This is a good place to go that is really close to the Bund area. Musicians are normally really good. Can get busy so be prepared to stand for most of the night. Also a good night is to do dinner in the restaurant area and listen to blues and jazz music in the background.

If you're into Jazz and looking for a great night out, then the House of Jazz and Blues is where you should go. On the downside, the place too popular for it's size. It get quite crowded after 10 PM and you should probably arrive ~1 hour before the live music starts to get a good seat. Prices are are... More

House band was very good. Straight ahead jazz and blues. Nice atmosphere with pictures of many jazz legends on the walls. Menu was bar food which was decent. Food and drinks were reasonable priced

We've spent several nice evenings in this place. The music was great and the band very friendly. Barman made great cocktails, those a little expensive. But Shanghai ain't no cheap places :)

House of Blues and Jazz had a cool atmosphere and the music itself was good. 50 RMB cover to get in until midnight. Drinks very expensive, didn't try any food. Good place to relax and enjoy live music.

I could not have scripted a better musical prologue to my Christmas and New Year's Eves! I visited House of Blues and Jazz on both nights after attending concerts at the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center--a 9 piece Baroque orchestra ensemble and the Shanghai National Symphony Orchestra, respectively. Everything was just right: the general atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the warmhearted... More

Very expensive for what you get, poor quality food, a pint is about £8 Scruffy inside, more staff than customers whilst we where their. I wouldn't recommend this place.

We found a friendly scene at House of Blues & Jazz during a recent business trip, so much so that we went back several times. The owner and his wife were hospitable and friendly, and there was good (non-Chinese) food there. We went for an open mic night and a night that featured local jazz musicians. Both were fun. No...

Ok venue. About what you'd expect for a club located very centrally in a huge city - expensive drinks, crowded. The music was very good. The entertainment was a bar brawl between 2 groups though. Not smoky at all. Most full of tourists/expats,

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.
