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.

Great 90's show
Mar 2019
We attended a 90’s mini-concert in the old 1931 The Pearl cabaret headlined by the band Red Stars and it was a smash.More so, this is a historic building that used to house luxurious cabaret shows during the colonial times.

Interactive shows/ Great atmosphere
Apr 2019 • Friends
Enjoyed a show in the pearl for the first time and now want to go again.

There was something magical with the show, not Disney magical but was nice to see even though the club is old the show will bring it alive.

Watch out Bon app, smartshanghai or other channels for cheaper tickets

The Pearl is an Entertainment Powerhouse in Shanghai!
Nov 2018 • Friends
I was in the Pearl last night. It was a great crowd with free flow champagne, canapés and nonstop entertainment. It was an awesome party to celebrate Pearl's 5th Birthday Anniversary.

The Pearl is an Entertainment powerhouse in Shanghai. It's a Canadian House owned by two Canadians and other investors and shareholders. They host all kind of entertainment events all year long. It's not a huge venue. But very unique with a capacity of 500 guests (more or less, depends on the event).

It's located very close to Metro Line 10, Sichuan North Rd station (2/3 minutes walk from exit 2).

The Pearl: What a Beautifull Place!
Nov 2017 • Business
Wow! What a place! It's amazing! That was my first expression, when I went to The Pearl first time for a special events (Italian Brand: Asti) months ago. After that, I went to The Pearl many many times. Most recently, a week ago for The French Christmas Market. The Pearl is well known in Shanghai for exotic shows and special events. It's a beautiful place. I love the interior color and lighting inside. Good food, drinks and excellent service. The Pearl has hundreds of repeat visitors like myself. I go to The Pearl at least once or twice a month. Mainly because I like everything about this place. The shows are not my favorite but I like this place more for special events and private corporate events. It's a great place, full of great energy. My most favorite is Movie Night on Tuesday. They always have a great selection. Never a dull moment at The Pearl.

Great night out!
Oct 2017 • Couples
2nd time at pearl. Great music, great drinks at a great price. Met the manager Jeremy. What a great guy. He has a good handle on the operation and came to check on us a few times. Sincere, Friendly and genuine. Bartenders and wait staff were prompt and professional. Drinks were a bargain for Shanghai in comparison to other live music venues. The music wasn't deafening like other places can be in this city. Good AV experience. The woofers may be on the way out, but this was a nitpick and hardly noticeable once the show got going. Decor and set up is really cool. Tad rustic but can accommodate severe types of events. Decent pub grub as well. When you go to Pearl, make sure to be quiet in the way in and out as it is in a bit of a residential area. All in all, what a great night! I plan to make The Pearl part of my regular rotation. Foreign CC are accepted.

We went there for the first time with friends. This was a great surprise, excellent band, great atmosphere. We all danced even after the show with great DJ. The food was simple but good for a cabaret. Nice evening place in Shanghai
