Zapata`s Club Heng Shan Lu

Zapata`s Shanghai Heng Shan Lu
Zapata`s Club Heng Shan Lu

Directly in the neigborhood of Sasha`s you will find Zapata`s. they even share the garden. Often named as "the best place for a date in town", this club is most popular for young "expats" from all over the world. Most famous is the lady`s night on wednesday with a lot of very sexy girls. Zapata`s is a famous pickup place, but you should know, a lot of the sexy girls there will be very interested to go home with you, but  not for "free". Every time you will hear the famous oldie song "Tequila" sexy bar girls will spend out Tequila from the Bar directly to your mouth, like you know it from the movie "Coyote Ugly". In summertime the garden is great for sit around, chat and watch the pretty girls walking by. 


Tip: Lady`s Night on Wednesday. Only at that day you will find several working girls there, but this day will also be a good chance for a "Freebie" (a Chinese girl, who is curious or interested to have fun with western guys). But avoid to go there on other days if your motivation is to pick up a girl. 

(And keep in mind, that a Chinese "Freebie" will get very expensive suddenly, if you next day pass a jewelry shop together with her ;-)


the place is very famous,

so every taxi driver should

find it very easy.

    Wednesday nights there are crowded with Westerners and last night there were no working girls at all. Disappointed; even the beer was of poor quality. Not worth the time.

    I was in Manhattan Bar last Wednesday (24.8.2016) and I met a vietnamese Girl with a long black dress and tan hair, more blond then brown. She was about 5'7"=170 cm and I would say her age is something between 20 and 25. Unfortunately, I lost her on my eyes. Does anybody know this girl? If yes, please send me an Mail (

    Visited location last Thursday around 11pm. Outdoors many visitors, indoors completely vacated, nobody on the dance floor. Nobody obviously ready for pick up. In my eyes no need to list this place here.
    I admit it is a nice location to eat and drink

    Anyone on here fancy making an evening of it on Wednesday Oct 20. Start with some food at Sashas, gravitate to here to see what is on offer then Manhattan if necessary. Not interested in Ladyboys, pref freelance or even freebie. Wechat = carpenterd

    Last time I was there, I had dinner and drinks and saw several hotties walking about. VN in origin. Later around 11:00 I went to Manhattan and met the same girls I was checking out earlier. I took one home from there and had a great night. Could ahve saved teh taxi fare and taken her from Zapata's

    I have been there last Monday. Latin night, crowdy, but no working girls, I would say. Only day for pickup working girls will be the wednesday, when there is ladies-night there. That day normally the club will be packed and also some working girls there. But not like in Manhattan or Judy`s club, so that means, 95% of the girls will be normal guest there (perhaps some of them also searching for an adventure), but you need some patience to find a working girl there.

    Have fun,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Tuesday, 14 October 2014 06:41)

    @vas: yes, wednesday is even the best day because of the ladies night. No Idea when they will open, but no need to be there before 9 or 10. But if you arrive earlier, than you can just have a "warm-up-drink" in Sasha's beside, they share the garden and this bar even surf food.

    Enjoy Shanghai,

    @Kent: Sorry for the missunderstanding, that was only the polite way to tell you, they are working girls and will charge money, if you want to take them out for sex.

    Enjoy the city,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide, Thanks your introduction of Zapata Bar.
    But I can not 陀螺仪understand some wording in your introduction such as "a lot of sexy girls interested to go home with you but not for free" Does that mean the girils only going home but not going to hotel with the customer?

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Wednesday, 14 May 2014 15:48)

    Zappata's is not far from Manhattan. In nighttime around 10 minutes and around 18 RMB for the taxi (and in daytime no need to go there;-))

    With this weather ZAPATAS will be a good deal. Though working girls maybe less there will always be a few?

    No, only checked, if they are still in business. One of our friends went there 2 weeks ago and confirmed, they are still open, but he was there on friday, not wednesday.

    that s true, this place only serve fake alcohol for drinks

  • #32

    Avoid this place: they'll mix in industrial alcohol whenever they can. It will ruin your stomach and intestines.

    sb (Sunday, 19 May 2013 03:08)

    Was there till 2am.
    not bad great place to dance and nice outside. Very busy. Good fun bar.
    didnt notice any really obvious working girls. Completly different to manhattens. I think you can enjoy more normality here than manhatten. Smaller than i expected it to be, but a good night can be had there for sure.

    Zapatas is also a place where you can get pick-pocked, got my mobile stolen there.

    ups (Wednesday, 06 March 2013 03:27)

    I checked it out on Friday around midnite. It was just ok. Usual mix of expats and some African working girls. I guess once they open the outdoor seating in Spring it will improve.

  • #27

    Angus (Sunday, 03 March 2013 00:26)

    I was there last night, just few good locking girl but a lot of people were there dancing. Now they have 2 dancers serving free tequila, one is not really slim but still hot, the second one is simply perfect with an amazing pair of legs and a nice ass. If anyone knows how take her home, pls kindly write a comment in here

    I was there last night but it was very quiet.
    Bad experience about zapatas.
    But I must be say manhattan bar is better for drink and dancing and pickup girls.

  • #25

    ups (Tuesday, 26 February 2013)

    Ha Ha sb, good one. Sorry I missed the above. But looks nobody is updating their experiences hers. Most updates are only Manhattans. Zapatas will pick up in Spring and I have noticed its not a winter hang out.

    how much to take home the tall dancer?

  • #19

    Dino (Monday, 17 December 2012 05:53)

    Hung out there this past Friday. Great place to be. Lot's of regular girls and working girls. The regular girls were very friendly. Problem is I don't speak Chinese. The working girls were cool too. One asked for 870 yuan. It was about midnight. My friend said the prices will go down as the night wears on. Then a totally unattractive one asked for 2000 yuan. Telling me that's the normal rate. Any case, don't ever pay for more than 1000 yuan.

    Hi everyone, does someone knows out to take home the dancer girls in Zapata? They are so hot now

    @MrHappy: what you ask for (BBBJ) is common, should be no problem, especially for the girls in Manhattan Club.

  • #16

    MrHappy (Monday, 23 April 2012 11:13)

    Is it common for girls to do blowjob without condom (BBBJ)? If not, can you pay a bit extra to get this service?

    Indianlover (Thursday, 01 December 2011 23:11)

    One of the only places I know where you have some chance to pick up a regular not working girl for free. I got four freebies from there till now (but you need a lot of luck to find them.

  • #14

    AK (Thursday, 06 October 2011 13:19)


    Went to Zapatas alone last nite. The place was full with a mixed crowd of Asians & Westerners, Working Girls and regular crowd. The place is recommended to anyone who wants to have a good time though the dance floor gets crowded. You can paty in peace or pick up women. The bar outside serves efficiently and does not rip you off though I was asked to pay extra for one of the drinks.

    Hi Jake, try the Dragon Club ( or Bar Rouge a the bund ( This should be the only places where you can find international freelancers, but also very less.

  • #12

    Jake Jed (Monday, 26 September 2011 00:02)

    Hello Gentlemen,
    Anyone know where the Russian/European freelancers hang out. In BKK it was CM2 and Mixx. I assume there's a similar situation in SH. Thanks.

  • #11

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Wednesday, 07 September 2011 22:58)

    No, very easy. It looks like that, but it is at the corner of a very busy street and also all the time a lot of cabs waiting around.

  • #10

    Ale (Wednesday, 07 September 2011 21:51)

    Just curious, any problem getting a cab to the hotel? From the pic, it appears "isolated". Thanks
