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.

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

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
