For Foreign visitors and, rich young Chinese, this location is the hottest "upscale" place in Shanghai.
Here is the hot spot where you will find the drivers and their crew after the formula one race or the models after the Gucci catwalk event!
Located at the Bund, they have a big terrace with a great view to Pudong. Probably the best location for a typical Shanghai selfie! We recommend to arrive there before 10 pm, because later in the night the lights on many of the famous buildings like for example the Pearl Tower will be switched off and the view to the lighted Pudong skyline is probably the most amazing aspect of Bar Rouge.
Like many Chinese bars and clubs, they will often (especially when they have many guests) reserve the table and combine the "opening" of a table for you with a minimum spending. The minimum fee for a table is high compared with other clubs. On weekend could be rmb 5000 for a table on the terrace and beween rmb 1000 to 3000 for a table inside. but there is no minimum fee for a drink at the bar, so no need to "open your own table" if you not plan to party with a group. You should keep in mind, that this bar is not the right place for to find your future girlfriend or a free "one night stand", because here the girls are focused on the "walking wallet", so most of the girls here will try to find a guy who pay for their Prada and Gucci accessories. But if you are looking for "High End" working girls, than you have a good chance in this club. Bar Rouge is also the only place where you can find some Russian or South American working girls in Shanghai at the moment, but the rates are higher than on other places in Shanghai. Girls will not start with less than RMB 5000,- for overnight and you will be lucky, if you can get them down to RMB 3000,-
This is an upscale club, so they will care about the "dress-code" often, so we recommend to follow some basic rules not to be refused:
Beside that you will not get any problems to enter the bar, we are sure, but if you ignore the dress-code, they will probably block you at the entry because of your personal "styling".
Every taxi driver will find it, because "The Bund" is the most popular location for every visitor in Shanghai and this bar is a well know highlight for higher class Chinese and Foreigners!
