One of Shanghai’s first high-end cocktail lounges, Glamour Bar is an institution. The chic bar has outlived the competition due to its impeccable service, superbly crafted drinks and warm atmosphere. Flowing around a central, glowing red bar, the single expansive room has an intriguing mix of contemporary and traditional design. Guests can gather around antique chaise lounges, Ming dynasty chairs and velvety sofas while enjoying classic cocktails and small bites. While Glamour Bar lacks an outdoor terrace, floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the river and skyscrapers of Lujiazui. The subdued, refined setting makes it an especially popular lounge for an older, sophisticated crowd.
