Guanyin, Iron Goddess of Mercy

One of our most commented-upon artefacts in Hutong is the beautiful, some say mesmerising bronze statue which stands directly opposite the moon-gate into the Shanghai Bar. Familiar to many of our guests but perhaps less so to others, the subject of this work of art is Guanyin (觀音), also known as the Iron Goddess of Mercy.

The Cocktail Lovers love our cocktails!

When our bars manager Myles Donneky launched our new cocktail list earlier this year, we were quietly confident that his innovative bing cha or ‘iced tea’ cocktails and Chinese-influenced classics and new creations would be popular with our guests – and that’s certainly proved to be the case!

Feel better with our ‘Cocktail Cures’!

Chinese medicine is an ancient practice which employs herbs and plants to treat myriad conditions of the body and mind. For many centuries, the Chinese have chosen to use this traditional method in preference to ‘modern’ medicine, believing its natural, drug-free approach to be more beneficial to the human body than man-made medicaments.

Wishing to honour this long tradition respectfully but not without a little humour, the team in our Shanghai Bar developed our list of ‘Cocktail Cures’ –  recipes using just a few of the many hundreds of ingredients which practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine believe to be beneficial.
