Up until four years ago, Celeste Chong could not imagine life without alcohol.
Her formula for life then was simple: “All I knew was drinking and getting s**t done.”
An avid clubber since she was 19, Celeste co-founded the iconic club Butter Factory at age 26, along with three friends. The party venue located at One Fullerton shuttered in 2015 after nearly a decade.
The go-getter went on to join global beauty company L’Oreal before heading up the marketing department for co-working space The Great Room. At the same time, she started a theatre and events company, Bite Me Productions.
But through all her achievements, the one constant was her battle with alcohol addiction and anxiety, which her work and lifestyle helped to hide.
