Sir Elly’s Terrace
The terrace bar at the Peninsula Hotel’s fine French restaurant, Sir Elly’s, is the classiest spot to enjoy al fresco drinks on the Bund. With full-on glamour of a by-gone era and crème de le crème service (the French maître d’ always stays on his toes), Sir Elly’s is where Shanghai’s uber wealthy movers and shakers go to wind down and impress friends. The U-shaped terrace offers a 270-degree experience overlooking the promenade of colonial buildings, ships along the river and sparkling towers of Lujiazui. Drinks include rare whiskeys, special French wines and perfectly prepared tipples like dirty martinis.
