“Needs time to develop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Its not a must. Interesting development of warehouses not clea rif it is just a night venue or an all day place too eat. Too early to say. Has some interesting commercial activity, plenty od eateries but Shanghai is so spoiled for eateries I would not venture the Cool Docks just to eat (not yet). Good location next to the river. I did not checkout the sand pit beech but give it time and the yacht club is well someones pride and joy.

“Something nice to come”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Still mainly under construction. Most interesting place which would offer a place with view on Huangpu river are not ready yet.. Once they are it will be a hit!

“What a shame”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a lovely courtyard with various businesses from bars, cafes and restaurants to shops. We went on our first night but the place was dead, which speaks volumes about the quality of bars and restaurants. We visited one bar the food was ok and medium priced but service was poor and the kept the fron door open the full time we were there even although it was very cold. The staff were all wearing coats!

“Neat area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The cool docks was a very nice area with lots of restaurants and some nice scenery. The area however is slightly more expensive.

“European courtyard with Asian restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Still quite new, seems many locals not aware how plasant this area is. Good choice of mostly Asian cuisine & modern art gallery. Close to Indigo Hotel & ferries.
