High above the world famous Shanghai Bund – on the 30th floor of Hotel Indigo to be precise – you will find CHAR Bar, a sexy space for wining, dining, and admiring one of the finest views in all of Shanghai. While it is true that many bars in town tout a fabulous view, CHAR bar and its stylish terrace looks down directly on the river with sweeping views over The Bund and Pudong skylines, putting it in a class all its own. Upon first entry to CHAR bar, you are embraced by an industrial chic interior, reminiscent of an upscale loft. Dark woods, stones, and exposed ceiling tiles are balanced with colorful modern art, displaying a playful attitude from the start. Home to one of the few certified sommeliers in China, CHAR bar offers the best wines from all over the world and a cocktail roster of tried-and-true classics like martinis and Moscow mules in addition to fun house-made libations perfect for breathing in the view with. Paramount among these signature cocktails are the CHAR Tini – Tasmanian raspberry infused liqueur, lemon juice, vodka, basil, and frothy egg white – and CHAR Mojito – rum, mint, fresh watermelon and lychee. It is at night when CHAR Bar truly shines as DJs play cool house music and when you step out onto the terrace after your latest trip to the bar, the lights and dazzling neon below are bound to blow you away.
