The area
Neighborhood: Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.

Only go there if you have loads of money or you are a VIP

Apparently, this place has been the place to seen or to be seen in Shanghai. Staff will not be nice to you unless you are one of the VIPs. Which is ridiculous! Go somewhere with better service unless you have tonnes of money and want to occasionally run into celebrities.

Fun club with a good mix of crowd
Feb 2019 • Business
We were there on a Friday night. The place started to get going after midnight. Music progressed nicely across genres. From ol school hip hop to the latest dance music. Range of crowd from expats to locals early twenties to late 30s. Good night out!

The place u dont want to be when in Shanghai.
Jan 2019 • Friends
Truly speaking i put bad reviews only when its REALLY BAD... So here we go Le Baron is the worst night life experience in Shanghai. We booked a table on Friday night throw a one of their managers. When we got there the bouncer pretend that they dont have this booking, and totally ignored us, i would leave right away but my friends wanted to check the spot cause they thought its really busy and cool if the bouncer dont want to let people in. Somehow after 20 mins they let us in and brought to our table. Well place was not that full to block people downstairs, drunk kids vomiting everywhere , rude staff and terrible music. We left right away. Not a place to be when u have clubs like Bar Rouge, M1nt and ASL.

Pretentious Bouncer
Oct 2018 • Friends
We were a group of 6 friends.
We waited 30 minutes outside.
One of the bouncer, black, was pretentious.
As we walked away he tried to pick a fight with one of my friend.
Go to Le Baron if you are looking to be treated disrespectfully.
There are much better places in Shanghai to spend a great night.

Exactly what the pretentious name suggests...

This place is stuffy and shallow. We reserved a table and dropped about 2k USD expecting to have a good time sending off a friend but nope, apparently that wasn’t enough money because after about half hour the staff started being really nasty to us to the point I felt like leaving. They pushed us so far to the corner of our table we didn’t have any space left to sit. The club got really crowded super quickly too. Not a great experience. Unless getting terrible service and being pushed around the dance floor is your vibe, I don’t recommend it.

Don’t be taken in by the people trying to get in as you should be trying to get out . Ask yourself why do they employ so many bouncers it is not for your own safety it is to make sure they extract any money you may owe them .
Whatever , you do , do not open one of the numerous bottles of possible champagne on the tables as they come with a charge of £170 and you won’t know that until it’s opened.
If you are sitting at a table then you will be moved on unless you have succumbed to opening a bottle.
It’s a seedy place with little nooks and crannies and absolutely no atmosphere with a poor selection of music.
Shanghai must be short of night clubs is this is one of the more popular venues .

Rude, arrogant staff
Aug 2018 • Friends
Don’t waste your time. We had a reservation and were totally ignored by the incredibly rude and arrogant ‘bouncer’ at the door once we arrived who claimed we were not on the list. Spend your money somewhere where you’ll be welcomed, this place is trying to be ridiculously pretentious with no merit.

Probably the worst place in Shanghai
Aug 2018 • Friends
This is undoubtedly the worst nightspot I've visited in Shanghai, and possibly even the world. Rude staff, overpriced drinks, iTunes playlist quality of music, and very crowded (somehow!). Do yourself a favour and drink elsewhere on Donghu Lu which is actually a very good street to party outside of this atrocity.

Classy with all the illuminati red eyes haha, the decor is cool. it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the music. Plenty of celebrities also, CBA players frequent the joint. Drinks are not that expensive and worth the money, you can get beers...so cool.
