Lunar New Year Celebration

Celebrate the Lunar New Year in grandeur with a spectacular giant dragon art installation, an awe-inspiring symbol of prosperity and good fortune for 2024 – the Year of the Dragon. This magnificent creation, towering over the atrium, is a breathtaking fusion of traditional and contemporary artistry, featuring intricate details, vibrant colors, and dynamic movement to captivate the essence of the mythical creature. Designed and installed by local Chinese architect and artist My Ly.

Infusing the celebration with the cherished tradition of red envelopes during the Lunar New Year, My Ly ingeniously incorporates them into the dragon’s spine, tail and head. The dragon sculpture gracefully weaves in the symbolism of prosperity and good luck, with each red envelope contributing to the vibrant tapestry of this cultural activation. This artistic endeavor pays homage to the significance of the dragon and seamlessly integrates the age-old customs that make the Lunar New Year a time-honored and cherished celebration.

In addition, food and beverage activations are inspired by the Year of the Dragon, including a specialty cocktail menu in the bar and lounge after 5pm. View the menu here.
