Can't smoke inside only outside it's quite dark and dingy. Toilets upstrairs not very clean. Service very slow we went in happy hour and it wasn't even busy. Wine choices okay. Music was nice with videos but so many other nice places along the street.

I sat in the front row through two shows at the CJW. The music was spectacular and the drinks were spot on! I am a professional musician and a certified master mixologist, so I am very discriminating when it comes to cocktails and live music....More

This little bar hidden amongst the thriving Xintiandi district is a great way to unwind at the end of the day while enjoying some Jazz from an International group of extremely talented musicians.

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
