Malone`s American Bar Shanghai

malone`s is a great place for burgers, live music and a drink. normaly they have great live bands (from philippines) and the place is very popular for western people in shanghai. you will find a lot of nice asian girls there,  they smile to you, but than you should know, that they don`t search for a boyfriend, but for a customer.

the location is easy to find, 

very near to spot, judy`s,

manhattan and  big bamboo


link: malone`s american cafe (tong ren lu)


easy to find at the corner of

tong ren lu, yu yuan lu

    We "connect" this profile page with the Bar and not with the street address, so if the Bar has been closed, it will be listed here as "closed", even another Bar opened at the place later.
    You will find the profile page of the "new" bar than under the new name.
    Mostly a change like that will also change the staff, the concept, service and menu, so we prefer this way.

    The bar which is located on this address named "the spot" ;-)

    Chinese girls can't go to the bar,If it can't find guest,the guest can't find you,the door security regulations,what is this logic, the philippines girl can. Go in for the guest,it's unfair , the bar attendant in the philippines ,manager, singing, and miss Philippines

    It would be nice to have some good options besides Judy's and Man. Filipinas and some Chinese girls use to go to Malones it was a nice change and not many Chinese guys.
    Maybe it will catch on again.

  • #176

    Eric (Thursday, 11 February 2016 12:46)

    Very less Filipina now in SH. Diffciult get now a Vias for the girls. The most girls moved to Hongkong. But still some girls in SH. In the Spot bar I only did see one Filipina working girl in the last 4 weeks.

    Yes right next week theSpot will move from the old place to the redecorated old Malones. Then they also will redecorate the old Spot Bar place and maybe 4 weeks later Judy's will move o the old Spot Bar rooms.

    Eric (Saturday, 17 October 2015 03:59)

    The place will reopne last week of November or first week of December. But I do not know what will be the new style of the bar. The owner of Judy's and Spot Bar took over the old Malones.

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Friday, 24 April 2015 10:58)

    @frank f:
    unfortunatelly no new place where they went over to work. I know from a Phil girl here from our page, that the girls and management in Manhattan spend a lot of effort to keep the filipinos out (she has been blocked to enter or "kicked out" several times already), so they simply did not find another location where to forward their "work" after Malones went down the hill, so I would guess most girls gave up or even left Shanghai.


  • #151

    frank f (Friday, 24 April 2015 05:01)

    Where are now the filipino girls in Shanghai now? Feel tired of the viets!!

    What Kind of girls there? Chinese Ort fillipino? Wonder where the fillipino girls go now, before the was always in malones and the judys

  • #148

    Eric (Monday, 13 April 2015 14:28)

    Was there last Saturday short for one beer. Was crowded but very less working girls. I do not like the new waiters. Did not served my order and still asked for paying.

  • #147

    Willie (Monday, 06 April 2015 11:07)

    why no Viet working girls go to Malones. If girls go customers follow. I think they do good there. Mostly Western customers. This place use to be packed up stair and down stairs. Crazy why they not do good business

  • #146

    frank f (Monday, 06 April 2015 09:22)

    And where are now the fillipino girls in SH? If not malones where the go?

  • #145

    Eric (Monday, 06 April 2015 05:55)

    Was there Thursday for one beer at approx. 11:45pm. One Chinese working girl and maybe 8 people. Then all guests left and they closing at 12pm. Crazy how fast this place going down.

    Some days ago I passed by and seems a little bit more crowdy again now, but I was on a nightlife tour with a customer, so no chance to check, if the working girls came back. So any comment from a visitor who can update that would be appreciated ;-9

    Enjoy Shanghai,
