemporary creature comforts and all-day live DJ sets.

An authentic, open plan Italian restaurant with al-fresco seating is being created by Italian chef - Michele Rodelli, and the hotel's signature Japanese teppanyaki restaurant Kuramastu will also be re-styled and enhanced.

Bringing a youthful architectural sophistication to the new-look exteriors and public areas of the former cinema is Johhny and Paul Kember of award winning Hong Kong-based international design house K plus K.

Scheduled to relaunch in the 1st quarter of 2010, the 46-room boutique property foresees an increase in international and national travelers next year due to the 2010 Shanghai Expo.

Located in a surprisingly quiet Jing An district residential street that is right next door to the high-traffic New Factories nightlife zone, the hotel occupies the former 1950’s Jiangning Cinema. It is renowned for theatrical rooms and interiors by edgy, young American-French designer Dillon Garris.

IVY Shanghai is the first mainland hotel by CHI International, operators of unique resorts and serviced apartments.
