“stunning view, great date location”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

If you want to wow your date with Shanghai, bring her here. The location is great, with a stunning view of Shanghai, especially at night. Make sure to get a table at the terrace, you will be rewarded with a great view of the Pearl tower and the Bund. The prices are high, but the view is worth it.

“Great view, high priced but worth to go”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Depending on weekday and time there is a minimum spending required if you want a table (nicer area below with sofas is quite expensive) but the view is great and a sunset - if Shanghai air allows - has indeed a special flair and atmosphere on top of the Ritz Carlton. We have been here three times now and despite the high price it was always worth it. Really hard to get seating with view though but you can walk up to the edge for a look and pictures.

“Great location”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

If you are looking for the best view of Shanghai, the Perl tower, and a cool place to have a drink and dinner the rooftop here is for you. We are a family of four, and went there for drinks and some light dinner, The drinks were great although very pricey at over $20 us each, and the food was similarly overpriced. But, it is worth going for the view. Do not expect quick service.

Sushi and stir fried rice were very good.

“Quite for a sky bar”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Maybe it's a Sunday night there isn't a crowd like the one in Bangkok no loud music, no energy and especially the lights of the city is switch off. Even the sky bar at HCM has more energy and it's alive at tis hr. Last order is at 12 pm so don't come at at 12 pm.

“Must visit in Shanghai !”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is the highest outdoor bar in Shanghai, and with the Pearl Tower floating before your eyes.
Prices are sky-high, but I think worth for the experience.

I was only disappointed by the complicated booking of table. I wanted to book it for outside and they told me only for guests. Fortunately our membership of the Ritz Carlton was accepted for the reservation. But didn't understand, why they did it so impossible when it wasn't even crowded.
This is definitely a must visit in Shanghai, but don't forget of booking.
