I love this bar in every aspects. I came to have some drinks here almost every nights during my stay at the Waldorf Astoria hotel. Friendly staff, especially the bar manager - Johnny who always greet us and give us some tips about the drinks and the city, is the key that brought us back here every single nights. I... More

You hear a lot about the long bar, and it's good. Immaculate service and truly excellent drinks make it the perfect place to while away the later part of an evening. The band are pretty good despite their hilariously egotistical between song chat. This bar will break the bank, so save it for a special occasion or come during happy... More

Definitelygo for a drink at this lovely bar. We stopped in on Valentine's Day after walking the Bund and were pleasantly surprised by the bar and jazz trio playing. Just perfect. The bar is truly LONG..and goes for miles (not really). You can have a glass of wine, a custom cocktail or enjoy a cigar (lit tableside by the waiter).

We were staying in the hotel for ten lovely days. The Long Bar was always an easy place to have a drink before or after dinner or meet up with friends. The service was impeccable and after the first visit I was never asked for my room number. The food was excellent.

A must do when you are at the bund , to have a drink ( or one of their famous cocktails ) in the famous long bar in the Waldorf . Nice atmosphere . In one end of the bar is a cigar corner , in the other end an oyster bar , and some live music in the evenings.... More

Not a lot going on here, the history of the place is quite exciting but did not find a very interesting vibe. Cocktails were just ok and very pricey

One of the nicest bars I've been to I really loved the atmosphere in this place. I thing it's quite famous as people come from all over the city. We saw this bar as we were staying in the Hotel. We visited a couple of times. Great service great atmosphere.

I was at the long bar because I am staying at the waldorf Astoria. I wanted to organise a simple and casual birthday drinks for my GQ editor. I didn't like to go there at first, but it's more convenient for our group who all stayed at the hotel. The decor is kinda traditional jazz bar which is fine. I... More

As the porters open the huge wrought iron doors to this fabulous Hotel, you're taken back in time. Entering from the Bund side, the Long Bar is just inside but miles away from the teeming crowds. My mind ran wild with the desire to relive the millions of conversations those mahogany walls have heard over the more than 10 decades... More

I never thought I would say these words: "I had the best burger of my life in China!" We enjoyed a late dinner and drinks upon arrival at the hotel followed by cocktails on another day. Service was impeccable and the food and drinks were great. Get the Wagyu burger!!!

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.
