Chengdu – Creddie Workshop is an R&D space for bartenders that doubles as a cocktail bar.
By day, the space is designed for bartenders to develop and test new cocktails using a variety of ingredients. By night, it transforms into the Tasting Room, a bar that invites the public to taste the new cocktails being developed in the workshop. Each concoction has its own ID card featuring the recipe and research notes from the bartender.
The workshop also provides technical consultancy, drink menu development and training for other bars and bartenders around the city. By shifting from a daytime workspace to a night-time venue, the bar offers cocktail-makers the chance to gain real feedback from customers.
The bar is developing the concept of Edible Incubators, spaces that foster collaboration to create new food and drink products.
