After a couple of days hard work in Shanghai, there was time for some good restaurants, bars and clubbing. The Thursday night we started for cocktails in Glamour bar, which is located next to the river with a great view.
Glamour Bar itself is definitely worth visiting. Stylish interior where antique furniture is combined with futuristic color schemes for the lightning. The cocktails are well worth it, especially as they serve the Martini James Bond. The special mix from Casino Royal, where James took a Martini mixed with Gin, Vodka, sweet Vermouth and a slice of lemon. Off course shaken, not stirred! From the movie script:
Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?
The Glamour Bar is definitely a place worth visiting when you are in Shanghai. From the website:
With stunning views as a backdrop and gorgeous lounging inside, the sexy Glamour Bar on the Shanghai Bund — one of the hottest bars in the world, according to Conde Nast Traveller, and voted Shanghai’s Best Bar twice in two years by the readers of City Weekend— is a glamorous setting that makes for memorable evenings, every night.
And while you are there, get diner at the restaurant at the top of the same building: M on The Bund. The restaurant has an amazing view over the river and Shanghai’s skyline. A perfect picture opportunity.
We ended in a nightclub after a short visit in Bar Rouge, which is one of the hottest night clubs in Shanghai, and also worth a visit. This night it was a little quite, maybe it was because it was a Thursday.
Shanghai is definitely a good city to go out in. The clubs and bars are trendy, play good music and there are plenty of people who are in for a party. I was lucky I had people with me who speak Chinese, as that can really help. But I bet you can get around the city only with English too.
