The music is old fashioned, the band is too old, the drinks are too expensive, the service is slow, the place is always too packed, but still - do not leave Shanghai without having a drink and some jazz at the Jazz Club of Peace...More

I hate giving poor reviews! But, if money is tight for you, skip this. We went on a Thursday night; the minimum charge we were quoted was 300 rmb per person and I heard them tell others that they needed to pay 400 rmb minimum....More

Don't understand the fuss besides the fact that it's a beautiful hotel and setting. The band is old and well respected for playing for the last 50 years or so but considering their experience, they hardly sound it. Their repertoire is limited and the tuning...More

Worth a visit. Average age of the musicians is 82 years old and they've been playing at the Peace Hotel since 1980. Inspiring, charming, don't miss it.

The main draw of Peace Hotel for me was the jazz history there. There has been jazz music performed there since the 1930s. Excellent cocktails at the bar. As a jazz aficionado it wasn't the most amazing music I've ever seen but the best part...More

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
