What to do in Shanghai before and after the live event
Most foreigners wonder about Shanghai nightlife. Is it safe? Will I get a Shanghai party bus? Are there places to take Shanghai party pictures? Well, here is a review of some of the best clubs in Shanghai where you can hang out before or after the Vibronics live event.
Lola is one place where you can walk in with a tie, stay late and go crazy with a European crowd. Usually, the nights start off quietly in the tapas lounge bar and gradually pick up as the evening progresses. For instance, by midnight the club is usually fired-up by reputed DJs – by this time, expect the lounge to be a packed nightclub.
It used to be known as the Monkey Lounge and got a face-lift after renovations. It’s a small bar and restaurant which transforms into a hip-hop club after 10 pm. It’s important to note that cocktails are pricey at the bar. If you want to have a fun night in Shanghai, this is the place to be: 38 Donghu Lu near Xinle Lu. It’s open daily from 9 pm until late. The club welcomes both foreigners and locals.
This club launched in Shanghai in 2011. If you are a night reveler, this is where you should be. It has a small dance floor and typically fills with a young international crowd (mostly students). It closes when the sun starts to rise.
Located close to The Shelter, this new club has gained popularity among the fans of techno house music. If electronic or house music is your thing, you will find the club’s atmosphere to be ideal. It has a futuristic interior décor theme with reasonably priced drinks. It’s open daily from 10 pm to 5 am.
Anyone looking for a club/restaurant with underground dance music should not miss visiting The Shelter, right next to The Apartment. While you are at the club, you will feel like it belongs to a part of a cult. The Shelter is also known for playing heavy bass hip hop music; hence, it’s the best place to let your hair down. The drinks are also very cheap, but it can get smoky inside.
This club is co-owned by a purveyor of Shanghai’s oldest gay bar studio and a floppy-haired DJ. 390 is an active crossover venue that is a live music venue, part lounge, and part nightclub. The crowd at 390 is usually made up of locals and foreigners. If you like an easy-going atmosphere, affordable drinks, and great music, this is the place to be.
Apart from the clubs, what else can you do at night?
Shanghai nightlife presents lots of fun-to-do-things. The city is safe to walk at night, and there are lots of people on the streets. If you are planning to stay for 2-3 more days after the concert, here are some activities for you:
The Bund Night Scene is where you get to enjoy the sights of the brightly lit street scenes as you walk along the river. Buildings present in The Bund bring in different varieties of architecture styles. Once you are at The Bund, you will get a great view of the Pudong Area including Jin Mao Building and Orient Pearl TV Tower.
Shanghai Nanjing Road: an energetic pedestrian street which always packs with people. It was the first commercial road in Shanghai and is 5.5 km long.
Cruising on Huangpu River
If you want to witness the dynamism and pulse of Shanghai from the sidelines, a Huangpu River Cruise at night is what you need. The river is very calm at night and offers a great view of both the Bund and Lujiazui. The view is gorgeous when the city lights are on.
