Shanghai Happenings

From shows to international sports and trade events, Shanghai is truly a city of diverse life offering a year round calendar of interests and activities to intrigue and entertain. We endeavor to keep you informed and up to date at all times as to what is happening, where and when. Never a dull moment would not be inappropriate as this city’s motto.

Atelier by Taste Buds
Glam Bars

Drawing suits and stylistas alike, Daniel An’s sleek homage to the speakeasy is a perennial favourite for its barrel-aged tipples and stellar 'tails. Tucked inside the More than Eat complex, the dim-lit retro-riffing parlour has just enough quirk (blow-torch-lit secret menus) without being kitsch.

Bar Constellation
Relaxed Bars

In-the-know cocktail pursuers pack into this narrow, no frills Nippon bar for 500+ single malts and an extensive list of smooth tipples. Go early to nab one of the coveted booths, or try one of the more spacious sister bars Constellation III and IIII.

J. Boroski
Glam Bars

Look for the black door and you’ll find BKK/NYC-import’s entomology-inspired den for your libations. No-menu choice will leave your night up to the mixologists, ‘heavy’ at their hands for big drinkers. Kick up a notch and ask for owner's ant-derived gin, if you dare.

Grown-ups' only, sophisty Bund spot of Fellini Martinis, crystal beads, mismatched chairs, and Chef Pollitt's Med-tinged small plates.

Speak Low
Smart Casual Bars

Amid Shanghai's speakeasy saturation, the Japanese-style precision tipples from ex NY-barman Shingo Gokan are worth the faff. Multi-level cocktail haven heaving with literal social climbers – the higher you go, the more exclusive (and the more purse-tugging). Ask for the eponymous Speak Low, a bittersweet, choc-Bacardi-sherry concoction.

The Nest
Smart Casual Bars

All work and no play makes Jack a dull fellow, so skip up to lavish bar-lounger The Nest to unwind and take in floor-to-ceiling skyline views of the city with grown-up tunes, raw-counter treats and crafty cocktails. Weekends get clubby but weekdays are a decidedly sophistry affair.
