Magpie, Shanghai


685 Julu Rd.,


An old villa is the setting for this spa in the French Concession. A Qin brick façade and Ming-era furniture add to the authentic feel. A stream bubbles in the foyer, and the massage rooms are neat and warmly-lit. Known for having masseuses trained in traditional Chinese medicine, the spa offers a range of treatments including Thai, oil, and traditional Chinese. Magpie aims to combine relaxation and preventative medicine; a signature is the backbone and shoulder massage.
