Capella Shanghai Jian Ye Li Grand Opening

The beautiful Capella Shanghai Jian Ye Li officially opened its doors last weekend with a spectacular 1930s Grand Opening. A proud moment for Nicholas Clayton, CEO of Capella Hotel Group Asia and Dorian Rommel, General Manager of Capella Shanghai Jian Ye Li, as they welcomed over 150 guests, media and partners into the boutique property. A series of actors and actresses posed in 1930s Shanghai style adding a unique touch to the event, with vintage movies flickering on the courtyard walls, a live Jazz band setting the tone and a Shi Qi Hua fashion show by Rose Dai, a student of the Fashion Institute Marangoni in Shanghai. Guests were then welcomed into the restaurant – le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire where the champagne flowed and food delighted in the classic Parisian setting reminiscent of Shanghai’s old-world glamour. Riviera Shanghai thoroughly enjoyed supporting the occasion and we have no doubt that this will be the perfect venue for future events.
