2. Salon de Ning
From the clouds to the ground - tucked in the basement of the luxe Peninsula Shanghai Hotel, Salon de Ning is a uniquely decorated clubby lounge and bar that blends travel mementoes and objets d’art with the decadence of 1930s Shanghai. Rich fabrics, red leather and animal prints adorn the bar and four separate, themed rooms. The must-see area is the upside-down room, with a fireplace and bookcases set in the ceiling. Expect a young crowd sipping cool cocktails and the treat of a fantastic live band.
