Brilliant place for an early evening beer. They brew their own. Shanghai can be little bit like landing on a different planet, bar 505 beer helps make it more palatable. Bar staff are super nice, cool beats, cool vibe, two thumbs up.

Best hotel bar in terms of service, ambience & quality of drinks. They have home made beer, that will quench your whole day thirst. Staff are polite and have great French greetings!

This bar is lovely, the staff are excellent and the coffee and drinks are really good. They had a chocolate special while were were there and the hot chocolate was the best I have ever tasted, as was the macaroon. However.... Smoking is allowed in the bar and on both occassions we cut short our visit due to the air being thick with smoke. For non smokers this completely spoilt the visit.
