Shanghai Nightlife Tour

An Insider's guide

Asia's new 'it' city is alluring, always decadent, stylish and full of adventure. Our guides will take you through Old Shanghai, to local favourites, fashionista bars and swanky hotel cocktail haunts with views, and drinks,  you won't believe!  #6

Tour Overview.

Shanghai’s liveliness goes well beyond any daytime activities. Your visit to this incredible metropolis without a cocktail whilst overlooking its sleek skyline isn't a complete visit! The atmosphere come night time in this legendarily decadent town is electric, you know you're in a place where style is made and the world looks to as a harbinger of what's new and happening.

Meet your guide in the hotel lobby and we'll set out to explore the old, the new, the local - and glamouress Shanghai. First off we'll traipse through the Tianzifang. Tianzifang used to be an unassuming laneway in a factory area but has now transformed into the art district of Shanghai. With more boutique galleries, private studios, and designer labels than you could poke a stick at it also hosts some pretty charming bars and cafes with excellent light cuisine and top order cocktail makers or micro brewery beers on tap.


Then we'll continue to explore Shanghai’s preeminent lifestyle hub, the Xintiandi. Xintiandi seamlessly ties together Shanghai’s past and future with the swankiest of chic restaurants and open-air bars within restored “Shikumen” residences, a traditional form of architecture specific to Shanghai. A fantastic venue for shopping, dining and drinking with cosmopolitan locals. We'll take in some regular favourites of real Shanghaiese and make sure you get to enjoy this town as an 'Insider'.


Afterward we'll make a must do dash to the top of the skyline with 5 star luxury bars and views that are breath taking ... after which the night is still young! You're in expert hands.
