Go early to get a good seat. I think they open at 4. Very pricey, but the ambiance is excellent, as are the drinks. Worth if just to check it off your list of "must sees."

Arranged to meet some business colleagues at 6.30pm last Wednesday. As I opened the door to enter the bar a staff member blocked my entry and shut the door and told me I could not go in as all the seats were occupied! I looked in as I was about to enter and there was plenty of standing room -... More

We were here to have a drink and chill. Very nice place with great bar foods. We ordered a chicken quesadilla and sliced ham to share. Very nice. Service also very good 😊

This is a high-end bar in a luxury hotel, so it is expensive (surprised?). But you get what you pay for: the classic cocktails are wonderful, the historic interior is beautiful, and the atmosphere on a Friday night is lively thanks to the jazz band. Great people-watching too.

Firstly, we search our "Lonely Planet Pocket guide" for bars in Shanghai. We found "The Long Bar". What it didn't say was it was within the Waldorf Astoria - we found that out after we arrived at the front of the building. It was dark and gloomy inside and we had to use our phones to see the menu. I'm... More

The long bar dates back to the British presence in Shanghai. It is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of a previous age.

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.

Thank quodian

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.
