Welcome to The Manhattan Trading Co., a multi-faceted, mind-blowing experience of drinking, eating and entertainment. This stunning bar & restaurant, located at Fairmont Hotel Chengdu, China, was opened in Dec 2018.



Think 1920’s prohibition, Manhattan, Jay Gatsby, an era of Wild Abandon, decadence, swanky parties, speakeasies and cop raids. Having been transported by a dedicated express lift, guests enter into a vault of beveled mirror screens under a metal canopy where they are greeted by a beautiful hostess before making their grand entry. A large circular Tiffany blue glass grand stair encircles the triple height glass tower, which houses the DJ booth, and leads the guests up to a mezzanine floor to the main restaurant. Its dramatic in both style and volume. The lower section is encased in an impressive selection of liquor, whilst inside the tower raised above the bottles the DJ works her decks. It's all show, and simply oozes 1920’s glamour.



Guests feel as though they have entered somewhere with a legacy. Rich Timber clad walls and deco moldings make the space feel exquisite and rich, a place for the socialites to gather. Oiled wood, beveled cut glass, and herringbone parquet floors add a touch of luxury. Leathers upholstered buttoned barstools, and high wingback loungers, timeless high-quality furniture give the space a very solid and established feeling.



The Platform is a continuation of the main WoW bar space, tucked around the corner and under the mezzanine, think Alley cats, jazz nights, gangster mobs and great escapes. It is the ultimate spot to relax with your friends, both raw and refined. A true Manhattan bar at 7m long, embellished with brass pipes, black metal trusses and a vaulted brick ceiling extending to the back wall of the bar, evokes a sense of back alley. Deep blue vaulted alcoves line the windows providing cozy niches for privacy. Step inside and the back wall looks like a bell boys’ trolley bursting over with vintage leather cases. One push of the trolley’s rich brass handle and a secret world of hand cut cigar and rare whiskies unfolds.
