    Enjoyed the jazz music, some that to look foward in shanghai. Choices of drinks and price are reasonable. Atmosphere was super to end the night. Located at the center of the city.

    Nice place to chill, good pizza, appetizers, and drinks.
    When crowded, service could be a bit slow, but staff is nice and polite.

    Wide variety of eateries. Numerous choices for cocktails & beer as well. The area was clean, well kept up. People were friendly. Menus in English as well as Chinese. One could "bar hop" or sample a large variety of tasty treats down the "street". Outdoor seating as well as indoor seating available at all the locations we saw. Our visit was late afternoon to early evening on a Saturday and pedestrian traffic was just picking up as we were leaving around 20:00. Not all locations have happy hour, which we were surprised by that fact. Casual and comfortable area. Recommendation for families go earlier in the evening rather than later. One could spend an hour or all night in this area, just depends on what you are looking for. Prices, typical for Shanghai. Worth a visit or two.

    The Patio Lounge is in the atrium area on the 56th floor of the Grand Hyatt - sitting there you can look up the 33 floors of the atrium.
    Note - some of the other reviews here are for different restaurants/bars in the hotel. There is no view of the Bund from the Patio.

    There serve an afternoon tea as well as wine and spirits. They also have a jazz trio play on the weekends, which creates a nice environment in which to relax, have a drink, or a snack.

    The food is basically snacks and small dishes. The service is good, though when busy they can be a little slow.

    I saw the Cotton Club reunion here. The venue is nice with table seating and table service. Great venue. I would return for a show to The Pearl.

    Nice place to visit for drinks and a snack. The view is good, but not great, as you are set back within the building. Good place to visit for a cocktail or 3 though.

    This bar has an exceptionally unique and intimate atmosphere in an old heritage building in the middle of Tianzifang. The owner, Gavin, is a super kind and hospitable man who is always up for a chat and runs it with his family. They generally have super tasteful music for ambience most of the time as well. They have pretty solid drink deals with 30 rmb classic mixers and Draft beers, so it's pretty good for a session. Food is also top quality - even though it's a tad on the pricey side, it is worth it. Highly recommend for dates, solo study, and group sessions.

    Small, quiet, simple, friendly. Not too much else to say. They sometimes have live music but not the night I was there. Food is simple pub food but the burger was one of the best Ive had in China.
