Good place to hang out an evening. No matter whether you are with a fried or a business associate. Good music, nice ambience. fantastic view from the roof terrace to the other side of the river with the sky scrapers of Shanghai Pudong.

If there is a place that you want to couple with a great view of Shanghai, superb music and great crowd, Bar Rouge is a place to visit. Make sure that you are on the guest list by calling ahead. Basically a lounge setting, this bar is frequented by mostly the expat community of Shanghai. Thursday is the ladies night... More

If you want a great view of the Bund and the skyline while having a drink then come here. The drinks are pricey but the view is so worth it. Make sure to get in early to avoid the cover charge, before 8pm. Don't expect spectacular service with a smile, your still in China...

Great stop for a view of the river. Outside bar lively but brisk. Service a bit slow. Inside decor red and trendy. Can reserve tables. If you go early they forget the cover. Champagne as it should be.

This plays knows its popular and has a great view and abuses that. The door staff are particularly arrogant and unfriendly and apply a dress code completely inconsistently, according to whether they know you or not. They give a very bad first impression of the bar and in my view should be fired. Once inside the views are of course... More

It is quite a nice place with obviously a beautiful view. The place has delicious drinks, the waiters are not that quick, but at least friendly. I cannot say that about the girls at the entrance, they are pretty rude. There are no seat unless you buy a table for the night that includes drinks. Once a while some pole... More

Beautiful view over the skyline of Shanghai. Super nice for the evening. Drinks are very good - not cheap but worth it. Especially with that stunning view.

This restaurant has two locations in the Jing An temple area. One is located behind Jing An temple, the other is located on the 5th level of Plaza 66. Good quality Shanghainese food, including Hairy Crab, when in season.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
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 restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
