The Shanghai nightlife explodes, when the club and bar scene ignites. Shanghai has hundreds of bars and lounges as well as dozens of well-known dance clubs featuring guest DJs. The most popular after-hours districts are on either side of the Huangpu River, with the biggest crowds buzzing around the Bund and Pudong's mega-hotels .
Visitors traveling to Shanghai also have the chance to enjoy the local culture and Chinese arts though this kind of activity isn't as prevalent as in other Chinese capitals with deep historic roots. Chinese opera, theater and classical music (both Chinese and Western) are performed at select venues throughout town.
Visit Shanghai’s Bars and lounges
The major hotels on either side of the Huangpu River have lounges perched high in their upper levels. These places are hip and swanky, with premium prices to match the view. There are dozens more hip bars and lounges on the Bund or on lesser known avenues like Henghshan and Tongren.
Party on and The Shanghai Dance clubs
As one of the best places to party in China, Shanghai hosts many outstanding dance clubs and discos. In the past, the best venues employed foreign DJs to generate excitement, but local talent has been on the rise in the past few years.
