Shanghai Nightlife in China

Shanghai Nightlife in China

on May. 17, 2016 by

Shanghai has some of the best bars & top nightclubs in East-Asia. I recorded lots of footage throughout the weekend at many venues to bring you the best spots.

Tips & Advice
  • Note: Be careful, I came across many nightclub lists on Google of which many were outdated and ended up at closed doors. That is why I created a new list!

Before you go out make sure to install the ExpressVPN app, otherwise you'll not be able to use Google Maps, which is a necessarity if you get lost or cannot find the venue.I got lost many times looking for particular clubs. China bans Google, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter & Instagram. So for communication with the locals install WeChat, which is the WhatsApp of China.

Start off your night at Sir Elly's on top of the Peninsula Hotel, this bar has the most mesmerizing view of Shanghai (Pudong business district), than head over a few blocks down the Bund for Bar Rouge. Bar Rouge is the most popular bar in Shanghai where you can meet expats and many English speaking locals, make sure to go on Thursday for Ladies Night!

A little further down you'll find club M1NT, this amazing club on the 24th floor of an office building, has a massive shark aquarium in their hallway and often themed events. Entrance is free that's why drinks start at $20, so make sure to pre-drink or come with a thick stack of bills.

A 10 minute cab ride from the Bund you'll are Fusion Nightclub in the French Concession, here you'll find a young often foreign crowd jamming to house & EDM. This place wasn't my cup-of-tea. Than there is Linx Nightclub near People's Park, a super upscale club with many expensive cars parked up-front. The club was rammed with models and douchebags, although music was good, again Linx had free entrance as well with drinks starting at $20.

Two other places worth mentioning is NEST, a lounge bar for great dining and predrinking with friends before you start your night and club MUSE across the street from NEST, MUSE actually really surprised me, this place had incredible DJ's, so make sure to check it out when you are in the area.
