Six eighty year olds are probably not going to swing the house down and they didn't. But the atmosphere in one of Shanghai's most palatial and atmospheric buildings made this a memorable night.

The Old Jazz Bar in Peace Hotel is the only place you can experience the splendour of old Shanghai jazz. The average age of the musicians is 82 and they have been performing together for over 30 years. They made mistakes but it was the...More

After looking at pictures from other reviewers, it seems like the players change often. I went on May 3, 2017. There was a piano player, a bass player, a drummer, two saxes, and a trumpet. I stayed for the first two sets and had a...More

Not cool or classic jazz ... more like Chinese pop and cheesy versions of American pop songs ... not so wonderful ... pricey and loud!

Don't understand the fuss besides the fact that it's a beautiful hotel and setting. The band is old and well respected for playing for the last 50 years or so but considering their experience, they hardly sound it. Their repertoire is limited and the tuning...More

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
