Went there on a Sunday evening which is when the live Latin music takes place. The dancing at the stage is Salsa of a very high quality. This includes expats as well as locals and is totally mesmerizing. I wish I could Dance !!!

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can

shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park
provides the area with green space and is also home to
