Bocado has created an ideal atmosphere for casual, Spanish dining: The upstairs space is designed with a wall of windows overlooking lovely Yongfu Lu, set against hanging lamps, dark woods and white brick. All the dishes we tried were delicious (croquettes, deli sampler, vegetarian paella), and the red wines were very good. Staff is quite pleasant and attentive. I'm looking... More

Had a dinner with 15 ladies with a pre-set menu at a fixed price. They were very flexible on defining the menu together with us in advance, and had a great variety of delicious Spanish dishes. Also, good value for money with lots of food (maybe even too much...) for a reasonable price! Very friendly welcome by the staff and... More

Bocado is situated in one of Shanghai's most beautiful areas, the Former French Concession. Great place to go for easy-going qualitative tapas dinner for two or more. Bocado is very suitable for bigger groups and is fun to go to on Friday or Saturday, when the music's volume goes up around 9:30/10pm for dancing and singing songs mostly from the... More

Bocado is a venue we love going to. The Spanish menu and drinks are so authentic you'd think you traveled to Espana. The wait staff are bilingual and fully knowledgable about their offerings. Meanwhile, around 9pm, the place transforms into THE spot to go for DJ music and dancing and hanging out at the bar. The Expresso-Martinis are famous. The... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
