6/F, No.133 Yuanmingyuan Road, Shanghai 200002, China
We went on a Monday evening and eventually found the bar as it is connected with a restaurant on the 6th floor. There was one other couple in the bar but plenty of other folks in the restaurant. We missed the roulette wheel that other...More
The lack of proper signage and the tiny elevators you have to take to get to this place made it inherently special. Then, you get to the bar and are treated by one of two awesome bartenders. Andrew is more than ready to help you...More
We went at 8 on a Saturday night to take advantage of the free swing class. I was very pleasantly surprised by the fantastic cocktails and cozy environment. The prices were quite reasonable given the location. Looking forward to returning!
2nd visit a few months ago and it is still fun. Lots of young expats and boy, they party till morning ( my young friend came back at 5 am! ). Great location with lovely view. Best to drink and party then dinner....
Library Distillery hits the spot with their amazing drinks and attentive staff. A special shoutout goes out to Carter, for his incredible (almost unbelievable) enthusiasm. The lounge has a great speakeasy-esque atmosphere and the bar staff is more than willing to cater the music to...More
We were taken to the bar here by a friend who lives in the city after dinner, its a very nice little speakeasy bar with a roulette table available for a little bit of gamble-free fun.

I love the intimate speakeasy-esque feel of this place. The cocktails are amazing (shout out to the bartender, Andrew) and are definitely worth the price (equiv USD 15-20). The new bar manager (Carter) is really friendly, attentive and provides great service. The dim lighting and...More
On the 6th floor of 133 Yuanmeiyuan on the Rockbund lies a gem of a place. Nestled in Light and Salt Restaurant, turn left at the lift and walk down a short passage way, you will be greeted by Rick, a native New Yorker and...More
This is my favorite bar in Shanghai. The service is amazing and all the staff members are wonderful. The drinks are of amazing quality and the creativity of the drinks are delightful. Also, the speakeasy atmosphere blows me away every time with its rustic and...More
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.
