Cotton Club

Cotton Club

Claiming to be Shanghai’s ‘first jazz bar in the modern era,’ Cotton Club has a bluesy, rough-and-tumble feel. This smoky, loud, and dark live music bar in the heart of the French Concession has been around for decades. The plush red decor looks like it hasn’t been updated since the doors first opened, but the crowd of regulars never seem to mind as they crowd around tables and listen to the house band rock out late into the night.
