Love the environment and the colour scheme. Beauttiful pictures on the walls. It has a long bar or small tables around the bar. The staff I guess are students and are really there for free drinks and talking to patrons. They really do not want to give service but to me thats the charm of the place. We have been... More

Located at the heart of Xintiandi. Well designed with small interior area in a narrow road only few steps from the main walking area. If you want to enjoy a cocktail in privacy and with a luxurious feeling, then this might be the place for it.

This bar can be hard to find, tucked in a side alley on the left side of the fountain pool. Quite black inside, and not that big, ok for a drink before going out or a place to meet friends. (If they find it)

The first thing that'll greet you is the overwhelming Cigar smell and only go in clothes you'll launder right after you visit. Drinks are normal priced but the atmosphere was brilliant. Good music, smoke wafting in the air, right amount of noise and non pretentious.

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
