The setting is perfect. It's a classic bar, with classic drinks and eats, but the price de resistance is the band. These boys are all over 80 and play a wide variety of American and Chinese standards. Outstanding

to be fair i can take or leave jazz but one of my travelling companions is jazz obsessive - I partially picked the hotel because of the bar and its history, we went with high hopes and for me it was ok - nothing amazing...More

The Strand in Yangon, The Raffles in Singapore, and now The Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai. These are classic grand dame hotels and The Jazz Bar at the Peace Hotel is a classic!

This transported us back to the middle 1950's - it was so wonderful to see a place like the Fairmont Hotel with it's Art Deco rooms and the famous Jazz Bar - your mind wanders off when visiting the place. Gret to visit

Don't miss at least a peek into this historic bar, and stay for at least a few renditions from the jazz band....They won't be there forever!

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

The Jazz Bar at Fairmont Peace Hotel is the only address in China for legendary jazz, carrying guests instantly back to the private clubs of the 20’s and 30’s with its comfortable and authentic décor. The menu is tailored for easy eating snacks, featuring European and local dishes, and a timeless cocktail list inspired by what was on offer in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The current Old Jazz Band is made up of six veteran musicians whose average age is 77. They have drawn an audience for decades of locals, international travelers, celebrities and heads of state such as former US Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. The preferred table, food, drinks and cigars of each guest is memorized to create the feeling of a private club for returning guests.
