Hearthy food and great music

Dinner before the live music: The dining room, which is separated from the bar where the stage is located, is classically decorated with a bit of vintage allure. We had only one dish plus sides which proved to be a good idea as the portions are opulent. I had a slow cooked beef rib which was... read more

Always a great time. The performers do a great job engaging the audience and are very friendly when done with their sets. This place is a welcome respite from the typical bars/clubs in the Bund area. Drink prices are a little steep, but given the location it's unavoidable. Cocktails are pretty well made at least and there's a solid selection.... More

American food, nice vocie of a blues singer, atmosphere from the 30s, good beer. Everything that makes you feel not in Shanghai, although a few steps from the Bund and its view on Pudong. Expensive.

Went out with some friends for a nice dinner and live jazz music. Had a ball !!!! Food was good - recommend the steak. Best part is the music and a great bar. Hadn't been there in a while and will not make that mistake again. It was just a fun evening - pure and simple. If you love live... More

Haven't tried their food, but House of Blues & Jazz is my favorite night spot in Shanghai to go for a drink (or two) and enjoy great live music with a diverse, energetic crowd.

If you are a fan of great live music. You should definitely visit the House of Blues and Jazz. It's one of my top spots whenever I'm in town. The bands that play there are always top notch. there are always professional musicians from the States, Europe and China, completely blowing the house down. The atmosphere is also cool and... More

If you like music and you visit Shanghai for the first time this is a must. If you go here when it's jam session, you might be in for a surprise. Once when I was her, the singer asked for a drummer and the very tiniest Chinese woman showed up. And what a drummer she was. Amazing. A wonderful place... More

I have visited this place a couple of times on Fridays earlier during my previous trips to Shanghai and really enjoyed the music and ambience. However, I was disappointed their attitude yesterday. I visited the place on a Thursday evening. The place was relatively empty and they offered me and my friend a table next to the stage. However, after... More

Nice, cozy western music place in the heart of Shanghai with real good and sometimes entertaining musicians. Have never eaten here, but comes for an hour of music and a beer, of which they have Murphy's . But at 98 RMB it is absolutely paid for. It is not always easy to get the receipt from the waiter. Contradicting to... More

We went on a Thursday night and had such a great time returned on Friday night. Food is good quality with lots of choices. A variety of worldwide drinks are available and they were well mixed. Best part though was entertainment and people watching. Carlton J. Smith is absolutely an awesome entertainer and the Soul Brothers were fantastic. There was... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
