Parkview Green Beijing, our favourite building in China (and that is not just because we have our office there or they are a client…it really is our favourite building), celebrated its 1st anniversary in style.
The building was transformed for the gala evening ‘Imagined by Cirque du Soleil’. With thousands in attendance, the main bar serving champagne, vodka shots and all manner of cocktails, was buzzing while the amazing in-mall restaurants set up food stalls serving all manner of culinary delights.
Prior to the main performance, Cirque du Soleil dancers, mime artists and clowns brought a colourful infusion to the blue-themed crowd. Lollipop lifts, jazz musicians and LED wristbands that came spiralling down from 20 floors up heightened the excitement as the acrobats appeared on the custom-built trapeze installation.
After many oohs and aahs and rapturous applause from the open-jawed crowd, the party had still only just begun as the stage welcomed award winning UK DJs Krafty Kuts and A.Skillz.
We have been lucky to enjoyed many events around the world, but this was definitely by far the coolest party in a shopping mall we have ever been to and we loved being part of it all.
