The Temple House, a modern House known as “The House of Contrast” for its contemporary design yet historic location, marked its eighth anniversary on 8 August with a remarkable Summer Neon Party. For the special celebration, we invited our cherished House friends to enjoy a delightful evening, bringing together eight nationally and internationally renowned mixologists.
"We are immensely proud to reach our 8th anniversary, and to share this milestone with our valued friends," says Simon McHendry, General Manager of The Temple House. "The concept of the celebration encapsulates our commitment to embracing tradition, fostering innovation, and leading the way in sustainable luxury hospitality. We look forward to welcoming everyone to our House, where they can enjoy an authentic Chengdu experience, and build more unforgettable memories with us!”
For this celebration, the House had eight renowned mixologists to shake and stir. Besides our very own William Zhang, Head Bartender of JING at The Temple House, other mixologists were Millie Tang, who was listed among this year's Drinks International Bar World 100 Most Influential, as well as Eddy Yang, winner of the 2018 DMBA Founders Award and a well-known mixologist in China. Joining them are Jackwing Yao, founder of SPIN Bar in Guangzhou, William Wu, founder and Head Bartender of La Saloon in Chongqing, and Fraser, co-founder and CEO of The Rambler Gin, as well as two mixologists from The House Collective; Harry Zhang, Bar Manager of Union at The Opposite House Beijing and Matthew Hall, Bar Manager at The Middle House Shanghai. The eight mixologists have ingeniously crafted a series of whimsical cocktails inspired by Neon colors, perfectly complementing the festive ambiance of the anniversary celebration.
The Temple House's eighth-anniversary celebration also showcases an array of captivating installations, each one thoughtfully designed, conveying the theme of the number "8". These artful creations, meticulously crafted from a variety of materials, come together to form a visually striking scene on the lawn. Each "8" signifies one of the core elements that define the House's identity, including Historical Sense, Sustainability, Wellness, Art, Creativity, Timelessness, Trends and Mode.
Historical Sense is a tribute to the heritage buildings that our House has embraced and preserved throughout the years. Sustainability reflects our unwavering commitment to environmentally conscious practices, honoring our dedication to protecting both the natural world and local communities. Wellness showcases our dedication to nurturing health and wellbeing, and Art represents our profound admiration for art in all its forms, as it adorns our spaces and elevates the aesthetic experience for all who visit.
Creativity signifies our passion for innovation, showcasing our ceaseless pursuit of fresh and captivating ways to enthrall both our guests and community. Timelessness and Trends harmoniously blend in our House, celebrating the enduring allure of timeless traditions that blend seamlessly with modern comforts, ensuring a captivating ambiance that is both rooted in heritage and ahead of the curve. Mode exemplifies our ability to stay at the forefront of the latest buzz, ensuring our guests' experiences remain vibrant, exciting, and ever-evolving.
