“Piano Bar - 53 floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We went for a drink at the Piano Bar on the 53 floor.
The place has a nice atmosphere, plenty of sofa's and a great view from anywhere do to the different levels though out the bar.
Prices are what you would expect from a bar at this location.
The evening we were there, there was a trio playing live jass. Very nice.
The view is great, although not as high as the observation deck, something to be enjoyed.
Overall a nice quiet getaway, with a great view.

“Interesting place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

120 yuan for a visit. Worth of this money, but weather must be ok and you should be lucky to be there during good visibility, which is rear occasion due to smog.

“Don't go at night - terrible picture outcome”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is a second review of one of the observation decks. This time again was a disappointment going at night to the Jin Mao Tower. Similar to the Finance Center Tower this also suffered from extremely poor opportunities to take photos at night. There is so much background light in the observation deck at night that very few photos I took even came close to being crisp and clear.

I am sure that during the day you can take better photos.

“Very overcrowded”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

After standing in line for 2,5 hours you get an a dirty platform with dirty windows. When you think the line you were standing is over, there is always a new line to stand. Horrific experience, management is not in controll of situation

“Nice view, shame about the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

You get absolutely amazing views of the financial district and Shanghai. the lift takes you to 340m in no time at all. In the evening it is rammed with people. The cost 120 Yuan makes this a great money spinner. That is about £14 per person. Is it worth it not really. If you do go, then check visibility. If it is polluted with haze then you might as well throw your money in the river.
