Overview

A stylish and beautiful spa lounge since 2004 ~ French concession Hidden Gem. Down a quiet lane in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the French Concession, you stumble upon Diva Life. WOW! It’s so quaint and fun and Chinese but not Chinese at the same time… it’s just a wonderful location to while away an hour or a few treating yourself to a massage, facial, waxing, manicure or pedicure. The staff speak excellent English and are very eager to please. The manager Yvonne is extremely well tuned to western needs since she went to university in Boston, USA. Built in 1933, this historical three-storey complex was once the home of a Jewish wine merchant, H.L.MENKEN, who had moved to Shanghai from Russia with his family since 1930 due to the volatility caused by World War I. His father was once the publisher of a local Jewish daily back in St. Petersburg, since then, MENKEN had developed a broad interests and comprehension of art and wine. Soon after his move to Shanghai, MENKEN started his own business in wine trading and distribution. In 1934, MENKEN bought this house in the original French concession as his permanent residence in Shanghai and utilized the well as his personal wine cellar till the liberalization of PRC. This house has been fortunately well preserved and now is an English friendly Spa Lounge with international hygiene standard, which provides customers a truly sensational enjoyment in health and beauty field.

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will
sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their
mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area
seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,
