The Nest gastrolounge -our dishes are to be shared, the cocktails are sipped Muse has collaborated with Bacardi to develop The Nest, featuring Grey Goose -the French luxury vodka. The Nest is a gastrolounge -a cocktail lounge with a full kitchen, offering hand-crafted drinks and dishes in a 'sharing' style. The atmosphere is contemporary and stylish, but relaxed, where you will feel like you're in your own cool living room, with a variety of seating styles -mostly cozy sofa and arm-chair, but also bar-type seating and regular dining tables. The ambience builds through the evening, and then 'chills' later, but always allows for conversation and discovery. Our lounges are built around a showcase

I wouldn't know where to start. DON'T MISS THIS PLACE! Ok, having said that, it's one of my favorites. The ambient is classy, yet trendy and modern. The guests are posh and the music is perfect. Take your time to appreciate the interior design. Sit...More

This one undoubtedly one of the best places to go in Shanghai when (like us) we had enough of some excellent Chinese food! The service, ambience and quality of the food was outstanding. Highly recommended, especially the Viking sized ribs. We were lucky enough to...More

From the welcome complimentary cocktail to really creative and yummy desserts, The Nest made for an excellent evening out with friends. The presentation of dishes was impressive; however, the scallops were a bit bland and lacked a side dish. Overall, though, we would go back...More
