Sister venue to the just-too-cool LAN Beijing, this new Shanghai hot spot knows a thing or two about impressing people. On the ground floor there’s a sumptuous Chinese lounge decked out in red, with black birdcages dotting the walls. Across the way is the Library Bar and there’s also a club area overflowing with mosaic mirrors and long marble tables. Sweeping staircases feature stenciled tree branches and lanterns dangle from the ceiling. As if that weren’t enough, there is also a cigar and cognac bar (members only), a private dining area, complete with jellyfish tank and an open-air winter garden with a glass roof and a stunning terrace. The mood is exclusive and just a little decadent, the crowd is very VIP.
