- Great View
May 11, 2018
The highest rooftop venue in the entire city of Shanghai, Flair is the sparkling crown jewel of the Ritz Carlton Pudong, taking luxurious views to dizzying new levels. Staying at or simply visiting a Ritz Carlton is always an exciting experience, but with Flair awaiting you in Shanghai, you’d be forgiven for paying slightly less attention to the details of the hotel as you usually would. After an elevator journey delivers you to 58th floor, Flair unfurls before your eyes with a stunning decor designed by esteemed Japanese firm Super Potato. The inside of Flair is covered in striking puzzle piece Jenga-esque wall features and ravishing red details all under a glittering light fixture, while the outside terrace – where you’ll probably want to base yourself if weather allows – follows suit, with its floor being made of slatted wood and home to sleek outdoor daybed-style seating. The cocktails at Flair are excellent, no doubt, as they have an expertly mixed range of house specialties and international staples, but it is the view of sparkling Shanghai that you have come for – one that you will remember long after you are gone. The world famous Pearl Tower sits so close, you will almost feel as though you can reach out and grab it, and when the sun goes down and it lights up, along with the rest of the city, you are treated to a front row seat you won’t believe you are lucky enough to have bagged.
