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

Very nice and clean, table service excellent. Place was very busy but staff coped well and table kept clear of empty glasses. Band started 9.30, we... More

I just returned from my 10th trip to Shanghai and House of Blues and Jazz is a must each and every visit. I've never eaten there (well, except for appetizers which were fine). This place for me is really about the music and I've never been disappointed. I highly recommend!

This is mostly a club and secondarily a restaurant. It depends who is playing that evening. You're not going to notice the food but if there's a good act onstage, everything is wonderful!
