Da Tong Mill Entry


da tong mill is a new hotspot, opened in jan 2010. the decoration is very strange, like a classic garden, everything is new and the place is much more "clean" than other bar hotspots in shanghai. but only less guest find this place, so hard for the bars to stay there with nearly no business.

    Don't bother going to this place for girl bars. In April, I went there on a Monday and did not find any girls working in the girl bars. The Exchange bar, for example, only had the bar bartender. I figure I gave it another shot and went there on a Thursday - same experience. I did hear bumping music from 3 clubs but did not venture inside.
