The Roosevelt Sky Bar was very lively with lots of people & great music. It was a bit hard to have a conversation as the music was a tad bit loud but you just soak up the atmosphere & enjoy the view of the Bund, which is very beautiful at night when all the lights are on. The drinks are... More

Go straight to the top of the roof and sit outside after dinner and have a few drinks and enjoy the lights of Pudong area of Shanghai. Pearl Tower in all its glory.

Incredible views of the skyline from the top floor. Nice rocking music (rather old) but still fun and a nice mix. Too loud for conversation. But lower floors have more quiet areas if desired.

We made reservations to have a table with a view of the river and the financial district. Our reservation was delayed over half an hour but the view and the food made up for it. The food and service were very good.

From wine cellar to champagnes, from Chinese to American food, with 9 stunning floors and over 62 chefs, House of Roosevelt offers the best in class and taste. Above all, over the last few visits the staff makes you feel at home and takes exceptional care of guests.

One of the most famous restaurants in Shanghai. Well known for its rooftop bar with stunning views. The restaurant is great but the food not so. Foie gras in a plastic cup? Surf and turf was not very impressive.

Stunning views especially if the weather cooperates... but there are other places on the Bund with stunning views and much better value. USD$50 for 3 beers is a bit over-the-top and unnecessary; food is hit-and-miss most times and, at the prices they charge, no excuse for that.

Dear James M, Thanks a lot for dropping in our House of Roosevelt. We feel sorry for your uncomfotable experience. However, the price you mentioned USD$50 for 3 beers is inaccurate. Through careful checking our winelist, our beer prices range from USD7.6-12.3/bottle. The price in such kind of premier location is very competitive. Shall there is any further question, please...

Went there with a few business colleagues for a business dinner. Was very impressed with the food choices and service level of the staffs. A bit pricy but a good place to impress your business partner or wife/girl friend!! Excellent view of the Shanghai city from the terrace too.

Had dinner with our colleagues (100 plus). Awesome terrace view of Shanghai city and river. Being a Sunday had the opportunity to see huge chinese crowd moving on the banks of the river. Food is the best one I had in China

After a long day of visit, get to their roof top (can be windy) and enjoy the view ! The service has always been super bad, but I have to say it is getting better since a year.

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.
