City life resembles the soothing sea's embrace against the shore, where amidst the daily hustle, we follow routine. Take a pause, find a purpose. In August's night, let happiness trickle like a serene stream. We dance to music, relishing a glass of Re-C's most comforting whisky and cocktail.

The Theatre


Navigating through the summer crowd, one yearns for a space to breathe in fresh air. The long, hot days of summer make the nights a welcome respite for inhaling the crisp air, a "liquid oxygen" of wine flavors. Choosing the sole option is worry-free; the familiar theater, kissed by sea breezes, still offers a fresh wine selection.

The Theatre, L1-145, No.346 Fuhua Road, Futian
