Live Legends brings the club experience in China to a new dimension


Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province in east China, lies close to the mouth of the Qiantang River at the western end of the Gulf of Hangzhou.  Its clubbing scene has just been expanded with the opening of a brand new One Third.

One Third Hangzhou is the third family member to be rolled out after OT-Kun in Kunming earlier this year, and One Third Beijing two years ago.

The One Third vibe is all about the story of an old factory that comes to life. Live Legends delivered all creative elements from concept to execution, including show production, interior and technical design which included co-ordinating all the visual disciplines and optimising the guest experience with their usual flare and imagination.

Old Train Factory

The area where this club is built, used to be a train station, which was pulled down in summer of 1997. The station’s capacity could hardly cope with the future demands, so they built a new one. A few years later the government told an architect to rebuilt the area and keep the elements alive of the old train station.

The actual One Third building was a ancient foundry, which we turned into an old train factory.

Live Legends Records

We have just released our second single (after the first single “Children Of The Future” – One Third Beijing)– the club anthem “Gone” that they produced for the One Third Hangzhou show set under the banner Live Legends Records, their first foray into music production. Our second single can be dowloaded soon. Stay tuned…
