Having opened back in 2000, C’s is literally the mother
of Shanghai dive bars, and is responsible for much of the nightlife we now take
for granted (many of today’s most prominent DJs played their first gigs here).
And the place still has one of the best bar vibes in town. The basement
labyrinth has a dancefloor, seating in every corner and even a band practice
room. Signature mojitos are 30RMB, with draft beers from 15RMB. Just a drunken
stroll from DADA, it’s an integral stop on Shanghai’s quintessential
down-and-dirty night out.
