This Friday, taking advantage of the Ecclestone's circus passing through Shanghai, and of Alguersuari having scored its first two points... Spanish Fiesta! But no, this is not a regular party like any other ...
It is the reentré of the Signal Tower, which after more than a year closed by the works of the Bund, has taken to reform the entire local and this is the premiere! You are going to freak out, if before it was already one of the most exquisite places of the city, with the best views, now with new furniture on the terrace, new sound equipment and a new pedestrian promenade of the Bund -without stinky tofu posts around the corner- it is unparalleled in Shanghai. In case you didn't know, this metheorological tower was built 103 years ago by a Spanish architect, disciple of Gaudí, whom we only know the Chinese name, Atanu (hence the official name of bar). It is said that in those days it became the tallest building in the whole of China! (we need to double check this data ...)
Anyway: the party is this Friday April 16th, from 21h, and the reason could be none other than F1. Anybody wearing any piece of F1 merchandise, will have a free tequila shot. And we have prime-sponsors: Rives (gin & rum), WineBond wines and Tequila Quiote. Of course, we will dance to the rhythm of the Spanish eighties scene with the impressive Pudong skyline in the background...
The House of Spain will donate its proceeds to the association Love Without Boundaries, with which we have collaborated in the past, and is committed to the surgical care of Chinese orphans. In particular, this time we want to help little Jia, who has a tumor in her tummy and we want her to have all the guarantees of a decent health care.
