The 「Sunset Café」is also called “SAN SHENG Canteen” in Chinese and is derived from the former “SAN SHENG Tea Shop”.“Sunset” is not only the setting sun of sunset,lazy warm;but more homophonic with “SAN SHENG”,hope to keep the memory of old Chengdu.
从筹备期间的Pop-up Café开始，“三圣盖碗咖啡”就已经在成都掀起了一股打卡热潮。几个月后，新开业的「Sunset Café」便成了成都常日最多潮人聚集的咖啡店之一。
Since the pop-up Cafe in preparation,“SAN SHENG Covered Bowl Coffee” has become a punch-card craze in Chengdu.A few months later,the newly opened Sunset Cafe was one of the city‘s most trendy coffee shops.
「风格·融合」「Style · Fusion」
“European Street Cafe” is the source of the spatial design concept,creating a casual sense of returning to the essence of life, rather than deliberately stacking design.We want everything to be reasonable, textured and accessible.When the design is out of the expected, conventional definition,style is not enough to express the whole commercial image of a brand.For “Sunset Cafe”,simplicity, industry,retro,trend and mix are all turned into a small element,which is combined with the hand of design in the space and becomes the real experience of the space users.
「文化·平台」「Culture · Platform」
From the very beginning of the design,Sunset was defined as a cultural spatial carrier,infiltrating into different consumption scenes.
Early in the morning,the white-collars working in near office came to buy a cup of americano in a hurry,and said good morning to the barista.Then,a couple of freelancers were sitting by their computers with a glass of Flat White and a little burger for brunch.At noon,groups of girls posed for pictures of tureen coffee and joked about gaining weight with an extra bite of spaghetti.With any luck,the afternoon Sunset will create a warm atmosphere under the setting sun,bringing new life to the old street along with paintings on the walls and elaborate art installations.When the sun set,the lights dimmed and the music became rhythmic.With a cup of gin and tonic,you’ll have plenty to talk with your partner.
You can come to Sunset for a coffee,pasta and do some work.You can also be aimless,listening to our selected music,staring at the sunset in a daze.Or meet a special flash mob and have a chat and a drink with your new friend.This is probably the ideal state for the Sunset Cafe.
We often say that it is not easy to see the sun in Chengdu City.But if you often come to Sunset in the afternoon,I believe you can see lots of sunset.As if to remind you,hey, it’s time to go home.
