Great bars & food with plenty of choice to choose from. Easy to reach near to Hongqiao airport and great old colonial building which are converted into restaurants and pubs. It is very popular with locals and expa. Especially great for Friday night and weekends.

Great street, plenty of bars and variety of food including indian, german, thai and english. Absolutely packed every time I go here - love it! More of an evening area, nothing really opens until midday onwards

Watching F1 and if you like sport, this is the place to go. Many Sundays spend here with chicken wing Sunday. A hit in the summer with the big outside area. Though it's a sports bar, the food is still pretty good. Blue cheese burger...More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
