Yuyintang is one of the best spots in Shanghai to get some decent live rock (and other) music. They regularly have some very nice bookings of local and foreign artists. Drink prices are average for a central Shanghai venue I would say. It is definitely worth a visit if you are into live underground rock music.

I've been to Yuyintang several times and if you're into the underground rock and roll scene, it doesnt disappoint. Coming from Boston and having been a regular to clubs like the Channel and the Rat, my bar is fairly high. Great stage, great lighting, clear sound....and table service! If you get there early, you may be able to grab a... More

Yuyintang always has live shows going on, usually local bands but often has some pretty famous bands playing as well. The venue is small and can become extremely packed when they have a big band on. Mosh pits will usually form but they tend to be pretty tame on most nights. Weekdays tend to be less lively, with seats provided... More

Da famous white house, underground rock bands tour, and cool chilling out place in Shanghai. There's a very beautiful graffiti wall inside. Close to Donghua University. Usually has 50 rmb entrance fee for the show.

I went to see Bonaparte (German band) at Yuyintang and when I arrived at the place, I wondered how could the Bonaparte band of 18 fit on this little stage and small room! They came only the 5 of them, 2 dancers and 3 musicians, but they performed an outstanding show. What they did that night in just a few... More

Went to see King creosote and other memebers of the fence Collective and was not disappointed. Venue was very throwback but it was not over-filled and there is a nice park out the back where you can take the air. Beer was cheap although the Tiger beer was to be avoided ,staff were efficient and the music was outstanding

I had read this was a great live music venue. I see that it could be, but it all depends on the band. Music sound quality is china good, beer avg 35RMB, nice size venue, with plenty of seating (no empty floor space tonight). But boring tonight... Oh well.

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
