The Peace hotel is steeped in history. The original chinese mafias meeting spot, music, money and jazz. The Art Deco design is beautiful and the hotel has a beautiful restaurant and cafe and is just lovely to walk around. The jazz bar is just the...More

The Peace Hotel in Shanghai is a throw-back to the 1930's and the jazz club tries to reflect that. The house band, called the Old Jazz Band, is famous and many visitors to Shanghai think this is a must-see attraction. So did I, and let...More

It's definitely a must see (at least once) if you are traveling in Shanghai and like to listen to Jazz. The place has a nice decor, the music is good and clear. A bit outdated though but I guess it is supposed to be. To...More

Upon recommendation we spontaneously decided to visit the legendary Jazz Club inside the historic Peace Hotel at The Bund - and did NOT regret our decision! You absolutely need to go there if you want to experience a setting and musical entertainment like in the...More

I was so impressed by my first visit for breakfast at the Jazz Club that I made a subsequent visit prior to my departure from Shanghai. Three points worthy of note. 1) The variety might be fairly similar to most top-notch hotels but the quality...More

Average, they look totally bored , and sounded so. There is also a cover charge of 400 in weekend p/p and 200 week days p/p, seriously this is a joke. Very very disappointed.

We visited the Jazz Club expecting real music. While the atmosphere was lovely and the drinks were delicious, the music was terrible. With no disrespect to the musicians, who were obviously successful in their prime, the selections were mundane and the music was poorly played...More

Modern jazz, good cocktails and pleasantly surprised that we were able to continue a conversation over the band! The double bass player was a celebrity in his own right, being 87 now and having played for the band since 1980. Cocktails are on the pricey...More

I don't usually share reviews on tripadvisor unless I have a super good or bad experience. I made a booking for two last Thursday and called twice to confirm the booking and minimum spend per person (300 RMB each. They said when booking). I arrived...More

Surprisingly intimate jazz club that fills up quickly at night. There are two shifts of musicians. Before 9:30, the players are older (many over 75). Their playing gets better as you have a few drinks and the singer arrives at 8:30PM. After 9:30, a slightly...More

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
