There are many ways to describe the absolute attraction of Tianjin Happy SOHO Bar and why it has remained to be both tourists鈥 and local鈥檚 choice for partying, good music and nightlife in Tianjin for the past 13 years.

 

Happy SOHO Bar situated in Binhai New Area TEDA Development Zone could very well pack a great performance every night. This June 14th, Happy SOHO Bar will host another highly successful Anniversary Party to celebrate its 13th year.


Among its many milestones was receiving the Best Music Bar award in 2006; winning the 2012 Tianjin Advanced Cultural Prize and being recognized in many regional cultural cooperation awards and literary civilization units in Binhai New district.

TP 201906 cover 02

So, as a way of looking back and stepping forward into many more years of its vibrancy and growth, Tianjin Plus Magazine interviewed Happy SOHO Bar management and staff who made it all possible.


In an interview with Happy SOHO Bar鈥檚 Milkshake band, whose members hail from the Philippines, they explained how the guests praise Happy SOHO Bar as a highlight of their Tianjin trip. And so for the past four years, this 7-member band makes sure that every night is worth the visit.

The band鈥檚 specialty is delivering powerful and magnetizing Pop Rock performances, culling from a wide 300-song repertoire, which they have perfected and continue to add on over the years. 鈥淲e acquired techniques and styles from the different countries we have been to," Jon says, which allowed them to cater to the audience preference and elevate the mood for the night. When they are not performing, they go out of their way to strike a conversation with the guests and make them feel at ease.

 

When asked about their top memorable events at Happy SOHO Bar, they mentioned the Chinese New Year, Halloween and of course Happy SOHO Bar鈥檚 yearly anniversary. During CNY, patrons bring their family members to celebrate and have fun. On the other hand, Halloween is most popular among foreign guests, who are just as excited for a night of partying in their costumes. Of course, the much prepared for event is Happy SOHO Bar鈥檚 anniversary every June, where the band is just as excited to astound the audience once again with their seamless music, specially made costumes, and thematic acts.

All components of Milkshake Band are waiting for you, Jon (Guitar & Band Leader), Carl (Singer), Jhoanne (Singer), Miah (Singer), Boyet (Bass), Jayson (Keyboard) and Ferdz (Drummer). Don鈥檛 hesitate to talk with them and ask any of your favourite song. They will try their best to please you.


DSC 0003Happiness is palpable Everyone feels like family

Every Thursday afternoon, Happy SOHO Bar鈥檚 dancers practice for the weekend show. What started as 6 dancers back in 2006 have grown to a troop of 18, who get to stage some feisty solo or team sets, as well as exceptional acts, such as the high-altitude silk lace dance, and the hoop and pole act by Russian and Ukraine dancers.

DSC 0351While they consider every performance night as unique, they enjoy the Tequila and Jaeger parties the most as there are flowing drinks and everybody is raving to dance and just have a good time. What makes the Happy SOHO Bar dancers special aside from their amazing presence is how they take their craft seriously, starting with their personal fitness, the regular practices and sharpening up their English to be able to converse with the crowd.

鈥淚鈥檝e worked with other bars before, but the work environment at Happy SOHO Bar is friendlier, everyone feels like family and this is felt by the guests, too鈥, as Ksenia would happily share during our interview. In fact, even the security guard notes that in his stay, he did not encounter any serious brawls, and all the girls feel secure.

If you鈥檙e an active person who loves to party, you鈥檒l probably be most thinking about coming to Happy SOHO Bar, and meet the attractive and sensual dancers Dasha, Alina, Alla, Olya, Alina, Elena and Ksenia from Ukraine, and Irina and Sofia from Russia. We specially enjoy the exciting Pole Dance show of Ksenia and the high-attitude lace dance performs by Sofia.

Same traditions but finer execution

Talking to fancy bartender David this time is like getting a glimpse from the bar鈥檚 past. He has joined Happy SOHO Bar since its opening in 2006 and recalled how it grew to be very famous in the development zone. Of course, bartending is a form of entertainment and one specific memory that comes to mind is how David executed the flaming shots with expertly crafted drinks piled one over the other and guests would have to take a shot immediately once the flames end. He鈥檚 so good in what he does that he is often invited by major hotels to showcase his wine-blending performances.

 

In his many years of working for Happy SOHO Bar, he has made countless good friends. 鈥淪OHO connects people鈥 we鈥檙e like their friendly neighbour鈥, he says. In the years that will follow, David set it upon himself to continue many of the traditions, while improving on the finer details of execution and service.

Bringing the experience from other countries back home
Remembering when it first started, Happy SOHO Bar General Manager, Isabella Wang, recalled how her elder sister, Angela had this idea to open the bar in 2006. The bar was originally named Angela鈥檚.

 

Angela, being a global traveller, saw the opportunity to open a bar in Teda, since at that time she saw how locals, but especially foreigners, don鈥檛 have a good place to go at night when they want to chill and relax after a hard day鈥檚 work.

When Angela decided to move permanently overseas, it was her sister Isabella who took over the bar鈥檚 management in 2011, when it was already called Happy SOHO Bar, reminiscent of Central London鈥檚 famous district of late-night, cocktail and house party bars.

 

Isabella shared how they have managed to keep up with the times. For instance, their choice of bands has changed for the past 10 years, as they aim to feature the kind of live music which their audience would really enjoy. They also hired foreign dancers when they saw how their stunning pole dancing routine is becoming a trend.

鈥淲e want to mix it up, electronic music with live band sessions and choices of dance routines. We want people to find something different to like here鈥, she muses.

 

As electronic house music is a must in every music bar, Happy SOHO Bar prides itself with its resident, DJ Kevin, who has participated in several well-known international music festivals, including the Tomorrowland Electronic music festival in Belgium in 2009, the BaiWei Music storm in 2016 and have recently served as the main DJ in the 2018 Coastal Marathon Electric sound stage. DJ Kevin aims to bring the latest music trends and the Ibiza atmosphere to Tianjin.

Happy SOHO Bar brings happy memories 鈥 our hearts didn鈥檛 change
Does Isabella find it challenging to manage an international staff of 100 people and countless new performances every night? Isabella says that while they all differ in nationality, it is good entertaining that ties them together. She makes sure to keep everyone in the loop during regular meetings and be open to hearing suggestions on how they can improve further.


Many of their performers go back to own countries or cities for some time, but they always want to find their way back to Happy SOHO Bar.


鈥淭hey come back, because they feel that Happy SOHO Bar is their place鈥, and Isabella wants to keep it that way.

DSC 6415
Happy SOHO Bar represents happy memories and true enough, they want to extend this happiness also to the community. It is a regular tradition for Isabella and her staff to participate in marathons, do charity projects for special children and other government projects.


"That's why we became a top destination, because even taxi drivers and hotels recommend Happy SOHO Bar to their guests", she happily mentions.


As long as people are happy, this bar is for you. Happy SOHO Bar is part of your family.
