IVY Shanghai Closing for Revamp

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Thursday, 24 September 2009

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.
