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

I had already had dinner before so I just went for a dessert. Menu was interesting and ample. Good drink selection and very good live music

There is an abundance of bars, lounges and clubs in Shanghai, especially along Zhongshan road. We were in a party mood and wanted something different, thought to ourselves "Hey! Why not check out this place which looked like a hidden gem tucked way in a corner" (since it had decent reviews). We were quickly disappointed. The only salvation and reason... More

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
