Gem of Jing An
Luxury in the heart of Shanghai
A Golden Circle appreciation dinner was held on 25 July 2013 at Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai, the newly opened 508 room hotel situated in the city’s most fashionable neighbourhood.
Members were treated to an evening of art, fine dining, vintage wines and a preview of exquisite jewellery. Cocktails and a sneak peek at Qeelin’s new King and Queen collection was followed by a tour of hotel pieces by renowned Chinese contemporary artists Zeng Fan Zhi and Zhou Chun Ya.
Dinner at Summer Palace paired Cantonese cuisine with wine from Château Pape Clément, one of Bordeaux’s oldest vineyards. Pairings of the culinary extravaganza included braised sliced abalone with Château Pape Clément Rouge 2008, tiger prawns cooked two ways with Château Pape Clément Rouge 2006 and Australian beef with vegetables with Château Pape Clément Rouge 2005.
Guests took home goodie bags with Shangri-La teapot gift boxes, Qeelin poker cards, a Kerry Wines voucher and a voucher for a complimentary Deluxe Room stay to experience the impressive new hotel famed for its opulent design.
