This restaurant and bar has been a well known place for years now and it still proves its today's style and value. Starting with the entrance, which is fun to find out how to open the door. But even more fun to go to the restrooms, which could be a challenge if you are desperate.... All in all it's a... More

Unique venue/setting. The food is not the best but well worth a visit. I love the whole concept though. it's fun. Cool drinks.

A really cool bar that's hard to find. We bumped into it almost by accident. The bar can provide you with great drinks and nice athmosphere, but the light coded secret entrance makes this place even more memorable. Call the bar to get todays code!

It's an awesome concept restaurant. First we needed to enter a passcode to enter the restaurant (which entails putting your hand into holes shaped like a telephone pad to press the position of the number password of The day). The restaurant serves chinese fusion food, which is pretty different. We ordered 2 daily menus which include 2 dishes each: -Menu1:... More

The entrance code is a quirk of this restaurant - as is finding it! Only people who know its there are going as its not a roadside frontage or drop in. It's quite dark inside but a good atmosphere. The bar is interesting but we weren't keen on the cocktails. Don't go there for wine - beers and for some,... More

Really cool place. The whole place is designed as a riddle and how to get in is the first obstacle. They serve great drinks in a dark, quiet atmosphere, so it's great if you go with someone you want to chat with and don't want to be disturbed by the music or other guests.

From outside you don't even know that there is s restaurant...no name, concrete stairs with 9 illuminated holes. You need to book and get a code which you will need to 'enter' by yourself to open the door. Once you are inside, you find a 3 story restaurant with a large bar on the second floor. If you get a...

Good luck getting in. Literally. If you can figure out the door, then you're more than halfway there. Dress well, but it's relaxed. Great interior venue, and the drinks are spot on. Worth hitting around 10pm on weekends.

Difficult to find, entrance has only a small light on the floor with People 7 written on it and you can enter by using a code after you have reserved. It-s in a former plant of something, post/industrial design and cosy tables. Food is really good, service is perfect and you also have a nice bar on the groundfloor, where... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
