Did you know that Shanghai was once called the Vegas of Asia? Revisit that decadent era (minus the opium) at Shanghai Nights, a weekly party at the Mandarin Bar. Experience the glamour of the 1930s as the spectacular 23rd-floor bar transforms into an Asian-style speakeasy, complete with Shanghai-inspired everything: Oriental lanterns, dramatic red lighting, live jazz, small bites and luscious cocktails evocative of the era. Try the gin-based Barrel Down the Bund or the French Concession, a swoon-worthy combination of European and Asian flavors and a delicious reflection of the post-war blending of two cultures.
