From the Chop Chop Club:
UNICO Shanghai has decided to stop its operation, due to commercial difficulties. As an inevitable consequence and our greatest disappointment, The Chop Chop Club has to follow suit and shut down at once.
Historically, Paul Pairet was commissioned by UNICO Shanghai to develop a new restaurant concept to strengthen their existing operation in 3 on The Bund.
The Chop Chop Club opened its door in March 2017. Despite a promising start with a unique concept and food style, the new restaurant could not compensate for the unexpected, but inexorable drop of UNICO’s bar and club activities.
Ultimately, UNICO could not find the resources to implement the strategic shift of the entire operation under The Chop Chop Club banner, and were compelled to stop abruptly the Shanghai operation.
Paul Pairet, who considers The Chop Chop Club as one of his most mature concepts as of today, sincerely regrets but understands UNICO’s commercial decision. Paul is thankful to all his loyal clients, suppliers and to all the team that have committed so much effort and passion.
