Party in a Box! Going Wild in Container Night Clubs!


Shipping Containers are designed to transport freight in rough weather conditions for long distances. They are also all built according one international standard, so that the loading of container ships can be optimized. Later on, their structure inspired architects to design modular houses and now containers are used also e.g. as hotels, stores and offices. Now they are also building night clubs out of containers.


Shipping containers have strong foundations on each of four corners. The foundations enable stacking and piling them into huge real estate complexes. A Singaporean company Venue VBox is using this feature to build mobile discotheques out of containers.


The company’s “Night Box” pop-up nightclub is a container systems that can hold 500 people. Such systems are applied also in other countries. For instance New Orleans’ 2009 and 2010 Voodoo Music experience event has had VIP lounges made of shipping containers. It has been more common for businesses to open a temporary bar for crowded events by using a single container. Used containers cost between US 1000 and 2000. The price, mobility and overall attractiveness makes containers a great solution for arranging mobile parties.


Such internationally standardized containers can be purchased from Shanghai Metal Corporation. We offer basic containers, open-top containers and refrigerated containers to name but a few. More information can be found in our website. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. We have also launched a mobile application that you can download by scanning the QR code below.

Did You Know There Are 14 Kinds Of Spoon?

Lost and Confused Signpost

Have you ever been invited to a really fancy restaurant and been lost with the rules? Maybe you would like to host a fancy or themed dinner party but it seemed a lot of work?


Cutlery can get complicated– for example each of the fourteen spoons has a different use – the obvious teaspoon, to the obscure five o clock spoon which is apparently for afternoon tea.  Then there’s the place setting and the etiquette – just remember with cutlery work from the outside inwards, course by course. Worst case you can bring this along:


Another thing that can get confusing is which cutlery to even buy – should you impress with silver or invest in stainless steel?  When it comes to flatware, some metals require more care than others. Sterling silver and silver plate tarnish, whereas stainless steel is comparatively easy to care for. Sterling silver cutlery is easily cared for using vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, olive oil or lemon juice.


Regarding pricing, stainless steel can vary depending on quality i.e. nickel content. This is shown by the depiction 18/10, 18/8 or 18/0 where the second number is the nickel percentage – the higher it is the better quality. So ultimately stainless steel cutlery can give both the finish and affordability you need for your big night.


Shanghai Metal manufactures high quality stainless steel cutlery at competitive prices. Stainless Steel Cutlery and Flatware is designed for the modern household and today’s modern lifestyle. Casual dining is at the core of the stainless steel cutlery collection, which is composed of 304 unique stainless steel pieces. The SMC stainless steel cutlery collection accepts custom design and guarantees quality stainless steel products. To find out more,  please visit our websiteLinkedInTwitter, and Facebook.
