Great but smoky place for late night music

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... read 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

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

Although the drinks were a bit pricy, the beer was cold and the Mojitos were spot on. Live entertainment was off the hook. Get there early if you want a table, otherwise you will have to elbow in at the bar or find room to move on the dance floor. A 50rmb cover charge was well worth the price of... More

We were there on our last night in Shanghai and we were a mixed group from different corners of the world and different age groups as well. The Bar was nice, yes it is a little pricey but don't we pay a little more in the best bars in the city we are from. The highlight was definitely the Band.... More

this place is not only hyper expensive (almost 90 RMB for a beer), but the service is abysmal. The bartender tried to force us to order more and refused to serve us what we order.... we ended up by leaving the place pissed and spent the evening somewhere else! Basically I asked for one beer for two persons (to check... More

This bar (they have a restaurant I believe as well) is a great expat and man-on-business-trips hangout. Live jazzy music, and good wine. Great place to after a dinner around the Bund, but don't expect to meet a lot of local people

What a great way to spend the night. We had dinner and listened to some great blues. Wish we had found this venue 3 years ago when we started visiting Shanghai. Will definitely be going back and bring our friends along.

I had dinner and of course spent the rest of my evening there because when the band starts to play you don't get out, trust me. Very good music, component singer and add magical atmosphere, if you don't mind bedding immersed in care smoke (and I don't smoke). But it all add to the ambience off the place, decadent and...

Heavy, blood-maroon curtains drape the walls and, from ceiling to eye level, smoke weighs, suspended, like a threatening thunder cloud. It feels like another time. The band take up one corner, but their rhythms groove through every cheer, wolf-whistle, broad smile, tapping foot and clapping hand of the packed, small room. Some dance, most don’t, some close their eyes and... 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.
