Shang Social opens at Jewel Changi
Shangri-La Group’s first standalone restaurant Shang Social has opened at Jewel Changi.
The 220-seat venue, designed to cater to a variety of occasions with a formal dining space, casual market and bar, pays tribute to three distinctive Chinese cuisines – Cantonese, Huaiyang, and Sichuanese.
Designed by Takenouchi Webb, the concept features a modern take on traditional elements fusing both Chinese and local cultural elements via a creative mixed use of colours, textures, and patterns.
Materials such as hand-painted silk panels, light oak timber, marble, and polished plaster are combined with subtle Chinese motifs to provide depth and layering in the different areas to enhance the poetics of the overall ambience of the space – reinforcing the local cultural appeal.
The grand opening kicked off with a customary lion dance performance and a ribbon cutting ceremony with the participation of Shangri-La Group CEO Tan Aik Peng, Jewel Changi Airport Development CEO Hung Jean, and the group’s three master chefs.
Shangri-La Group currently owns and/or manages more than 100 hotels globally in 75 destinations under the Shangri-La, Kerry, Hotel Jen and Traders brands.
