I've been coming here 2 times a year for about 6 years. The food is getting better so is the wine list. The atmosphere depends upon who you are with and what band is playing. This is a great place to hang out listen to music joke around drink and smoke. The dining room is quite comfy. Service is patchy.... More

Imagine to be back in old times, a Jazz Band playing, you grab a nice beer, maybe a Guinness, listen to the music, talk with your friends, maybe even have a dinner there. Outside the busy Shanghai of the 21st century, but here almost like in the 1930ies. Drinks are really good, the music mostly really nice, and service is... More

Nightlife in Shanghai is plentiful but if you like live bands I suggest this place. It was recommended by the performer at Cigar Jazz Wine Bar in Xintandi which I also recommend for entertainment. Both artists were from the states and true musicians. The drinks are higher priced since there's no cover charge. The Ahi Tuna appetizer was outstanding.

Only went in late to listen to the music and have a few drinks, we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Musicians sitting around, then getting up to jam with the band, one in particular a saxophonist was absolutely brilliant. Also sitting at the bar was a guy who was the double of James Brown ( turned out later he sounded like... More

I love going to this place when visiting Shanghai. The food is great, caters to my western taste buds and is a fun spot to relax. Good music and a nice gathering of travelers (many for business)'from around the world. Menu is a bit high end and pricey.

for the people who likes to have some true jazz music in the city Shanghai, it is a heaven. back to the last century, this bar already existed on another location. it was small, packed, maybe more fun, original. Now it is in an old house with 2 floors. The house itself is nice to see. So do take a... More

I am torn between 3 and 4 stars, but 4 stars would mean attributing credit for the company and the mood to the place. It is a nice bar with a good stage, good music setup, room for dancing and partying. We only visited once, so this is a single impression and the band playing was from the US and... More

There is cover fee to get in if you show up later. Drink prices are more on the high end. There are three rooms you can sit in, the main room with the stage, (The loudest of them all) the room beside the stage with the bar, and a back room, with no view of anything. (But the quietest). For... More
