Cloud 9 Project @ Caravelle Saigon

The Event will showcase 9 original black and white pen and ink line drawings by celebrated English bartender/artist (Bartist) Richie Fawcett from The Studio Saigon.





The Event will showcase 9 original black and white pen and ink line drawings by celebrated English bartender/artist (Bartist) Richie Fawcett from The Studio Saigon.

Richie will be creating a live sketch performance art showcase throughout the event that will pair art with cocktails, cuisine with live violin and guitar accompaniment for a first of its kind unique and different event that brings together the inspirational talents of music, bar, culinary and visual arts altogether in one showcase event. 

This truly promises to break new ground in delivering uniquely creative abilities in all the sensory disciplines of taste (both cocktails and canapés), sound, and visual arts all at the same time.

Richie has painstakingly been recording the development of Saigon for the last 7 plus years since moving to Vietnam 8 gyears ago. This art and cocktail project brings together a fresh new and fun concept of creating drawings of the principal main towers of the central district of Ho Chi Minh City with a cocktail that represents each tower. The common fact that links all the buildings is that at one stage in the towers life it was the tallest in the city, starting with the Basilica in 1880 and ending with Landmark 81 in 2018, spanning 138 years of the city’s history. 

The style is a truly unique and different technique, with some of the larger works taking up to 70 hours to complete over the course of several months.

The event will feature 3 drawings of the Caravelle hotel from various view points made by Richie over the last 7 years, together with large format originals of the Basilica and Landmark 81.

On the evening of the event, One of the Caravell origials will be tendered for silent auction. During the month of July the two remaining originals will be available for silent auction, with 100% of all proceeds going towards Heartbeat Vietnam Childrens charity.
This promises to be a unique, different, and fun event with an opportunity to meet the bartist himself and sample the signature cloud 9 project cocktails and original art collection first hand.

These events do not happen very often.

This is a private invitation only event on Wednesday 3rd July, however this is an opportunity to attend if you follow the instructions below .

The project will continue to run throughout the whole month of July at The Café de L’Opera, where the cocktails can be sampled and the original art bid for by silent auction, with 100% of the proceeds of the sketches featuring the Caravelle, going to Heartbeat Vietnam.
