I could not have scripted a better musical prologue to my Christmas and New Year's Eves! I visited House of Blues and Jazz on both nights after attending concerts at the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center--a 9 piece Baroque orchestra ensemble and the Shanghai National Symphony Orchestra, respectively. Everything was just right: the general atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the warmhearted... More

Very expensive for what you get, poor quality food, a pint is about £8 Scruffy inside, more staff than customers whilst we where their. I wouldn't recommend this place.

We found a friendly scene at House of Blues & Jazz during a recent business trip, so much so that we went back several times. The owner and his wife were hospitable and friendly, and there was good (non-Chinese) food there. We went for an open mic night and a night that featured local jazz musicians. Both were fun. No...

Ok venue. About what you'd expect for a club located very centrally in a huge city - expensive drinks, crowded. The music was very good. The entertainment was a bar brawl between 2 groups though. Not smoky at all. Most full of tourists/expats,

It is an excellent place to relax the mind after 3 days of conference. One of my dining rules in mainland China is 'avoid any Western style food'. But the pasta there was an exception. Had no idea on what to drink. The waitress suggested something matched with the food and my mood. Impressive. Price of the drink was also... More

For our last night in Shanhghai we visited this club. It was excellent, great music and atmosphere (though inevitably some people never look up from their phones!), and even dancing.

This place is one of the longest running live music venues in Shanghai. They've generally always maintained a high standard of quality with the music. Drinks aren't great and are on the pricey side (but these prices are reflective of the location). Bar staff (some not all) are realllly rude and impatient.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
