During these tough couple of months, it has really become clear to us what is important to the core value of our business - to create true value & impact whilst doing good for our community. Our 10th edition menu - “Bar Hopeless” will dedicate to the ones who has been forgotten, the ones facing uphill battles, the ones who’s been dealt a losing hand, the ones feeling truly - hopeless.
As a cocktail bar, indeed it is important to stay on the cutting edge of innovation & creativity, but this should not get in the way of us doing better by doing good, which is why we will focus on fair trade ingredients and supporting a local charity with our proceeds.
The tomatoes, cherries, pears and other fruits used in this menu are purchased directly from farmers, certified by Taobao. In modern times, farmers have often been taken advantage of by large cooperations, sacrificing their profit margins in exchange for orders. By cutting our the middlemen, we make sure the farmers are properly rewarded for their efforts.
For each cocktail sold from our “Bar Hopeless” menu, us and supporting brands will be donating 5RMB to Wilber Foundation, a Guangzhou-based charity focusing on paying medical bills for sick and terminally ill children who’s family cannot afford surgery or treatment. Wilber Foundation will make sure all the proceeds are deposited directly to the children’s account at the hospital to avoid misuse of funds. Our team will also volunteer at the Wilber Children home, acting as big bothers and sisters to children awaiting medical treatment or “left-behind children” who are visiting their parents in large cities during school holidays.
