About
An elegant, comfortable and stylish fashion bar located on the top two levels of the hotel, commanding the breathtaking views of both sides of the Huangpu River - the Bund on the Puxi side and the colourful skyline of the Lujiazui area on the Pudong side. An extensive variety of premium beverages and a comprehensive selection of refined champagnes are on the menu. Level 33 is an open-air terrace featuring daybed seating as well as an enticing whirlpool bath to soak your cares away. The cool ambience and our resident DJ turn this venue into one of the hottest nightspot in town every night.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.

Best view of Pudong Skyline
May 2021
This bar must have the best view of the Pudong Skyline, and it is spectacular to sit there at night and see the lightshow across the river. They also have a very tasty bar menu with good snacks. There is a cover charge, but as a guest at the hotel you get in free, and get the first drink at half price. A good deal!

Amazing view
Dec 2019 • Couples
Good views... one of my favorite skyline.. you don’t need to having a reservation for appetizers..if you’re lucky you have the good site, near the window.
I’ve paid about 210 yuan with my partner so 15 € per person.. and we also have included on the price a glass of wine or soft drinks..
you need to visit..

Why Vue Bar is one of the Best Rooftop Bar in Shanghai?
Dec 2019
I went back to the Vue Bar last week. If I remember right, it was Wednesday night. During the week. So what? It was packed. But not overcrowded. No fake lines. It was a clear day with clear sky. No rain, no fog. Just perfect Shanghai winter night with a magnificent Bund view from the top floor of the Hyatt on the Bund.

I was surprised to see a familiar face, Shawn, the Bar Manager in the front, greeting all incoming guests. I was happy to see him after several months. He works for Hyatt on the Bund for 4/5 years now. He took me to a corner seat. comfortable, quite and of course facing the Bund. We had a long conversation once again, mostly catching up stuffs about work and life balance.

I started with a single molt and ended my stay with another one, another brand. I also had few mini burgers with the signature fries from The View Bar. As usual, I stayed several hours, almost until the end of the night.

Excellent service and another good night experience at the View.

Breathtaking view of the huangpu river
Nov 2019
You will be able to get the breathtaking view of the huangpu river from the rooftop of this bar but the rooftop is kinda small though. There is an entry fee of 110rmb which entitled you a drink but no table so you will need to walk around the bar to look for tables.

Great views but stressed staff
Nov 2019 • Business
The view is splendid from up here with cover charge of 110 RMB. However, staff appears a little unhappy and stressed, probably because of a huge crowd. White wine tasted great!

Amazing view of Shanghai !
Sep 2019
After walking the Bund, this is a must stop for refreshment and views - both inside and out ! The view is breathtaking - of both the financial district and tower - as well as the beautifully lit up historic building along the Bund. Cover charge of Rmb 110 gets you up and in - as well as a drink. Well worth it, and view from upper level bar area is great.

Dear Skibumal, We appreciate a lot that you had a great time at Vue bar on Sep, sorry to reply you so late cause my computer as old as historic buildings along the bund. Hope we are able to see each other next time so I could give you a professional introduction of both skylines and buildings on the bund since my first job in Shanghai was an English tour guide. Hope everything going well and let me know if you visit Shanghai next time. Best Regards, Shaun Shao Vue Bar Manager

Hyatt Vue Bar - exhilarating experience with the view
Sep 2019
Great place to see the city from an eagles nest like view. Perched on top of the Hyatt The Bund hotel it gives you a panoramic view of the entire shanghai bund region.

The drinks were good and good crowd but a bit too crowded that was the only negative aspect.

Cool bar with a view
Aug 2019 • Couples
We stayed at the Hyatt on the bund and we visited the vue bar at night. It is a busy cool place, with a lot of foreigners people. The dj spin some good music and the upper floor with a jacuzzi is very fun.

Could be better
Aug 2019 • Business
We went to this restaurant because we had tried out outlets in the hotel .
View is good . Yes , we are in china but the staffs still need to polish their English and also food knowledge .
I think the servers understanding of the menu is very limited including the cooking of the steak .

Spectacular views but average service
Aug 2019 • Couples
The nighttime skyline viewed from The Vue Bar is truely incredible. If you're not staying in the Hyatt then there is a ¥110 cover charge but this includes a drink (glass of champagne, glass of wine, beer, some simple cocktails etc). The view alone is well worth the money.

The bar is spread across two floors, upstairs is an open air area with a jacuzzi in the middle and downstairs is the bar and seating area. When we arrived all the window seats were taken so we sat at the bar which still had some great views of the Bund and Putong skyline. Amazing to see the contrast between old and new.

Sadly, as the evening went on and window seats became available, a minimum spend of ¥1000 was put in place on each table. This was about 8pm. Possibly understable given the premium viewpoint but particularly frustrating as this rule was not applied to earlier visitors who occupied the tables for hours with nothing but a fruit juice, taking the same selfie over and over again.

Additionally, the service was fairly amateur. Took a while to place an order and then again to be served but was immediately presented with a bill for each drink. Took away the magic somewhat.

Despite this, still a amazing setting for an incredible view. Would definitely recommend.
