Classy venue with good choices of food and a couple of microbreweries on top of everything else. The buildings and the grounds are beautiful. Well worth a visit.

Strolling along the street, listening to classic Chinese orchestras, looking at vendors' traditional handmade wares, restaurants for afternoon tea - this place has everything! Love the vibes at this Chinese place! Highly recommended for people who want to experience the oriental feel first hand.

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
