Enjoyed the jazz music, some that to look foward in shanghai. Choices of drinks and price are reasonable. Atmosphere was super to end the night. Located at the center of the city.

Going to see jazz at the renovated Peace Hotel is something tourists do to experience "Old Shanghai." The well-stocked bar/room is old/new looking. The band plays a few old jazz standards, but it's not a place for jazz lovers (Hello Dolly? The Way We Were?). It's also expensive. The minimum charge is 300RMB ($43) per person weekdays, 400RMB on weekends. Plus a 15% percent service charge. The snacks and drinks ($15 per) will quickly exhaust the minimum (large fruit plate: $55!). The drinks, however, are strong. We had fun. The old gentlemen toot away from 6:30 PM; they are replaced by other old gentlemen at 9:00, plus a Chinese female singer who sings 20s and 30s Chinese songs (our Chinese friends told us). The acoustics of the room are loud, so I suggest sitting on the side, in a corner, if you want to converse as well as listen. I have a big complaint. The 15% surcharge "for service" is upfront, but the final bill also contains a line for "gratuity." Where I come from, a service charge is paid to servers. So I enquired of a waiter, and then a manager. No, I was told, the service charge goes to the Fairmont Peace Hotel. As I complained to the manager, the waiter's knowing smile suggested that he might agree with me. So, now, who gets the "gratuity"? Inquiring customers want to know. They also would like to know why the hotel's profit margin is not included in the already exorbitant prices, and not instead given to the waitstaff and band, who do a fine job.

This is in the Fairmont Peace Hotel and a must if you are staying there. It is a smallish bar where a table is at a premium. If you are a guest of the hotel can skip any queue to get in. The main attraction is the Jazz band which has been resident for many years and has an average age well into the pensioner years. The walls show photos of famous guests who are visited the bar. Drinks are a bit pricey but that is to be expected; service is at the bar or table service. Recommended

Underwhelming and not living up to expectations. The band seemed to be going through the motions and uninterested in entertaining the audience. If they weren't listlessly playing, they were either on their phones or napping. Venue is very well done, however and the bar and cocktails were quite good.

Came to the club twice - what a great experience! The gentlemen performing have been here non-stop for 20 years, and hold the Guiness Record for the oldest performing group (average age of 75 years old). They start at 7 pm every night, and a lady singer joins them around 9 pm (I have actually preferred the performance without her singing...). Very kind staff and a good selection of alcohols (especially wine). Look around - you will find pictures of famous visitors (e.g. Barack Obama). Do not miss.
