From October 16-17, an Electric Carnival was staged at the poolside bar of W Shanghai – The Bund. From the afternoon until the wee hours of the morning, the enthusiasm of Latin American style continued to ignite the night through exotic food, drinks and performances. The warmth of summer undulated throughout the entire weekend.
With the invasion of a giant piñata – hailing from Mexico – the Latin American-style Electric Carnival kicked off at the W Hotel on the Bund in Shanghai. Following kickoff, an interactive session of breaking the piñata took place, fun for everyone involved.
After many tries, the piñata exploded, revealing a shower of colors to match the bright decorations and to celebrate this joyous event. With decorations abound and a dynamic beat, an air of passionate energy enveloped the entire space.
To create an immersive and exotic atmosphere, W Shanghai – The Bund meticulously designed a creative food and drinks menu, drawing on inspirations from the snack culture of Mexico. The filling tacos, grilled corn and churros kept everyone full and happy, enjoying the spice of Latin America. Using South American fruits, the bar team blending up a variety of libations, each more colorful than the last.
The sparkling shades from the outdoor poolside bar coupled with the elaborate carnival dance floor blossomed into a celebration of the ages. Overlooking the Huangpu River, many cocktails were sipped, flavors were relished and bodies were grooving to the lively music.
Although summer is coming to an end and the final pool days have been lived out, W Shanghai – The Bund will continue to stage events, including trendy music at the WOOBAR paired with a cocktail journey and Juice Bar specials. Plus, with the upcoming holidays, expect lots of fun for Thanksgiving and Christmas with feasts abound.
