Bar Rouge

Map shows the location of Bar Rouge

Bar Rouge opened in 2004 amid much PR fanfare and talk of "a new era in Shanghai nightlife".

The bar has indeed made its mark on the city's buzzing social scene. From its position at the top of Bund 18, the bar commands breathtaking of Pudong from its opulent outdoor terrace.

Make a reservation to guarantee yourself a table on the terrace or private indoor booth of plush red upholstery.

Below the terrace and certainly worth a sober wander lies the Bund, where the mix of past, present, and future that sets Shanghai apart from anywhere else is most clearly on show.

The Bund's buildings were once home to foreign shipping companies, international banks, newspaper offices and consulates. The Colonial architecture is something to behold - look out for the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, once said to be 'the finest building east of the Suez' and Customs House with its 'Big Ching' bell based on Big Ben.
