235 Anguo Lu
One of Shanghai’s most remarkable soirees, this Hongkou dancehall hosts groups of middle aged men dancing cheek-to-cheek every weekend along with occasional drag performances.

Visitors need to be sensitive to the anonymity enjoyed by the men here and it’s best if you get involved rather than making the dancers feel as if they’re being observed for someone else’s entertainment, but a trip here is a truly unforgettable Shanghai experience.
