You told us what you love about your city in this year’s Love Shanghai Awards – and we threw in a few picks of our own. Now we’re ripping off the wrapping and showing you the crème de la crème of Shanghai. See all the winners below.
What happens when the folks behind The Nest open a new venue? It wins bar of the year. That wasn’t the only reason, though. The Yuyuan Lu location combines the luxe lounge with an even more gastropub feel, fuelled by putting Canadian food front and centre, fantastic cocktails and great deals. Not bad, eh?
This United Valley Mall spot snuck in under the radar and firmly made its way to our hearts. Head bartender Mack Ross, with his (literally) edible menu, has cooked up tapas-style drinks pairings that offer something new while still seeming comfortingly familiar.
The team behind Heyday, and now Shake, have found a formula that works – and the city is eating it up. We're converts too and can barely get enough of this new bar with its live funk and soul show, vintage supperclub theme and impressive cocktails.
