It’s not every day you get a chance to invest in a bar. Especially something as original as PimpShuei. Inspired by retro Kung Fu films (you know, the ones where Bruce Lee jumps seven feet into the air in slo-mo then lands on the ground and single-handedly k-o’s a dozen bad boys? Yup those), Sipheng You’s new London bar will have all the coolness of Mr Lee (good drinks, great location, fab team), with some of the playfulness of the films (Kung Fu flaring, funky sound track and film clips that will make you want to perfect your Wing Chun moves.)
But we’re jumping the gun a bit here. PimpShuei is yet to open. Sipheng, together with backers JJ Goodman from the London Cocktail Club are looking to raise £15,000 in order to get the project off the ground. Here’s where you come in. Donate anything from a teeny, tiny £5 through to a rocker feller-stylee £5,000 by Saturday 15th June and not only will you get that lovely glow of knowing you’ve done something fab but you’ll be rewarded for your efforts.
£5 gets you a PimpSheui fortune cookie and a shot of house spirit, for £25 you can enjoy two fortune cookies and two cocktails from the menu. There are plenty of price points to get involved, including £15, £30, £50, right through to £500. The top one is £5,000, which buys you an invite for five with free cocktails all night at the grand opening night; five T-shirts and hoodies; an eight-hour masterclass for five; free cocktails for five on your birthday and a 50% discount for life. All that and your name on the thank you page declaring you as a No 1 Supporter.
