"Ye Shanghai" Candle-Lighting Ceremony
Every Evening in The Lobby at
A fitting dress with a high Mandarin collar and equally high slits, the qipao was the height of fashion in the 1930s. Tailored to flatter the slim figures of Shanghainese women, it became the pinnacle of Shanghai’s fashion culture and established the city as the fashion center of China.
Beautifully dressed, the city’s elite would flock to Nanking Theater to watch foreign films. Today, the theater has been renamed Shanghai Concert Hall, home to the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.
Despite this modern day, cosmopolitan landscape known as the “Paris of the East,” the links to the past remain strong.
Allow us to transport you back to the nostalgic golden era with our “Ye Shanghai" Candle-Lighting Ceremony. Performed by our elegantly clad ladies and gentlemen, the lighting ceremony marks the start of the evening – one that fills you with a sense of place and memorable experiences as you head out into the city of glamour and wonderment.
