Really good view of the Bund at night from Bar Rouge. Also really recommend going on a Friday or weekend to experience a club night - great DJ then too. Drinks are quite expensive (100RMB average) but understandable as its a rooftop bar/club

If your looking for a spot to have a drink and take in the view of the Bund, then Bar Rouge is it! Really nice swanky venue with glass windows across the front of the establishment and an outdoor balcony area out towards the river and world famous Bund. This is a nice place, and drinks are pricey. Be prepared... More

Facing Shanghai skyline, this is the spot where international visitors gather to have a drink. They could use the beautiful terrace during winter time with some heaters.

The view from Bar Rouge is spectacular, iconic, and that's why you visit Bar Rouge. You should only go at night as Chinese cities put on such a magnificent light show. I would argue it is the best night view on the Bund. Be aware the spectacular light show slows down after 10:30pm and ends at 11pm. Another advantage of... More

Tried to find a balance between bar and club and in their efforts fell short of both. Even had a table with security. They had dancers tho

Went here after a dinner to celebrate my birthday during a two weeks stay in Shanghai. Great view from the outdoor bar over the Bund and the drinks were good as well.

Fantastic view, but you need to arrive before 22h00 to see the entire city lit up. Cover isn't an issue if you make friends with a promoter (there are loads of them, and I can refer you to my friend if you wish) while you're there, and drinks are average Bund prices. If you're a foreigner in Shanghai, this is... More

Brilliant in many ways. French food with too many options so very difficult to make a choice. Service is very friendly and staff tries to help you select best food options, proactively suggesting options that ended up to be top choice. The restaurant is located on the 6th floor and has an outdoor terrace offering one of the best views... More

Visited Saturday late evening. Entrance fee could not be settled by card and only cash accepted. That seemed to irritate the cashier. Inside there were plenty of people. Outside area was also rather crowded and when it started to rain, all the people naturally squeezed in. Then it really was crowded and very unpleasant at least for me. I wonder... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
