8 Songhu Lu
Another rink located in a mall (Bailian New Era in Yangpu), which isn't a bad thing because that means there’s options in the food and drink department after calling it a day. The arena itself isn’t Shanghai's most scenic (although the view of Songhu Lu is worth a pause from practicing your moves) but it's serviceable enough in a casual environment that’s suitable for all skillsets: the graceful who glide in the centre of the rink and the less graceful who prefer the comfort of the barrier.

The equipment isn't state of the art but does the job and kneepads are also provided by staff. Two hours costs 100RMB and if you want to extend the time to however long you feel (or your ankles can take), it's an extra 10RMB.
