"The rumours are true – KOR is bound for Shanghai. In late 2019, Taipei’s award-winning super lounge will debut in Shanghai’s bustling Jing’an District at Wheelock Square.
KOR Shanghai will retain the same sparkling DNA as its Taipei headquarters in terms of look and feel, but will altogether offer Shanghai an elevated experience from its predecessor. Its glamorous black, white and gold interior will carry over to the mainland as will the oriental-inspired cocktail program and hip-hop forward format (read: EDM-free). New enhancements for Shanghai include almost double the square footage, a supercharged sound system (which says a lot considering its current custom chrome gold setup), a restaurant led by Executive Chef Jensen Pei, and an all-day tapas-inspired menu based on the culinary exploits of AC Global, a culinary design and consulting house owned by Michelin-starred Chef André Chiang.
KOR Shanghai is helmed by theLOOP (KOR Taipei, OMNI Nightclub, Alta Nightclub), who is the brand’s inventor and innovator, alongside Shanghai’s own MUSE Group (The Nest, Cannery) who together have created the perfect scene for A-list celebrities and influential musicians to rub shoulders with the glitterati of Shanghai’s social scene for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, all the way through to late-night libations."
